The New York player, Jerry Wong, is known worldwide in online poker as “hummylun.” A nickname that has taken several bad passes in the River at decisive moments.
In 2012, Wong almost reached the final table of the Main Event in the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), however, a trio of six against his pair of aces left him in the gut prematurely.
Fernando Pons, the Moneymaker
The Spaniard Fernando Pons already knows what it is to suffer in the 2016 WSOP. In fact, a bluff on one of the Main Event days is one of the plays he remembers with a lot of joy.
“It took me two or three minutes to decide to pay. I bluffed it almost from the beginning, but when you are about to pay you will come to the whole tournament, the amount of money there is if you put up with it. In the end, I decided to trust and it went well, “he said.
However, that was not the only joy of the Spanish, besides seeing -in situ- the best hand of the tournament between Griffin Benger and William Kassouf. American Dan Colman also had to suffer the Spaniard, in one hand we analyze a few days ago in PokerListings in Spanish.
Pons may be the first Spaniard to get the world champion bracelet since Carlos Mortensen did it in 2001. If so, we will be here to tell you about it.
