PNW Poker Leaderboard — 5 July 2022

What could be more WSOP than Kevmath?

Tomorrow’s the last entry day for this year’s World Series of Poker Main Event and as I’m still in Portland for a variety of reasons, it looks like another year that I’m not playing it. Good luck to everybody luck enough to be playing today (Steve Roselius) and tomorrow, and to the folks that have already made it through to Day 2 (Angela Jordison and Jackie Burkhart, among others)! Wish I was there to at least rail.

Key to the Leaderboard

  • Name and home town (according to the player’s Hendon Mob profile).

  • Their change in status on the Leaderboard (with an arrow indicating up or down), or a black club (♣) if this is their first appearance.
  • For each of the tournaments that are being recognized in this Leaderboard:
    • The name and link to the Hendon Mob listing for that tournament.

Mohammad Mufti (Bellevue, Washington)
#2086
#1310
+776
2nd of 569 entries, $113.8K prize pool

This cash wasn’t as large as some of the others this far down the list (which is roughly ordered by the total amount of winnings reported in this period) but Mufti racked up four other smaller cashes over the last couple weeks of June, and two more on the first two days of July.

Jimmy Lee (Edmonton, Alberta)
#71
#67
+4
13th of 2154 entries, $2M prize pool
Thomas Hassell (Portland, Oregon)
#2375
1st of 637 entries, $127.4K prize pool

If you’ve got a sharp eye, you might be wondering: “Hey, there are three WSOP Deep Stack results shown, with the same number of entries, and players in the top three positions, were they all from the same day?” If so, you’d be correct, because Hassell, Kriventsov, and Gates were the PNW trifecta on 20 June.

Andy Su (Portland, Oregon)
#351
#318
+33
25th of 13595 entries, $4.4M prize pool
David Johnson (Grande Prairie, Alberta)
#3157
#1608
+1549
3rd of 247 entries, $0 prize pool

Hendon Mob has the prize pool for this event at $49K, but the top prize was $35K, so I’m fairly ceretain that’s wrong. The WSOP site just says tbd.

#40
#40
0
42nd of 1977 entries, $3.5M prize pool

This individual result was just over the threshold to get on the Leaderboard, but Mackoff is another of the serial cashers appearing here, with twelve WSOP cashes (both live and online) in June, as well as a cash at the Venetian.
