Young but Tough EPT Grand Final 2006 Million Winner Jeff Williams
Not much is known about this young talent from Georgia. He won second season of European Poker Tour in Monte Carlo. He did it in 2006, where he earned over $1,000,000. He was only 29, when he defeated other great players of the poker game. He was qualified at PokerStars for that tournament. His name for the tournament was yellowsub86.
At his interview to the CardPlayer he said he had got his degree in history, while other sources claim his major was political science. Once he won the EPT, he became one million dollar richer guy and he had a desire to quit college, but his parents were convincing and persuaded him to stay at school.
For now his plan is to continue being a professional poker player. And then he just wants to see what will happen. He says that he is really lucky, as all the winnings would not take place in his life, if not luck. Well, what can I say? It is not only luck, it is also skills, so well developed skills.
He has got gambling spirit, as he likes to get all the chips from bad players and then continue enjoying a good game with good players.
He started playing while he was in high school. He worked in the fast food chain before his poker career started. After he realized that he won at the home games, he quit his job, deposited online and lost all the money he had. And only in college he began a march towards great winnings.
His total winning so far is climbing to $2,000,000.
