SEABEAST Finishes 9th in $2,500 Six-Handed NLHE at WSOP
Posted at 21:33 2009-06-11
It has been a year since Jay ‘Seabeast’ Kinkade strolled into the Rio to go none from ten events . . . a year is a long time in poker!
Kinkade kicked off his 2009 WSOP campaign taking a seat in the Event 2 - $40,000 No Limit Holdem event, but didn’t fare too well. A few starts in the holdem events followed until Event 19 - $2,500 Six-handed No Limit Hold'em rolled round.
Along with 1,067 others, Kinkade sat down to battle some of the world’s toughest holdem players from the online whizz kids to the experienced professional. Battling through the day would see Kinkade and 134 returning on day two with Kinkade well placed with his 80,400 in chips. Once Kinkade got things going, he started to build a healthy stack to be second chip leader at one point while registering his first WSOP cash.
The day would end just short of the final table with Kinkade in the bottom half of the counts – but still with a great shot at making his first WSOP final table and taking home the gold. Day three would commence with Kinkade making the pay jump before his Ace-Queen would find no assistance against eventual fourth-placer Jesse Rios Cowboys.
Kinkade would not only register his first WSOP cash in 9th place for a tidy payday of US$39,376 but would also notch another result for an Aussie following Sam Khouiss and Jeff Lisandro earlier in the week.
With Kinkade now sitting on just under US$250,000 in tournament earnings, not to mention his online record, Kinkade will definitely be looking to notch up a few more results before the series concludes with the Event 57 - $10,000 Main Event.
