Samuel Lee

31 March 2018 (Las Vegas) – Samuel Lee is the latest ring winner on the WSOP Circuit. He took first place for $13,860 in Event #10: $365 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed, besting a field of 165 players. It’s not only Lee’s first ring, it’s also his first career Circuit cash.

“I’m excited, but it doesn’t even feel real,” Lee said a few minutes after eliminating his final opponent. “I just came to play some tournaments. I didn’t expect first place. It’s crazy.”

Lee, a Seattle resident working in medical device sales, is an amateur player returning to poker after taking time away to focus on his career. “I used to play a lot with my buddies,” he explained. “Now we play a lot of home games. But I’ve been busy with work and took a lot of time off from poker. Now I just started again. I told my buddies, ‘This is going to be my year. I’m going to play as many tournaments as I can.’ So this is the start of it.”
