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 {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} 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 {j-Hearts}{7-Hearts}.

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 {a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} was still ahead on the {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop but Holmes turned a better pair on the {j-Clubs} turn. The {9-Hearts} river wasn't one of his five outs and Oliver sent to the rail.
