Sirisakorn Earns His First WSOP Bracelet

There were 405 players who took part in the 2017 WSOP $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo event.


It was a keenly contested event and at the end of the day, it was Smith Sirisakorn who had the final laugh. He took home the first WSOP gold bracelet of his career and also the top prize of $215,902.

Sirisakorn did not have any live cash earnings to report about when he entered the tournament. He has only one cash from a tournament and that was many years ago. He mainly plays cash game in Los Angeles and loves playing the Stud/8, $40 or $80 limits or the Omaha/8 disciplines.

Smith said that he did not play in many tournaments. He is just a recreational player even though he has loads of experience playing in the cash games. Sirisakorn entered the final day of the event with a decent stack. He was in 3rd position among the final 14 players who made it to the final day. He was able to get the better of all players on his table from the start and ran over them. He climbed to over 1 million chips within the first hour of play. (more…)

Jennifer Harman inducted into Poker Hall Of Fame

Professional poker player Jennifer Harman, earlier this month, was inducted in Poker Hall of Fame at an event in Downtown Las Vegas. Jennifer as well as her fellow poker pro John Juanda became the No. 49 and No. 50 members of Poker Hall of Fame.
Harman, now 50, had been among the pask of 10 finalists many times in recent times, but had always fallen short till this year. Jennifer has around US$ 2.5 million in event earnings, with 2 career bracelets, but he is known for winning an incalculable amount millions in cash games.
A leading poker news site recently talked to Jennifer following her induction. Following her induction, there are millions and millions of people who engage in poker and there are just fifty in Poker Hall of Fame. Now, this is quite an honor to be among those pros at this point of time. This is freaking unbelievable. He feels that she has grinded and put in a lot of hard work to get the acknowledgment for what she has done. This makes her feel very good.
