During the opening event of the WSOP circuit stop at Palm Beach, November Niner, one Josh Beckley won a gold ring. Having attained the all deserved accolade of reaching the 2015 World Series of Poker November Nine back in the month of July 2015, Josh Beckley was ecstatic about this latest achievement. He talked like he was really geared at achieving a lot in the near future through poker and generally gambling in essence.
One thing about Josh Beckley that strikes many journalists and people that he interacts with more often is that he is soft-spoken. The man who hails from Marlton, New Jersey however argues that he tries as much as possible to let his play do the talking since that is what he draws most of his pride from. Just recently in Florida, the messages were on the wall. When Beckley became the winner during the opening gold ring event at the Palm Beach Kennel club stop, everyone knew that he had something special with regards to gambling.
Currently residing in the Sunshine State of West Palm Beach, Beckley initially entered the first $365 buy-in Monster Stack event and as a result became part of the 317-entry field which had generated a much revered $95100 prize pool. Of that amount, $22349 was actually to be awarded to the eventual winner of the tournament in essence. Those who keep tabs with the latest poker news can clearly understand why these types of events are so much favored among residents in Palm Beach county and other parts of the world. Once all was said and done, Beckley ended up emerging as the last man standing in order to earn the top prize and be able to score his first ever piece of WSOP jewelry. He led quite some notable names in the game such as Adam Ruen, Joshua Sperko, Bobby Hodson, Jonah Miller, Steven Sanzone and a number of others.
As much as the amount of money winnings he is getting have paled compared to the $1001020 he had already locked up by attaining or reaching the WSOP Main event finals table, Beckley clearly understands that success and confidence go hand in hand in the field of poker play. These are some of the main elements that will serve in moving the player towards the right direction so that he can attain even more success in future.
This recent achievement is with no doubt an ego boost for Beckley. He told the sports officials at WSOP that this win helps to make him even more confident when playing the game. It also sends a strong message to the other November Niners in the game that he has got all it takes to be able to win a tournament of this magnitude and therefore he is not the sort of a person that can simply be overlooked.
Indeed, the other members taking part in the WSOP main event have all reason to be wary of what Beckley can do. This is because, unlike the others, he was part of the first group that won the tournament in the interim. This implies that if the tournament goes on, they might end up achieving a lot more in the process. However, much as this is the case, Neil Blumenfield’s $25000 score from a deserved 29th place finish is notably the biggest cash win result that any November niner has been able to gain since the month of July.
The WSOP argues that Beckley started day 2 of the main event with a chip lead and the 17 players that were remaining. Rarely wavering, he was to land himself in the revered heads-up play against one Aric Pluskat with quite a significant chip lead. This is when Beckley won the round by winning all that was up for grabs. In order to keep on winning, Beckley has to come up with the most effective final table strategy for success. The money is different and people are also playing differently at that stage of the game and therefore Beckley needs to get his best foot forward.
