Event 20: Time for a Live Score for Sumit Kumar

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH
Sumit Kumar and Yevgeniy Timoshenko
Sumit Kumar (Richmond, VA) is one of several online turned live players who have helped contribute to the largest WPT field in history (1313 entries). Kumar has just over $4,000 in live poker tournament winnings but his online scores under the handle pool_shark_1 top $800,000.

Despite this impressive figure, Sumit is also a family man and has a full-time career in banking. He's sitting with ~240K in chips as we approach the bubble. If he cashes in this event he'll triple his live earnings!

Since April 15, Sumit has been playing in more live events and is getting used to it. Although he's comfortable with his day three table draw, he's not happy about the player he drew to his direct left: the formidable Yevgeniy Timoshenko.
