JASON SOMERVILLE

poker player, UFC enthusiast, gamer, and aspiring caster.

Once upon a time, I won a few "tournaments on the internet." In what would forever be remarked upon as my crowning glory, I finished 2nd in the first annual SomethingAwful.com Peggle tournament, losing to my archnemesis, the one and only Jake Balsiger. I have managed to execute a 1st-2nd-3rd-4th-5th rundown of finishes at the World Series of Poker, a record substantially less impressive than my 26 year streak of consecutive sessions eating plain food and drinking water. I once had the great honor of playing 'Night Lies' and 'Hungry Like the Wolf' with PumpyTudors.


In the slightly paraphrased yet still somehow unforgettable words of Leo Wolpert, "I used to think I was a college student with a gambling problem, until one day, I realized I was a gambler with a college problem." I left school to follow my desire to play poker professionally seven years ago. In that time, I've been lucky enough to meet some awesome people and to have many great experiences while pursuing my poker dreams. I'm excited to be sharing future adventures with all of you.
