Tied for the record for most WSOP bracelets won all-time with Doyle Brunson and Phil Hellmuth. Won back-to-back WSOP Main Event Championships in 1987 and 1988 and barely missed winning a third straight, coming in second to a young Phil Hellmuth in 1989. His 1988 WSOP Main Event victory over poker legend Erik Seidel was immortalized in the poker movie Rounders. Known for bringing an orange to the table with him both for luck and because of the “pleasant scent.”
