NEWS FLASH   Jeff Tebben Wins WSOP Gold Bracelet in Event 24

Missouri Amateur Inspired by Grant Hinkle’s 2009 Victory – Wins His Own Gold Bracelet in 2010


Jeff Tebben was the winner of the $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em championship at the 2010 World Series of Poker.  This marked Tebben’s first career WSOP gold bracelet victory.  His triumph was inspired by close friend Grant Hinkle, who won a victory at last year’s WSOP.  Hinkle, who plays in Tebben’s home poker game in suburban Kansas City, encouraged his friend to come to Las Vegas and enter a few events at this year’s series.  The venture paid off handsomely, to the tune of $503,389 for first place.

Tebben is a 39-year-old married father of two children.  He sells medical supplies in and around the Kansas City area.  Prior to this tournament, Tebben had one lone cash at a WSOP Circuit, which paid $882 at Horseshoe Council Bluffs (Iowa).

The third $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournament on this year’s schedule drew another huge field, as there were 3,289 entries.  Every weekend three huge No-Limit Hold’em events are played.  Most Fridays include a $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em tournament.  A $1,000 buy-in event takes place on Saturday and Sunday (two flights/starting days).  Each Monday includes another $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event.  All Day One starting times are noon.

The previous $1,000 buy-in events were won by Aadam Daya, from Toronto, Ontario (Event #3) and Steve Gee, from Sacramento, CA (Event #13).

A full report of this event will be posted shortly.
