Jim “Pocket Bullets” Paris
So here we are a few days into the 2019 50th Annual World Series of Poker and the first bracelet has already been picked up!
Brian Green, who has been playing poker since 1984, topped a field of 204 runners to win Event #2: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Super Turbo Bounty for $345,669 and his first gold bracelet.
This win came only three months after he relocated from Texas to Las Vegas. After spending some 100 days per year for at least the last 20 years coming to Vegas, he finally made the jump and moved to Vegas and as he stated, he now enjoys a home court advantage.
Green had more than $3 million in lifetime earnings prior to this victory. Including last September, when he finished runner-up to David Peters in the 2018 Poker Masters Event #1: $10,000 NLH for $138,000, he also took home $1,117,923 for finishing fifth in the 2016 $111,111 High Roller for One Drop.
