WSOP Crowns Its First Gladiator

WSOP Crowns Its First Gladiator

The World Series of Poker is currently underway. The summer brings hot temperatures that get hotter with each poker event. The Gladiators event recently took place, and one managed to snatch that title and walk away with a big prize.

Jason Simon, a St. Lois player, was among the 23,088 contestants that applied for the event, and the only one to reach the top. In old times, gladiators fought for their freedom, but in this Gladiators event, he won his first poker bracelet and a fantastic prize of $499,852.

The Gladiator Fought Against 23,088 Contestants, and Won

Any poker fan will tell you that the World Series of Poker is one of the most popular poker tournaments. It comes with several events. Recently, the first two golden bracelets were awarded to a casino employee and a high roller player. Both Peter Thai and Alexandre Vuilleumier showed skill in their respective events which is why they walk away with such big prizes.

Jason Simon joins the winning team, as he’s the winner of the Gladiators event, making him a top-tier Gladiator. This is the first time he’s won a poker bracelet. His skills also brought him a substantial prize of $499,852.

What makes his win most impressive is the fact that he was the best player out of 23,088 contestants. The Gladiators event was designed for those poker enthusiasts that like to make it big in poker, but don’t have as big bankrolls as high-rollers. The top players of this event would then go on to fulfill their dreams.

The second Gladiator of this event is Eric Trexler who got a prize of $301,097. He is followed by Wesley Cannon, who managed to win an impressive $210,024. Another player worth mentioning is Bohdan Slyvinskyi, who happened to be the only player with the final table experience. Unfortunately, he ended in sixth place, which wasn’t that different from his first time at a final table. As the Word Series of Poker continues, we’ll see more skilled players playing against each other, and the most skilled getting their prizes and bracelets.

Conclusion

Jason Simon is the first Gladiator of the World Series of Poker event. He played his cards right and won his first bracelet as well as a gladiator’s prize of $499,852. The Gladiators event hosted 23,0888 contestants and Jason managed to snag the first place.
