Where Are They Now: Poker Author, Mathematician & Bracelet Winner Jerrod Ankenman

Nível 17 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante
Jerrod Ankenman
Jerrod Ankenman

Back in the late 2000’s, long before solvers were a thing, a group of math-focused individuals changed the face of poker. Players like Matt Hawrilenko, Bill Chen, and Jerrod Ankenman introduced a more math-based approach to poker; in fact, Chen and Ankenman even wrote a book titled The Mathematics of Poker.

Between 2006-09, the triumvirate won five World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets between them and seemingly set the wheels in motion for the game to evolve into today’s “solver era.” Like many others before them, all three moved away from the game over the next decade, with Hawrilenko temporarily coming out of “retirement” back in the 2015 WSOP.

Similarly, Ankenman made a rare appearance at the Rio when he was spotted in Event #44: $3,000 6-Handed Limit Hold’em. The 2009 WSOP Event #42: $2,500 8-Game Mix bracelet winner has an impressive limit hold’em résumé that includes a pair of runner-up finishes in WSOP event. Back in 2006, he took second to Ian Johns in Event #23: $3,000 Limit Hold’em for $150,586 and two years later finished runner-up to Rob Hollink in Event #30: $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship.

No-Limit Hold'em

Brandon Shack-Harris raised pre-flop before his opponent put him all in. Shack-Harris had 100,000 left and went into the tank.

"F*** it," Shack-Harris eventually said after about two minutes, pushing his remaining stack into the middle.

Brandon Shack-Harris: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Opponent: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Shack-Harris came out on the right side of the coin flip when the board ran out {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{9-Spades}, giving him two pair, aces and jacks, to double-up about eight spots off the money bubble.

Norton Folds Aces Pre-Flop to Coghlan

Nível 15 : 2,500/5,000, 5,000 ante

Pot-Limit Omaha

A player in middle position was all in for a short-stack when David Coghlan raised to 150,000. Corey Norton went into the tank for several minutes before folding {a-}{a-}{x-}{x-} face-up.

"I didn't want to play that for 150," Norton said.

Coghlan showed {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and the all-in player had {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{q-Spades}{4-Clubs}. The board ran out {4-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades} and the pocket kings split the pot.

"Aces would've won," Norton said as he saw a potential chip-leading pot go in another direction.
