Momentum is a huge force in poker. Whether it's a cash-game heater, a multi-event MTT streak or picking up where you left off at the 2009 WSOP, winners just seem to keep on winning.
With the 2010 WSOP almost here we're taking a look at the people who will be riding a wave of 2009 WSOP success into this year's Series.
In the next installment of the series we're shining the spotlight on Brock "tsoprano" Parker.
Parker was no stranger to the WSOP in 2009 but it wasn't until that year that he really made his mark.
With two bracelets, a total of six cashes and over $800,000 in earnings last year Parker will be looking to capitalize on that momentum in a big way this summer.
Transitioning from the game of Magic to online poker, Parker was a legend on the internet long before he had a WSOP bracelet on his wrist. When he found himself heads-up against Daniel Negreanu in the $2,500 Limit Hold'em event last summer he was favored my many against the seasoned live veteran.
He defeated Kid Poker and just three days later he was heads-up again in the $2,500 Six-Max No-Limit event against Joe Serock. He managed to close the deal once again and joined that exclusive group of people with two bracelets in the same year.
Check out the video interviews we shot with Brock last summer and keep an eye on our Live Coverage of the 2010 WSOP to see if he can build on his success from last year.
