PCA champ Harrison Gimbel wins another major poker tournament

Posted by Gerry Poltorak on Nov 24, 2010 Posted in Poker Player News | No Comments »

20 year-old poker pro Harrison Gimbel was able to outlast some 300 other entrants to win the largest tournament in Florida history. Gimbel won the World Poker Tour/Fall Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, worth an impressive $333,000 –the largest payout in Florida poker history.

Gimbel, who is a familiar name to poker fans thanks to his win at the PokerStars PCA Championship in January where he booked a $2.2 million win at the age of 19, is a rising star in the poker world, and has amazingly won two major tournaments before his 21st birthday! Take that Annette Obrestad!

Florida, and the Caribbean, allows players to participate in casino games at the age of 18; unlike most locales in the United States that stipulate a player must be 21 to enter a casino. Unfortunately for Gimbel he will miss out on next year’s World Series of Poker in Las Vegas since he doesn’t turn 21 until October.

Here is a look at some of the other accomplishments of Harrison Gimbel:

·    In June 2009 he captured the $800 buy-in Florida Poker Championship worth $67,860
·    In January 2010 he not only won the PCA Championship worth $2.2 million but also managed to take down a super-satellite to the event worth a further $10,300.
·    Gimbel also placed 39th at the 2010 EPT San Remo Championship, worth $29,890

For his career Gimbel has won over $2.6 million in live tournaments, not bad for a 20 year-old!
