Main Event

Seat 2: Anthony Gregg, 25, Maryland, USA -- 1,160,000 chips

Anthony Gregg

Anthony Gregg started playing poker at age 18. Once an online cash game specialist and mid-stakes regular, the young man from Maryland in the United States made his biggest live poker score right here at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure at age 22. In 2009, Gregg finished in second place to Poorya Nazari in the PCA Main Event.

At the time, Gregg was on a complete freeroll after cashing in 800,000 of his Frequent Player Points for a seat in the Main Event. His score was worth $1.7 million. Gregg’s appearance at the 2012 final table will be the first time anyone has made two PCA Main Event final tables.

Now 25, Gregg has been focusing on playing live games in the Washington D.C. area. He said, “It's really cool making the PCA final again. I don't think anyone has ever done that. I'm the short stack for tomorrow, so not really under any pressure.”
