Biography

Chris Hunichen is a high-stakes poker player from North Carolina with $8.4 million in live earnings. Hunichen sits first on the state's all-time money list, just ahead of 2005 WSOP Main Event winner Greg Raymer.

Hunichen's biggest cash came at the online 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) on GGPoker.com in the $25,000 NLH Poker Player's Championship, where he finished runner-up for $1.3 million. Three years earlier at the 2017 WSOP, Hunichen finished in second in a $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed event for $358,677.

In 2021, Hunichen final tabled the $50,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed event, ultimately finishing in fifth place for $266,031.

Despite racking up 58 WSOP cashes worth $2.9 million, Hunichen has yet to get his hands on a bracelet or circuit ring. That could change if he is able to make a deep run at the 2022 WSOP.

Outside of the WSOP, Hunichen has had success on the high roller circuit. In November 2019, he finished third in the $10,000 partypoker LIVE NLH Millions Main Event for $1.1 million.

2019 was quite the year for Hunichen as he also finished second in the $100,000 US Poker Open NLH Main Event for $940,000, took down the €10,300 EPT High Roller for $927,408 and finished fourth in the PCA Super High Roller for $627,340.
