2012 WSOP Qualifier #5

Jesse P. from Visalia, CA wins $10,000 seat into WSOP Main Event!

On Saturday, March 3rd the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino staged our 5th of 8 scheduled WSOP Main Event Satellites! The 11:15am event sold out at 100 players in record time before 9:30am! An additional 9 alternates were seated in the first hour. As always, it is highly recommended that you take advantage of pre-registration. Don’t get shut out and come by the poker room soon and sign-up for the April 7th event.

Jesse Posada Jr. from Visalia, CA. ended heads-up with Susan T. at the final table. Susan had made a miraculous turn-around from starting the final table as short-stack and was now second in chips. After a back and forth battle we saw a final flop of KJJ. Susan shipped in her stack and Jesse snap called. Susan rolled over K7 and Jesse tabled his QJ. Blanks fell on the turn and river and Jesse became the 5th member of 2012 Team Tachi.

Jesse won a $10,000 seat into the 2012 WSOP Main Event, $2,000 for travel expenses, and $1,190 (7-way chop) in immediate cash winnings! Awesome score for a $225 buy-in!
