The young poker pro is on a roll as he collects another big win on the year
The $2021 Venetian $25,000 no-limit Hold‘em High Roller has already crowned a champion and it looks like Sean Perry’s hot streak this year is being increasingly reflected. So far in 2021, Perry has reached a total of nine final tables, this time taking home the title of champion for the second time. As part of the PokerGO Tour’s inaugural season celebration, this event was one of three high-stakes tournaments held at The Venetian Poker Room over Memorial Day weekend.
At just 23 years of age, this professional poker player has shown that age really doesn’t affect his ability to excel and that his skills were more than enough to overcome a field of 43 entries in this latest tournament. After being crowned champion, Perry took home the sum of $365,500. Because of this, he has cashed a total of $1,693,618 in live tournaments during 2021, undoubtedly a different year that should go down in history, even though it is only halfway through. Overall, during his entire career, Perry has managed to earn a total of $2.6 million, and this year alone he has earned more than half of that to contribute to his professional earnings.
Because of Perry’s recent hot streak, he has now earned a strong position in the Card Player of the Year race. With the latest 420 points added to his yearly total, Perry now finds himself in fourth place in the overall standings race, something that even big names have not achieved so far in 2021. The poker community has been amazed by Perry’s skill at the table, and there is no doubt that they look forward to seeing him in action in the near future.
