Tim "Timmy2bet" Garles Looking to Compliment Ring Win w/ a Bracelet

Tim Garles

Last October at the World Series of Poker Circuit Horseshoe Southern Indiana in the Louisville area, more than a dozen gold ring events took place. In Event #9: $400 No-Limit Hold'em, 123 entries created a $40,590 prize pool. That was paid out to the top 19 players including Merton Toler (10th - $779), Nickolas Syrigos (14th - $673), Scott Weiss (16th - $601), and Kathalyn Holz (19th - $553).

Poker grinder Tim Garles from Des Moines, Iowa began day 2 as the chip leader and stayed there on his way to victory.

"I have been working really hard, my coach is Jeff Fielder," Garles said after his win. "I definitely have to thank him."

He added: "I am just going to keep playing tournaments."

All told, Agrles has $85,782 in lifetime live tournament earnings including second in the 2019 WSOPC Bicycle Casino $400 NLH Double Stack for $10,860 and third in the Horseshoe Council Bluffs Holiday Poker Classic for $9,944.

Garles, who hails from Iowa, just jumped into action today under the screen name "Timmy2bet" and is looking to compliment his ring win with a shiny gold bracelet. He was kind enough to share with us some shots from his AirBnB grind station.
