Jeffrey Farnes is an American poker player. In 2022, he made it to the final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event.

Jeffrey Farnes is more used to competing in low-to-mid-stakes tournaments judging by his Hendon Mob profile. His first live cash came in August 2017 when he won over $9,200 in a $1,650 Ante Up Poker Tour event in Lincoln. Farnes followed that deep run wth a second-place finish in a $1,100 WPTDeepStacks event in Reno, which came with a $39,735 score. That prize remained his largest ever until a seventh-place finish in the $2,500 MGM Grand Summer Series Grand Stack event in July 2022, earned him $61,250. Indeed, he has now blown that career-best out of the water because he is guaranteed $675,000 right now and is only nine eliminations away from a $10,000,000 score.

Farnes first cashed at the WSOP in 2019 when he reached the money place in both the Big 50 and the Main Event. Further cashes in the COLOSSUS and Mini Main Event in 2021 were followed by an in-the-money finish in The Housewarming and Mini Main Event this summer.

Now that he has reached the final table, Farnes will be well-supported by An army of friends and family.

"I've got a huge rail coming. I got on the horn layer, I kind of wanted to make sure I reached the final table before I got everybody here. I've got some of my best friends here already. It got loud here yesterday but I have enough people coming that we can compete!"

Farnes started his poker career in 2004, playing $3/$6 Limit Hold'em, which were the only games running where he was back then. He then transitioned to $1/$3 No-Limit Hold'em and progressed from there. Farnes drew inspiration from Daniel Negreanu, particularly his hand reading ability, something that he has incorporated into his own game.
