Many poker players are likely familiar with Sean Perry through his appearances on PokerGO’s “High Stakes Poker” and his active presence on the high-roller tournament scene.
According to The Hendon Mob, Perry earned his first tournament cash in March 2017 and has racked up an impressive $6 million in cashes since then.
Perry’s largest cash came just a month ago when he took down Event #8: $50,000 PokerGO Cup for $640,000 after defeating Brock Wilson during heads-up play. Days earlier, Perry took down Event #2: $10,000 NLH for $200,000 to make him the only player to win two events during the series.
Perry is the son of Ralph Perry, a high-stakes poker pro who himself has $3.4 million in live earnings. You may know the elder Perry as the guy who once called Antanas “Tony G” Guoga with king-jack in the 2006 Intercontinental Poker Championship only to get screamed at and told that his “career is finished.”
The younger Perry enters the final table eighth in chips with 1,700,000 and stated at the end of Day 5 that he “just want(ed) to bust and fly to Miami.” We’ll see if Perry can run up his stack or if he will indeed be Miami-bound.
