Poker pro John Juanda having big 2010 WSOP

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jun 13, 2010 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

With four World Series of Poker bracelets, 53 cashes, and over $3.75 million in career WSOP earnings John Juanda has set the bar pretty high for what constitutes a big WSOP. Well, with three final tables thus far, all in Championship Events, and over $600k in winnings I’d say that qualifies.

Juanda’s first final table came in the $50k Players Championship where he finished 4th, pocketing $436,835. His second final table came in the $10k Seven Card Stud hi/lo World Championship finishing 5th. His latest final table was in the $10k No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball World Championship where he once again finished in 4th place.

Juanda’s showing has him in 2nd place on the Player of the Year leader-board, trailing David Baker –who also has three final tables in 2010, including a win in the 2-7 Championship.

It’s amazing when you look at Juanda’s consistency at the World Series of Poker over the years: In 2009, Juanda had four cashes and four final tables! In 2008 Juanda had five cashes and two final tables –not to mention he won the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event. In 2007 Juanda had an off-year, cashing five times and only appearing at one final table.
