Kyle Montgomery is a 27-year-old professional poker player who transplanted himself from Indiana in the US to right here in Melbourne, Australia. He lists his greatest poker accomplishment as becoming a Supernova Elite on PokerStars "many times," although this final table could certainly change that.
Looking into the record books, no live tournament cashes were found for Montgomery, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have game. It takes a lot of tough grinding to become a Superova Elite, and even former World Series of Poker Main Event champion Greg Merson gave a shoutout to Montgomery on Twitter, calling him "one of the sickest grinders I know."
Montgomery's favorite sports teams are the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers. The Colts quarterback, Andrew Luck, is know for his young, athletic ability with great intelligence and a knack for pulling off late comebacks. A comeback is what Montgomery will be hoping to do here as he enters the final day fifth in chips with 950,000.
