Poker pro Jonathan Little triumphs in Biloxi

written by: Steve under News Comments: Comments Off

After winning two World Poker Tour (WPT) titles in 2007 and 2008, as well as the WPT Player of the Year award, Jonathan Little looked to be on the precipice of becoming one of the game’s all-time greats. Even though Little hasn’t struggled in poker tournaments since those big wins, he also hasn’t been able to replicate his early success.

2012 could very well be another big year for Little, considering he made a number of deep runs in tournaments in 2011 (unfortunately the cards didn’t turn his way) and he has already won his first tournament of 2012, a $1,000 buy-in tournament in Biloxi, Mississippi at the Million Dollar Heater tournament series that earned the poker pro a $30,000 payday according to his Twitter account.

Little, who recently released Part 1 of a two-part Tournament Poker Strategy Book, titled, Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, is the consummate professional in the poker world. Little will play any event, whether the buy-in is $500 or $25,000, and is consistently among the first players named when asked about top tournament pros.

With over $4.7 million in career tournament earnings according to thehendonmob.com’s database, Little has five consecutive years with at least six-figures in prize-money, as well as back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008 where he pocketed seven-figures.

In addition to his two WPT wins, Little also has two other WPT Final Table finishes (a runner-up finish and a 5th place showing) and overall he has an amazing seven Top 8 finishes on the WPT.
