For those unfamiliar of Pilgrim, the dude has grinded out more cashes in the past two years then just about anyone (and possibly everyone). He is a tournament cashing machine. If you put him in a tournament, he will fucking cash in it. Just watch. He’s like a black Phil Ivey.
Anyway, while Pilgrim crushes circuit events (including a win at Rincon last year), he doesn’t have many high-profile cashes. Until now!
Amazingly, the highest dollar amount Pilgrim has banked among his 36 cashes is $125k for his aforementioned WSOP-C Rincon win last year. So he’s already locked into his biggest all-time cash with this WPT Borgata Poker Open final table (sixth pays out $148k).
In the above interview with Matt Savage, Pilgrim sounds more football player than poker player, and drops the gem that he plans on playing “brazilian Gracie jiu-jistsu” level good on TV today.
Pilgrim enters the final table stacked fourth overall with 4,800,000. Ofir Mor leads everyone with 7,300,000. Get full chip counts here.
