Jackson, who is from Jacksonville, Florida, already had a WSOP ring under his belt from winning the 2017 WSOP Circuit Event #3: $580 No-Limit Hold'em in North Carolina for a score of $39.938. He entered Day 2 of the tournament fourth in chips and reached the seven-handed final table in the same position.

Jackson played tight in the early stages of the final table and took down a big pot when he made two-pair with ace-king against his opponent's smaller two-pair. He later took the chip lead during three-handed play after doubling when his pocket fours held against the ace-queen of eventual runner-up Pora.
