Ben Yu has had a decent afternoon and early evening here at Event 59. By the dinner break he amassed a stack of 25,800 and has essentially maintained that since we've started back.
Yu is looking to improve on a 14th-place finish in Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better from earlier this summer. Yu also stone-cold bubbled Event 45: $50,000 Poker Players Championship where he finished in 17th.
Yu's best-ever showing in a WSOP event was a runner-up finish in the $1,500 limit hold'em shootout in 2010 won by Brendan Taylor.
