Jared Jaffee Takes Down WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino $1,675 Main Event
Poker pro Jared Jaffee added another title to his portfolio last night. The player topped the field of the WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino Main Event for $211,220 and his first gold ring. Jaffee now has more than $3.4 million in live tournament earnings.
The player is a one-time WSOP gold bracelet winner and one-time WPT Main Tour Main Event winner. He won his WPT title back in 2013 when he bested the $3,500 Main Event at Florida poker room bestbet Jacksonville. In 2014, he scooped his gold bracelet from the WSOP. The player emerged victorious from the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Mixed Max for the piece of jewelry and the amount of $405,428.
Prior to last night, Jaffee had cashed in six WSOP Circuit events, collecting a little over $40,000 in those. He has been much more profitable in WSOP events over the years. He has cashed in 24 of those over the course of his career, collecting a total of $847,963.
Jaffee entered the final day of the WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino Main Event 10th in chips out of 14 remaining players. He kept himself in the lower half of the leaderboard when the unofficial final table of ten was set, and then when the names of the nine final tablists became clear.
However, during eight-handed play he doubled through his opponent Chahn Jung to take the chip lead.
The Bicycle Casino was the final WSOP Circuit stop of the year. The next festival on the series’ schedule will kick off on January 3 at Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma.
