2021 WSOP Main Event Final Table Profile: Jack Oliver

World Series of Poker

Oliver’s first WSOP cash came at the 2018 series, doing so in the $1,500 Millionaire Maker event. He won a $4,700 package online that granted travel expenses and a Millionaire Maker entry. Oliver navigated his way to a 359th place finish worth $4,518. The Brit’s second WSOP in-the-money finish came at this year’s WSOP. Oliver finished 322nd in the $1,500 Monster Stack for $3,005.

Thanks to his third-place finish in the 2021 Main Event, Oliver is now a multi-millionaire, picking $3 million for his deep run.

Oliver started his quest for WSOP Main Event glory like a runaway train, bagging 205,800 chips on Day 1d, which were good enough for 29/1,933. His hot run continued on Day 2abd and Day 3, before losing a little momentum on the subsequent days.

Day 5, for example, saw Oliver drop from 1,878,000 chips to 1,565,000, which placed him 80th of the 96 surviving players. Day 6 was more profitable, in terms of accumulating chips, but he was still only 27/36.

Oliver kept his cool and went from 6,043,000 chips at the start of Day 7 to 30,400,000 by the close of play. Heading into the final table 5/9, Oliver outlasted 6 players to before being eliminated in third by 2021 Main Event runner up George Holmes. Oliver miraculously survived a three-way all in which took place in the latter stages of Day 8.

His J9 bested Koray Aldemir's pocket queens and fourth-place finisher Joshua Remitio's ace-jack. Oliver would go runner-runner to hit a flush for a huge triple-up that left Remitio with a short stack. Oliver would then put the final nail in Remitio's coffin, his ace-deuce held as the board ran out blanks for Remitio's J7.

Oliver's Main Event journey came to an end after he jammed for 35,700,000 in the small blind and Holmes in the big blind asked for a count. After one minute and 11 seconds of consideration, Holmes made the call.

His A8 was still ahead on the 875 flop but Holmes turned a better pair on the J turn. The 9 river wasn't one of his five outs and Oliver sent to the rail.
