Sam Holden is a 22-year-old poker pro from Canterbury, England. The former student is making his World Series of Poker debut this year, and this marks his first WSOP cash. He has a few scores from the UK & Ireland Poker Tour, including a first-place finish in June in a No-Limit Hold'em six-handed event, though no previous cashes above four figures.
Holden will enter the final table as the shortest stack in the field, but he has a very care-free attitude about him that it shouldn't affect his style. PokerNews had Holden as a podcast guest a few weeks ago while at WSOP Europe. On the show, Holden discussed how he doesn't have the majority of himself in the event and knows the position he's in.
