….Bored Banker Wins Big At WSOPE

 

A bored CITI Bank employee, James Bord, decided it was time for a little bit of excitement in his monotonous life.

He recently took part in the 2010 World Series of Poker Europe and won the big $1.3 million prize. 

Prior to this he had won $247,000 at the High Roller event at the Marrakech Poker Cup in Morocco.

In just two weeks, Bord has won more money than it would take to earn in five years working at CITI.

"I never thought I would win a bracelet," the 29-year-old Bord said. "Being so close, you just never know when it's going to come again. And it's even more special to win it in my hometown. It's just something very special." – Ace King reporting.
