Prior to the start of the $100,000 Super High Roller, the registration list was a laundry list of well-known professionals sprinkled with a few experienced amateurs — with the exception of Greg Jensen. Here was a man that no one in the poker community had heard of. After a little digging, it was revealed that Jensen was a hedge fund manager and the co-CEO and co-CIO for Bridgewater Associates, a firm based in Westport, Connecticut with assets totaling $122 billion.
What's more, Jensen entered the tournament on whim after a colleague of his had gifted him a seat into the $10,000 PCA Main Event. Jensen decided to take a shot in the Super High Roller, and incredibly, he has made it all the way to the final table.
