Juan Martin Pastor hails from Argentina and is making the largest cash result of his young poker career. The 22-year-old boasts $36,474 in live tournament earnings, with his best result stemming from a $12,021 score at the Latin America Poker Tour VI Colombia National Poker Championship in 2013. But, just because Pastor doesn't have a laundry list of live titles and deep runs doesn't mean he isn't experienced.
Pastor finished last year by achieving Supernova Elite status on PokerStars. For one to do that, they must play a ton of poker, grinding out many, many hands and logging loads of hours. He's known as "pastorcito" online and worked his way up through the virtual ranks where he now specializes in Zoom Poker.
Entering Day 6 with 2.655 million in chips, Pastor will have some work cut out for him as he is second to last on the leaderboard with a less-than-average stack.
