“I started a company and got over 100 people $15-million in revenue and this is still the biggest day of my life. Not only that, all my friends that I’ve played with, this is for all them too.”

He got close to winning a bracelet once before. He finished fifth in 2017 in the $3,000 6-Max. He entered today with $452,021 in tournament winnings, without ever booking an official tournament win.

“I haven’t won a tournament outright since maybe 2013 and it was a little bar tournament”

His story might have been a little different than he dreamed when he found himself under-the-gun with less than two big blinds. He was left short after an exposed card led to him getting pocket jacks. He lost a flip for almost all his chips and was left short with the big blind and the big blind ante looking him in the eye.

“I actually got jacks when someone hit the card as it was coming out, so instead of getting jack-three, I got jacks,” Gorsuch said.
