James Herderhorst is originally from Kentucky but now lives in Independence, MO. He owns a locksmith company and has been married for 15 years to Britton, an engineer who also plays poker. They've been married for 15 years.
He qualified thanks to a ninth-place finish at RGPS Kansas City last weekend.
Herderhorst was the first player to show up this morning for breakfast. He has $7,596 in career winnings on four cashes. With, one cash from 2005 and then three from 2017, it seems Herderhorst is as recreational a player as there is. He seems very excited to have a shot at the Poker After Dark seat.
