Jason Dennis ships the Bally’s Black Hawk Colorado Poker Championship
By Bob Garcia
$1,450 becomes almost $90,000 after three quick days of poker action
Being able to overcome a field of over 300 entries, Jason Dennis proved he had what it takes to be crowned the champion of the $1,450 Main Event of the Black Hawk Colorado Poker Championship (CPC) at Bally’s. As a result of his victory, the player was also able to take home the top prize of $89,534.
During the third day, it took the poker pro just 15 minutes to get up from the table and claim victory after a heads-up battle with Justin Liberto that lasted a little over two days. With a win like this, Dennis has more than doubled his previous lifetime earnings of nearly $73,000, in addition to achieving the highest score of his career overall, surpassing the $26,640 he took home when he became champion in the $2,000 CPC High Roller in March 2019.
After having a few good plays during the first few days, Dennis nearly fell short of making the final nine, entering with just five and a half big blinds, less than the amount all other opponents were still in contention. However, this was no excuse for the player to hang his head. Dennis warmed up at the most ideal moment, which made him rise to the top gradually. The poker pro was able to pick up the pace quickly as he began to go head to head with Liberto, who simply could not find a way to surpass the great performance Dennis was putting on.
While it’s true that the player hasn’t had such outstanding performances so far, this victory should serve as a great motivation for him to keep on giving his best to keep on winning big in upcoming poker events.
