Mark "Pegasus" Smith has around 20,000 chips in his possession and is cruising here in Event #30.
Smith is extremely well-known on the WSOP Circuit where he has five outright victories, which means five WSOP Circuit rings. At the start of the 2013 WSOP, Smith cashed in the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Six-Handed tournament, finishing 41st for a $5,599. Last week, Smith came second in one of the $365 buy-in Carnivale of Poker events here at the Rio, a result that netted him $12,266.
Now he is on course for yet another cash here in this tournament.
