Poker is highly electrifying, especially for those players who venture into profound global tournaments where a sizeable prize is potentially offered. However, it is almost fortuitous that you leave the casino with a coveted title and a sizeable prize.
Australian players have morphed into global heroes who take down final tables at the top-notch events; one of these trailblazing poker enthusiasts is Mel Judah. He has played vibrantly locally and at global platforms where he has had impeccable performance. Mel boasts an array of titles on his belt while he has also shoveled in plethora sums into his wallet. His tremendous play at the WSOP has earned him recognition at the international plane.
Mel clinched his first WSOP bracelet in 1989 in a USD 5,000 7 Card Stud tournament. He made a robust come-back at the 1997 WSOP that earned him a third position but took home $371,000. He amazingly won the 2003 WPT Legends of Poker championship raking in $579,375. He outlasted a tough table that was dominated by well-known poker players like Chip Jett, Farzad Bonyadi and Paul Philips. He sailed through to the final table of the Poker Millions in 2006 managing a 4th position. In 2009, he clinched the $1,100 Omaha High-Low Aussie Millions, Melbourne tournament. Mel plays to optimize his standpoint in the poker arenas, notwithstanding the many times he has been forced to cash at the WSOP; his tenacity is an insightful theme.
As of 2009, his overall live events winnings were beyond $3,100,000. Admittedly, his thirty-six cashes at the WSOP have amassed a whacking $1,299,630. Weighing his intermittent wins, one cannot deny this Australian has cemented his name at the global scale. If he incessantly keeps on trying his luck at the global poker events, he is inclined to clinch the ever-evasive bracelet in future.
