Among the players in New Jersey who qualified for the $3,500 buy-in, $1,000,000 GTD BetMGM Poker Championship at ARIA is Ryan Hagerty, a "Garden State" grinder with $378,438 in Hendon Mob-reported tournament earnings.
Hagerty earned more than his entire live earnings through a single online score when he finished fourth in the 2020 WSOP.com $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event for $387,130.
The next year, Hagerty won his maiden WSOP bracelet on WSOP.com by taking down Event #23: No Limit Hold'em Turbo for $67,207. It was not his first piece of WSOP hardware as just a month earlier he won a $350 buy-in event as part of the WSOP Summer Online Super Circuit for $22,925.
Hagerty's best live cash to date is $70,865 and he looks for a new career-high as he competes in the 2022 BetMGM Poker Championship after qualifying by playing on BetMGM Poker.
