PNW Poker Leaderboard — 20–21 May 2021

Have you ever had a couple of days when everything just seemed to be going your way? Joshua Jutz from Pasco did early this month. First off, he got into the 224-entry Wynn Signature Series $40K GTD NLHE on 2 May and won the whole thing for his fifth and biggest-ever recorded cash. You know how those things go, he probably wasn’t back into his room until pretty early. But at some point mid-day on 3 May, he went across the street and joined 67 other entries in the Venetian Deepstack Championship Poker Series #1 $20K GTD NLHE Survivor, and cashed for the top prize along with 6 others. Now, I’m just guessing here, but I think he waited until Day 1B (4 May) of the 2-Day Wynn $100K GTD NLHE (626 entries), then came back the next day to take 5th, for his 2nd-best cash. All that moves Jutz onto the Pacific Northwest Poker Leaderboard for the first time at #1969.

Dylan Wilkerson moves up a slot on the Leaderboard with 8th place in the 995-entry Wynn $250K GTD NLHE. It’s enough for him to slip past Greg Mueller to #13.

8th place in the Wynn $400K GTD NLHE takes Federal Way’s Daniel Park from #213 to #197. The tournament got 851 entries over 3 start days. Renton’s Brian Meadows picked up his best-ever cash by taking 2nd in the same event; Meadows climbs from #1048 to #408.

Tyrone Smith (University Place) was runner-up in the 581-entry Wynn $100K GTD NLHE  on 26–28 April. It’s Smith’s largest cash so far, and he moves more than 3,400 places on the leaderboard, to #1957.

Kent’s Jonas Laid goes up more than 1900 places to #1511 with a 2nd as part of a 3-way deal in Venetian #10 $100K GTD NLHE MonsterStack.There were 543 entries.

More movement in the Top 20 comes from Dylan Linde, whose 6 May 4th place in an Aria NLHE High Roller with 46 entries was enough to propel him past the Lees (Watkinson and Markholt) and Annie Duke(!) from #10 to #7! Exciting!

And as we often do, we wrap up an edition of the Leaderboard with a Seth Davies (#1) cash. He was the runner-up to Bill Klein in an Aria NLHE High Roller with a $25K buy-in. He came in just ahead of Ali Imsirovic.
