Jake Cody Wins WPT London Main Event; Justin Smith Wins High Rollers

Nothing about this picture of Jake Cody feels like he won a WPT title, does it?

Time to ease back into poker news reporting after a nice long Labor Day weekend. On a side note, we’ll be a little light on posts this week as we prep for our Girls on the Rail Hall of Fame voting (yes, voting really is going to start this week), something that requires way more effort than you’d think.

Anyway…

It’s been a big year for 21 year-old Jake Cody.

Back in January, the Brit won the EPT Deauville, clearing over $1.2M. Nine months later, Cody takes down his first World Poker Tour title, winning the WPT London for $425,492.

And in related news, Justin “BoostedJ” Smith won the WPT High Rollers event, defeating Tony G heads-up. Smith banks $219,131 for the win. G takes home $131,479 for second, and Freddy Deeb banked $87,653 for third.

Get full recaps sort of from the PartyPoker blog–a reporting site which might solely exist to make you appreciate just how good the WPT reporting live update site is–here.

    “the PartyPoker blog–a reporting site which might solely exist to make you appreciate just how good the WPT reporting live update site is–here.”

    +1 I gave up following the tourney b/c the coverage was so sporadic, hard to follow, and in need of a bit of editing.
