Jake Balsiger — Not Washed Up Forever

Former Octo-Niner back in the spotlight with Aussie Millions run.

Team 888’s Jake Balsiger needs to “respect himself in the morning.”

So, he made what sounds like a pretty sick hero call for all his chips, and was right. That call kept him in the Aussie Millions Main Event where he currently sits with 4th place chips at the final table of 7.

Of course, with his previous 3rd place 2012 WSOP finish, he tells PokerNews’ Kristy Arnett that the pressure is no big deal for Jake who was dealing with the likes of Scott Seiver and Sorel Mizzi en route to making the final table. With his current standing, he’s guaranteed no less than a 6-figure payday and he still has a very good shot at taking down $1.6 million AUD for 1st place ($1.4 million USD).
