Team PokerStars Pro and Mexico native Angel Guillen is in the field today. Guillen burst onto the poker scene back in 2009 when he finished 2nd in a No Limit Hold'em event at the WSOP and then took down his first bracelet in another Hold'em event a mere ten days later.
Last week, Guillen scored an impressive 2nd place finish at the LAPT Punta del Este Main Event which earned him $126,240 in prize money. Guillen also was the victor in a remarkably dramatic hand from that event that tripled him up and allowed him enough chips to make the final table.
When we last caught up with Guillen, he was staring down at a board of and a bet of 525 from his opponent. Guillen flipped chips off of his stack and flicked them into the center of the table. Unfortunately for Guillen, his opponent flipped over for queens full of tens and Guillen mucked his hand. That being said, Guillen is still sitting on a more than solid stack of 6,250.
