Amanda Musumeci During Her Deep Run in the 2011 Main Event

Upon browsing through the Silver section of the Brasilia room, we found Amanda Musumeci sitting on a healthy stack of about 25,000. Musumeci burst on to the poker scene last year with an impressive four cashes at the 2011 WSOP.

Most notably of Musumeci's finishes last year was her deep run in the Main Event. Musumeci was able to best the gigantic field and finish in 62nd place, which puts her run among the top 1% of last year's field. Since then, Musumeci has been tearing up the WSOP Circuit, with final tables in events at the Palm Beach Kennel Club, Atlantic City, Council Bluffs, and St. Louis.

Last October, Musumeci sat down with PokerNews hostess Kristy Arnett to discuss strategy and her WSOP Main Event run.

Musumeci is still in the hunt for her first WSOP bracelet, and with the healthy stack that she is currently sporting, this time around may certainly be a possibility.
