Before this year’s Main Event, Sindelar’s 16 cashes amounted to $147,140. Now the pro from Nebraska is guaranteed nearly five times that amount with a shot at $10 million and the title of world champion.
It’s been a while since Sindelar’s last live victory at the poker table.
Sindelar graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2006 and then, in 2007, Sindelar won the $1,000 Fall Poker Classic for $105,312. Since then, Sindelar has only scored a few five-figure scores.
Prior to the Main Event Sindelar had three WSOP cashes this year with two 99th-place finishes and one 65th-place finish. Those earnings amounted to $9,279.
Sindelar has been playing professionally for the last decade and has a ton of experience in cash games and tournaments both online and live.
Online Sindelar plays under the screen-names dsindy and sindy2 and has played as high as $50/$100 against the game's top players.
Sindelar’s big WSOP breakthrough came a few days ago when he jumped into the top 10 counts in Day 5. Since then Sindelar has stayed near the top of the leaderboard and made his first WSOP final table in the world’s largest event.
Sindelar will start the November Nine 5th in chips with 21,200,000.
