It has NOT been a good week for chasing elusive poker accomplishments.
First, Daniel Negreanu was denied the Triple CrownTM at the EPT Vienna. Then, Jason Mercier was denied the very same Triple Crown at the WPT Foxwoods World Poker Finals. Finally, Thomas Marchese was denied the Double TroubleTM (a NAPT and WPT title in the same year) at the aformentioned WPT Foxwoods World Poker Finals final table finals final.
Marchese led much of the way, but bowed out in third, banking $211,759. Taking the title was 22 year-old unknown Jeff Forrest. For the win, Forrest banks $548,752 and earns his first leg of poker’s elusive Triple Crown.
