Penn Law Places Two Editors on Prestigious Harvard Journal
WHAT’S THE MOST lucrative game for a lawyer? Litigation? M&A? For Bradley Kondracki 2L, it may be no-limit hold’em. Kondracki took eighth place in the World Series of Poker’s main event in July, bringing home $1.15 million.

Kondracki won the $10,000 registration fee for the world-class event in an online tournament. The youngest to reach the final table of nine from an original group of over 5,600 competitors, even Kondracki was surprised to have performed so well. But the 24-year-old’s luck was supplemented by hard-won experience: Kondracki took a year off before coming to Penn Law to play poker 50 hours a week. Even during his year as a 1L, between studying and attending classes, Kondracki says he fit in about 25 hours a week.
