If you feel like you’ve these two players before, it’s because you have. Consistency helps in maintaining tournament scores and the following two players have already started building toward another trip to the payout cage.
Travis Hartshorn has crushed the East Coast scene over the last few months and came close twice this month to winning another tournament. Hartshorn took 10th in the SugarRush Challenge a few weeks ago and followed that up by final tabling the Sands Deepstack Extravaganza Main Event. He rarely says much at the table but Hartshorn puts fear into his opponents simply by taking their chips.
John Attanasio turned the SugarRush Challenge into his personal ATM in 2016. Attanasio cashed three times, made two final tables, and won the title in November. Attanasio first came into focus around this time last year when cashed in the PNIA Main Event and is among the betting favorites to make another deep run.
