You can’t get a much better start to your poker history than Nhathanh Nguyen of Mukilteo, Washington got this week, with fifh place in the World Series of Poker Event #13: $1,500 Big Blind Antes NLHE. It’s Nguyen’s first and only (so far) entry in his Hendon Mob profile, and it puts him in the top 10% of the 3,500 Oregon, Washington, and Idaho poker players that I track (those with more than $3K in lifetime winnings).
I wanted to include someone in the last leaderboard report with a bunch of other mix game players, for a win at the Venetian Deepstack Championship Poker Series #43 $50K GTD HORSE. The winner report from the Venetian listed the winner as August Dodine from Portland, so there’s a Hendon Mob profile with that name and a single cash. But when I went looking for a winner photo on the Venetian Poler Room blog, the final table chip count and caption named the winner as August Bodine, and there’s a guy with that name in Hendon Mob, but he lists Vegas as his home. Anyway, congrats to anyone winning a HORSE tournament,
Dylan Wilkerson (#9 on the leaderboard) leads the way for the usual suspects, with a 3rd in the Venetian DCPS #50 $400K GTD NLHE Bounty.
And #1 on the PNW Poker Leaderboard, Scott Clements slightly increased his more than $7.5 million in lifetime earnings with 7th place in the WSOP #15: $1,500 HORSE.
