Angela Jordinson may not have any WSOP bracelets and, hell, she doesn’t even have $100k in career poker winnings. But what Jordinson recently did is a feat that few pros would even consider possible: win three consecutive poker tournaments in three days.
Her incredible feat took place in the 2015 Spring Poker Round Up at the Wildhorse Resort & Casino in Pendleton, Oregon. And Jordinson kicked off the win streak by topping a 537-player field in an Event #1: $125 No-Limit Hold’em tournament ($10,828). The following day, on April 12th, she played in the Event #2: $225 No-Limit Hold’em tourney and beat out 447 players for the $18,348 top prize.
Could lightening strike a third time? It certainly did in the Event #3: No-Limit Shootout, which saw 214 players unsuccessfully try to stop Jordinson from scoring the $8,731 first-place payout. In all, she earned $37,907, but it almost feels like she should be getting an extra $1 million bonus for accomplishing such a rare feat.
“The last three tourneys have become a blur,” Jordison told PokerNews about her amazing 3-day run. “I have played more heads-up [poker] in the last three days than I ever have in my life. I had hands hold against big draws, suck outs, big lay downs, taken beats, and thrown some big bluffs. There were times that I had a difficult time in containing my aggression and my stack was up and down like a yo-yo.”
Jordinson would finally bust out of Event #4 and head home to Bend, Oregon. Far from a poker pro (she has about $85k in winnings), Jordinson is a bar owner and mother of two who’ll soon be sending her kids off to college. And judging from the pictures posted here, the only thing more amazing than her three straight tournament victories is that this young-looking lady is old enough to have college-aged kids.
Okay, moving past my weirdness, besides helping her kids attend the University of Oregeon, Jordinson also looks forward to playing some more poker. Specifically, she’s going to the 2015 WSOP in search of some gold bracelets. We’ve seen players win three bracelets in one WSOP, but could a certain woman win three straight?
