Joseph CheongUnited States
Is Joseph Cheong the best player without a bracelet? Since his third-place finish in the 2010 WSOP main event, Cheong has found great success across the world, especially in the high-roller events. He has had three top-four finishes in WSOP action, including a runner-up finish in Event 6 last year and a fourth-place finish in the WSOP Europe main event. He has done everything but win on the WSOP felt. Given his results so far in 2013, if there's anyone we can call a favorite to get the job done, we're going to give him the nod.
A week before the start of the Series, Cheong finished second in the WPT's $100,000 Super High Roller, giving him his third score of the year worth more than half a million. His lone victory came at APT Philippines, where he pocketed $1.3 million by outlasting the 18-entry field.
