While perusing the Brasilia room, we came across a massive stack sitting in front of Andy Frankenberger. Frankenberger is no stranger to success, however, as he has managed to rack up many notable poker honors over the past few years.
Last year, Frankenberger managed to best a field of 2,500 people in a $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event to take down his first WSOP gold bracelet and $599,153 in prize money. Prior to that, Frankenberger was named the 2010 World Poker Tour Player of the Year.
More recently, Frankenberger has found success early on at this year's WSOP. Frankenberger finished in an impressive 8th place in Event 3: $3,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha, losing heads up to the eventual champion, Leif Force.
With Frankenberger sitting on such a massive stack early on, it will be interesting to see how he pushes the action at his table. Frankenberger will most certainly be a force to be reckoned with during this tournament, and we will keep you updated on his quest to add a second gold bracelet to his collection.
