Faraz Jaka Wins PokerStars Super Tuesday While At 2015 WSOPE

Faraz Jaka Wins PokerStars Super Tuesday While At 2015 WSOPEFaraz Jaka has one of the most enviable lifestyles of any young poker pro, and over the past year has visited 47 cities in 13 countries whilst plying his trade. At the moment, Jaka is in Berlin, Germany, taking part in the 2015 World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE), which is scheduled to run until October 24th at the Spielbank Casino.
The competition kicked-off on Thurdsay, 8th, and two days earlier the 30 year-old pro settled in at his new home for the next two-and-a-half weeks by entering PokerStars’ $1,050 buy-in Super Tuesday tournament. Things progressed well, too, and as the 30 year-old pro tweeted in the wee hours of the morning:
“Trying to close out this $1k on @Pokerstars @6am in Berlin while the birds are chirpin’ Looking good so far ;)”
Eventually, it would take Jaka around 12 hours to beat out his fellow 532 competitors to claim the event’s $101,080 first place prize, and in so doing give an early confidence boost to his 2015 WSOPE campaign. Amongst the notable pros also seeing a return on their buy-ins was Phillipe D’Auteuil in 22nd ($2,192), Michael Telker in 18th ($4,256), Sam Greenwood in 12th ($6,384), Johan van Til in 10th ($6,384), Nick Maimone in 6th ($22,610), and Joel Nordkvist in 4th ($41,496).
Three-handed, Faraz Jaka then had his proposed money deal rejected, which would have seen him receive $78,000, or $10,000 more than his ICM chip count would have warranted. Ultimately, that was fortuitous as jasocrime1 went out in 3rd ($54,530), and Granter7777 in 2nd ($74,480), leaving Jaka with an impressive $101,080 payday.
With his latest victory, Faraz “The-Toilet 0” Jaka now boasts an impressive $3,774,230 in online earnings, to go with the $4,963,116 in winnings earned in the live arena. Jaka has yet to win a WSOP bracelet, however, although he has reached WSOP final tables on a number of occasions. That may all change over the next few weeks, though.
