St. Louis Park Man Knocked Out In Seventh Place In World Series Of Poker

Jason Senti, a St. Louis Park resident that was one of the “November Nine” to make it to the final table of the main event of the World Series of Poker, was knocked out of the tournament in seventh place.

Senti found himself all-in against Joe Cheong. Senti turned over an Ace of Diamonds and a King of Spades, while Cheong turned over two black 10s. Cheong started out with the lead prior to the flop.

However, that quickly changed when the flop came down with a King of Hearts, a King of Diamonds, and a Queen of Clubs. That gave Senti the lead going into the turn card. A Jack came down on the turn, giving Cheong a straight draw, but Senti still had an overwhelming advantage going into the river card.

Unfortunately, the river card was a 9, enabling Cheong to make his straight and knocking Senti out in seventh place of the World Series of Poker Main Event.

Senti was the short stack going into the final table, but he outlasted a couple of his competitors to finish in seventh place. For his efforts, Senti will take home $1,356,708.

Congratulations to Jason Senti on his remarkable accomplishment.
