• Update from this years WSOP 2019

    I had 12 cashes in WSOP this summer and 2 final tables. One of them was in the online tourney, which was exciting! Almost picked up a bracelet in 12 hours of play! That’s 136 WSOP cashes (number 1), 57 Final Tables (number 1), 10 second place finishes (tied number 1 w Daniel Negreanu), and 15 wins (number 1).

    I just finished 5th in Mega Millions tourney, we made a five-way deal. Was very cool for two reasons: back-to-back Final Tables in last two tourneys I played in (WSOP $5,000 and Mega Mullions) AND back-to-back Final Tables at Bike: 2017 WPT and 2019 Mega Millions. Lots of history!! I’m heading to WSOPE in Rozvadov, Czech Republic in October.

    I have now raised $54 Million for charity! $1.7 M more from the Chicago charity tourney in November, $1.5 M more from the Clinton Foundation tourney.
