Jordan Hafty won his first tournament in the current WSOP 2018. He was better than the others in the tournament for casino employees with a buy-in of $ 565. In a grueling heads-up lasting almost 4 hours, he beat Jodie Sanders and got $ 61,909 in prize money.
After the tournament ended, Jordan could not control his emotions and he could hardly choose words to describe his feelings from the most significant victory in his life. His biggest winnings in offline tournaments was $ 1,900. Hufty says 95% of his poker is played online, 4% in live cash games, and maybe he finds time for 1% in live tournaments.
Jordan said: “I’ve thought about this every day for the last 15 years and for it to actually happen is just unbelievable.” He also thanked his friends who came with him to Las Vegas from Michigan.
