Our intrepid PokerNews field reporter has spotted Sean Getzwiller in the field, and while his name might not be well-known to most poker fans, we have a feeling it will be when this year's WSOP is all said and done.
Getzwiller is coming off of his 1st place finish in Event # 8, the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em tournament, as well as a final table appearance in Event # 24, the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout. After winning his first WSOP bracelet, and coming so close to another just two weeks later, Getzwiller is sure to be mentioned in any Player of the Year discussion.
So far on Day 1 of this tournament, Getzwiller's rush shows no signs of slowing down, and he has quickly built his starting stack of 4,500 to over 15,000. Positioned near the top of the leaderboard right out of the gate, Getzwiller will be looking to continue his impressive 2011 WSOP with another deep run in this event.
