Chase Bianchi has played and won on several major tours around the world, most recently finishing 9th in the 2021 WSOP Main Event for one million dollars – a year after retiring from the game as a full-time player! We talk about his start in poker, what it has been like to ascend and retire, his religious faith, and some of his favourite poker rooms to visit.

Chase is active on Twitter as @chase_bianchi
