American Player Won Two WSOPC Main Events in 49 Days

Michael Persky with his wife on WSOP Circuit

The name of the American player Michael Persky will be associated with the word "upswing" for a long time. The resident of Northern California was able to complete two victories in the Main Events of the WSOP Circuit series with an interval of just 49 days.

Persky won his first ring on August 21st of this year at Graton Casino's WSOP Circuit series, besting a field of 616 entries in Main tournament for a first-place prize of $175,595. Just 49 days later, the lucky man claimed his second trophy, this time in the WSOPC Thunder Valley Casino Series ME. This time the winnings were $170,780.

"It's unbelievable, but I have to go home, my wife, children, dogs and my business are waiting for me. I haven't missed a day of work while I've been on the series,” Persky said after the latest win.

The man who managed to win two WSOPC Main tournaments owns a small business in California. Prior to these high-profile wins, he had just six recorded live tournament cashes. And now his career total win stands at nearly $415,000.

Michael also shared the secret of his success. It is not tricky – self-discipline and the ability to fold.

"If you don't know how to throw cards into the muck, you will never win. In the first Main, I folded a lot of hands: like AJ twice from the button and pocket nines," says the champion.​

Well, the next time you really want to see what your opponent has, you should remember Persky and press the "Fold" button. Maybe this will help you win one of the big events.
