Mike Leah — Two Rings, One Day

Team Ivey Pro bags two WSOP Circuit Events in 24 hours.

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.
