Jake Cody is easily one of the brightest young superstars in the game today. At 23 years old, he's already earned a World Series of Poker gold bracelet, an EPT Main Event title and a WPT Main Event win. Those three victories have allowed him to earn poker's elusive Triple Crown.
Cody's WSOP bracelet win came earlier this year in Las Vegas. He won the $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em Heads-Up Championship for a whopping $851,192 after defeating Yevgeniy Timoshenko in the final match. Even with such a massive first-place prize in that event, it's not anywhere close to the largest score of his career. In January 2010, Cody win the EPT Deauville Main Event here in France for €857,000. His other major win came at the 2010 WPT London for £273,783.
This event is Cody's fourth WSOP cash of the year, with his first three coming in Vegas. Outside of his big win, Cody cashed in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event and also in the $10,000 Main Event. His total lifetime earnings total well over $2.6 million.
