Rajen Mahadevappa (Edison, NJ)
Rajen has been playing tournament poker for 90 days. In that time he's finished in 6th Place (his best) three times. He was frustrated because he wanted to do better than 6th but happy to be making money after playing poker for such a short time.
He met a friend from Mass. named Jaimie who has been giving him pointers and support from the rail.
Rajen also pocketed 14 $100 bouties and hit quad tens when there were two tables left.
His exit hand was K-J vs. 10-J. A ten hit the board and sent Raj home with his a nice payday of $13,215. He'll be back next week to play some more similar tournaments.
