Chase Bianchi’s Main Event Story

“My faith in Christ is so much more than this”

Chase Bianchi has come a long way since learning to play poker alongside his baseball teammates in Seattle. Bianchi’s amassed over $850,000 in career earnings — second only to Koray Aldemir at the Final Table — including a WSOP bracelet in 2016. He defeated a 2,242-player field to win Event #17: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $316,920.

This year he flew out especially for the Main Event, and is now just eight eliminations away from winning a second WSOP bracelet.

An intensely religious man of faith, Bianchi has two foster children with his wife, and told PokerNews that after an exhausting day playing down to the final table he can’t wait to relax and unwind with a good book.

But when asked what this meant to him, Bianchi was unequivocal in his response.

“My faith in Christ is so much more than this,” he told PokerNews. “[Final-tabling the Main Event] is a sack of crap compared to the treasure we have in Christ.”

Chase Bianchi Key Hands

One of the key hands that propelled Bianchi to the final table took place on Day 7 in Level 32 (150,000/300,000/300,000).

Brazil’s Philipe Pizzari Pinto raised to 650,000 under the gun and Bianchi three-bet to 1.7 million from the hijack. Action folded back to Pinto and he called to see a flop of {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Pinto checked and Bianchi continued for 1.2 million, which the Brazilian called.

On the {8-Hearts} turn, Pinto led out for 2.5 million and Bianchi responded by raising all in. Pinto called off the 2.38 million he had behind and the hands were tabled.

Philipe Pizzari Pinto: {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Chase Bianchi: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

Bianchi was ahead with aces while Pinto was drawing to a heart flush. Unfortunately for him, the {10-Clubs} river was brick and Bianchi’s pocket rockets held to score the knockout.

What to Watch For

As the last remaining bracelet-winner left in the field, Bianchi knows what it’s like to be at the business end of a WSOP tournament. In 2016, when he won his first bracelet, Bianchi defeated a final table that included Welsh Triple Crown winner Roberto Romanello, and will need to do it again with a player like Aldemir heading the field.

Starting the final table eighth in chips, Bianchi has a buffer to Jareth East who is ninth in chips, but is less than two big blinds behind Hye Park. Expect Bianchi to set his sites first on reeling in Park, and then mounting an assault on the rest of the table.
