The last time we saw Mike Leah he was prop betting Phil Ivey on who could sink a bucket from way downtown. Well, spoiler alert – he bested the best to win that bet.
Now, Leah is back but instead of lucksacking his way to a nice payday he used the poker skills that made him a Team Ivey Pro in the first place to make some mad money and earn some hardware.
This weekend Mike Leah amazingly won TWO World Series of Poker Circuit rings in a 24 hour period. From the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles, Leah entered and bulldozed Event #9, a $580 NLHE tourney, for just a shade under $17k.
Having destroyed the Event #9 final table in under 3 hours, Leah didn’t waste any time celebrating. He jumped into Event #10, quickly went busto, and then entered right into Event #11, a $365 NLHE Turbo.
No mystery on what happened next: Leah took that Turbo down for another $15.4k and his 2nd WSOP Circuit ring in under 24 hours.
With his back-to-*almost*-back victories Leah has the “Casino Champion” title on lock down and will be given a seat into the 2014 WSOP National Championship. For the full rundown on Mike Leah’s two ring circus, check out the WSOP Circuit Blog.
