Jordan Hufty

Jordan Hufty was overwhelmed just moments after winning Event # 1: $ 565 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold’em for $ 61,909. Hufty defeated Jodie Sanders in a grueling heads-up match that lasted nearly four hours.

After hugging his friends on the rail, Hufty took a moment for himself, wiping a few tears from his eyes. When asked what it feels like to win a World Series of Poker Bracelet, Hufty searched for the right words.

“I’ve been thinking about it every day for the past 15 years and it’s just unbelievable.”

The Aria Poker dealer and Floorman thanked his close friends for his success. “I moved to Las Vegas with these two guys from Michigan and none of them would be possible without them.”

A total of 556 players attended the launch of Event # 1, the $ 565 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold’em tournament. Players included Mike Majerus, Chad Holloway, Jon Friedberg, defending champion Bryan Hollis and WSOP social media phenomenon Kevin Mathers
