Jack Ury passes away at age 97

Posted on 10 February 2011 by "T".

A legend and world record holder has left us. Last Thursday, Jack Ury , WSOP's oldest participant, passed away at the age of 97 in his home in Terra Haute, Indiana. Jack Ury took part in last year's WSOP at the age of 97 and, once again, he became the oldest participant at the World Series of Poker.

Jack Ury's most memorable moment, if you ask me, was at the 2009 WSOP Main Event in a hand against Stephen Friedlander. The flop came 7[s]6[d]6[c]. Ury bet 1,000 and Friendlander went all-in. Ury called and Friedlander flipped over 7[h]6[h] for a full house. At that point, everyone thought that Ury's tournament was about to end. 

Ury waited a while before turning over his cards, telling Friedlander, "You're in trouble", before showing his 7[d]7[c] for a better full house.

Jack Ury will be missed and remembered by many! Rest in peace!
