Former Minister Zehr Scoops a Big One
A player in the lojack limped and Jerry Zehr raised to 1,200 from the hijack. Both players in the blinds called, as did the original limper.
The flop came and action checked to Zehr, who continued for 2,300. The player in the big blind and lojack called.
It was checked to Zehr again on the turn and he bet 3,100. This time, only the player in the lojack called.
The completed the board and both players checked. Zehr tabled and his opponent mucked — awarding the sizable pot to Zehr.
Zehr, a former minister, has been playing poker for over 20 years and hopes to shed the stigma associated with responsible gambling and Christianity.
"There is a stigma about poker that it's a sin," Zehr said. "I just don't think that's true. Jesus was about love and non-judgement."
Zehr is playing in his fourth WSOP Senior's Event and will be looking to make a deep run with his newly acquired chips.
