Posted on 25 June 2019 by "T".

Jeopardy! Champion James Holzhauer has made his WSOP debut this Monday in Las Vegas.

A pro sports gambler for over a decade, Holzhauer played in two events at the Rio Convention Center:
Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit-Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty
Event #57: $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold'em (with Mike Sexton as his partner)

Both events were scheduled on June 24, Monday.

Holzhauer said, "I decided to enter because [Poker Hall of Famer] Mike Sexton contacted me and offered to sponsor my buy-ins. I don't have any plans to enter another WSOP event beyond those two. I played online poker semi-professionally in the early 2000s, but I don't intend to make a career of it now, as I'm sure I wouldn't be good enough at it to justify forgoing other opportunities."
