Gambling911.com has looked at the top 14 chip leaders at the 2010 WSOP already.

Coming in at number 15 was David Baker of Katy, Texas.

He has two first place finishes in live poker tournaments to date and over $1 million in winnings, making him one of the most successful poker players among the remaining 27.  He also finished 6th at the 2nd event of this year’s World Series of Poker, the Players Championship. 

Another Dave Baker oddly enough was eliminated in 28th place. 

Michael Mizrachi is perhaps the best known player remaining in the field of 27 at this year’s WSOP main event.  He was the 16th biggest chip leader.

Mizrachi was profiled on Gambling911.com and elsewhere for going into foreclosure and having a $300,000 plus tax lien placed on him by the IRS just a few months back.  Since that time, Mizrachi has won nearly $2 million. 

Interestingly enough, Mizrachi came in 1st place at this year’s Players Championship (as noted above, the 15th chip leader David Baker cashed out in that event at 6th place).  Mizrachi’s 1st place finish earned him $1.6 million.

“The Grinder”, as he is known, has cashed out in 86 events overall and has won more than $8.6 million in career live poker tournaments. 

Brandon Steven of Wichita, Kansas was the 17th chip leader and a relative unknown to the poker circuit.

Adam Levy, as the 18th biggest chip leader, represents Los Angeles.  He also represents Gambling911.com powerhouse sponsor UB.com.  That online poker room claims he has won over $3 million playing poker, all coming from quantity since most of these wins were relatively small.

Phil Hellmuth berated Levy for a good five minutes at this year’s World Series of Poker and nobody can quite figure out why.
