Brock Parker

Remember the name:  Brock Parker.  He's enjoying great success thus far at the 2009 World Series of Poker and those of us here at Gambling911.com are taking notice.   Parker's first win included a defeat of odds-on favorite to win the 2009 World Series of Poker main event, Daniel Negreanu.

From Ryan Lucchesi of CardPlayer.com:

On June 7, Brock Parker won his first gold bracelet in event No. 14 ($2,500 six-handed limit hold'em) at the World Series of Poker, along with $223,688 in prize money. The morning after his victory, Parker entered event No. 19 ($2,500 six-handed no-limit hold'em), and he survived day 1 on June 8. June 9 saw Parker roll into the money and make the final day, just one of 11 players remaining. On Wednesday, June 10, Parker pulled off the unthinkable and won his second gold bracelet in four days time. Parker took home $552,745 for his second WSOP victory and the respect of the poker world for his incredible consistency.

Brock Parker is a 27-year old poker player from Silver Spring, Maryland.   He has something in common with fellow poker player, David Williams. Parker played the card game Magic: The Gathering before turning to poker.

As of 2009, his total live tournament winnings exceed $1,188,000. His 13 cashes at the WSOP account for $1,040,950 of those winnings.
