Christmas has come once more this year, and while it is the norm that family members would give various gifts to each other, this one very thoughtful wife has given her husband a Christmas gift that he would definitely cherish for all time
Jeremy Hilsercop, an industrious family man who works at Wood Group in Nashville as a General Superintendent, received an awesome gift from his thoughtful wife Randi that involved a trip to his first-ever WSOP on Christmas morning: plane tickets to Las Vegas, hotel accommodations at the Rio, and a ticket to play in an event of the World Series of Poker.
For any serious or even for a recreational poker player, this present definitely beats other usual holiday gifts like clothes, shoes, toys or video games that most people usually receive.

If you thought that was the end of that, you'd say to Jeremy, "Good for him, he's got a wonderful Christmas gift." However, when Randi posted the video on social media, the poker community responded with even more enthusiasm and generosity to help give Jeremy the ultimate, first-time WSOP experience.
First off, WSOP sent a personal message to Jeremy, welcoming him to their upcoming golden summer event.
Many other companies immediately proposed offers for poker training products and poker coaching. There were some players who even asked to buy some of Jeremy's action, which could potentially help extend his summer trip with a few more tournaments.
That's not all, Joey Ingram made Jeremy's Christmas gift even better, calling out to PokerStars to give the first-timer a Platinum Pass, to which the giant poker company responded, "let's make this a Christmas to remember for Jeremy."
Thanks to the Platinum Pass, Hilsercop shall go to the Bahamas in January with $2,000 in travel expenses plus 6 nights' stay at Atlantis Resort, Nassau, in The Bahamas and $25,000 worth of entry tickets into the $8 million guaranteed inaugural PokerStars Players Championship at the yearly PCA.
Randi said her husband has been playing poker "since he was 12 but has never really had the chance to play in any big games or tournaments. He's been able to play in smaller cash games, mostly 1/2 and 2/5 making some pretty decent gains but his family always comes first. Every time we have some spare time and a babysitter, I will say ‘let's go,' and we are off to the nearest casino."
