PearlJammer wins Bodog Poker $100k guaranteed
Fortune continued to smile on Jon "PearlJammer" Turner this year as he reeled in a win in the Bodog Poker $100k Guaranteed online poker tournament on Sunday.
The online poker pro walked away with a $25,000 payout for his first-place finish in an 887-entrant field.
He started the final table second in chips, but by the time PearlJammer made it to heads-up against Henge, he was the underdog by two-to-one.
Turner has plenty of online and offline poker experience to fall back on, though, and help dig him out of that hole.
With four cashes at the 2007 World Series of Poker, including a final-table finish in the $5,000 World Championship Mixed Hold'em event, he is no stranger to the pressure that comes from making it deep in tournaments.
He also has a 12th-place finish at the World Poker Tour Borgata event, and a third-place finish in a super satellite at the Borgata that resulted in more than $112,000 in winnings.
His online winnings this year are just as impressive so far.
At PokerStars.com, where he plays under the same online name, he won a nightly Hundred Grand tournament to collect $29,506 back in May.
He also has two significant wins at Full Tilt Poker, where he plays as PearlJammed. He won a $1,060 buy-in event at the poker site in February for $44,820, and a $150 buy-in $55,000 guarantee tournament July 2 for $14,813.
Combine all that experience, and it's no surprise that he came out on top of the Bodog Poker $100k Guaranteed tournament Sunday.
