Elizabeth Hunter Returns as a Regular Poker Player

Elizabeth Hunter says she's a regular but took a few years off to focus on getting her daughter through high school and out of the house. She succeeded and is now back on the grind, sitting with just over 18,000 chips on Day 1a of the RGPS Main Event.

She came to Omaha by way of St. Louis and has been working for a transportation company for a "long time."

With her daughter working and settled after graduating from high school, Hunter, who has $17,452 in career tournament winnings, has now returned her focus to being a regular poker player and is looking to add to that number. Her biggest cash to date is $11,390 for a third-place finish in 2014 here in Council Bluffs.
