Team PKR have been quick to make their mark at the WSOP after PKR pro James ‘James666’ Sudworth placed 7th in the WSOP $2,500 No Limit six-handed event to the tune of $54,777.
The newly appointed members of Team PKR, who feature in the WSOP preview in the June issue of Bluff Europe magazine, were on hand to cheer him on as he outlasted some tough competitors in Howard Lederer, Erick Lindgren, Andy Black, Erik Siedel, Mike Caro, and Bertrand Grospelier.“Going into the tournament Andrew Teng told me I had a good shot. The first table I sat at was unbelievably soft so I used a lot of aggression I learned from cash games to build up a nice stack early on. It gave me a lot of confidence and by midday yesterday it felt like I knew I was going to win it.” said James666. Unfortunately it was not to be for Sudworth, who bubbled just before the final table of the 6-handed event when his pair of threes failed to hold up when Joseph Serock paired his ace on the river. Nevertheless the 22 year old is fast gaining recognition on the poker circuit – and not just for his skills at the felt. His colourful appearance and jovial approach to the game was shown when he continued his tradition of buying a round of Jager bombs for everyone seated at his table!Sudworth, who adds this latest triumph to a second place finish in the GUKPT Brighton earlier this year, is a PKR regular and is renowned for his fearless aggression at the cash tables.
