When last we checked in with poker pro Adam Hendrix of Anchorage, about a month ago, he had just cashed in big.
Hendrix pocketed his seventh career victory, winning $172,000 for taking down the PokerGo Tour Pot Limit Omaha Progressive Bounty tournament in Las Vegas and supplementing that by winning $152,000 in bounties for a tidy $324,000 payday.
Turns out the rest of his week didn’t go so badly, either.
Hendrix’s victory started a run of five tournament cashes in the span of a week. He racked a second-place finish, a fifth and two 10th-place finishes to bag an additional $253,350 and bring his winnings for the week to $577,350.
His runner-up finish in the $10K PLO High Roller event in Las Vegas earned Hendrix $127,300. The next day he took 10th at a PokerGo Tour PLO tournament for $25,800. The day after that – fifth in the PokerGo Tour PLO High-Low for $44,000. And the day after that 10th in a $25K Poker Go PLO Championship to rake $56,250.
Hendrix’s big Rocktober week pushed his 2023 live winnings – poker pros often play online events, as well – to a career-best $1,641,809, according to thehendonmob.com, a poker database. Hendrix, 31, cashed in frequently in the mid-year World Series of Poker, where he won a combined $714K and finished 70th in earnings at the latest installment of the game’s most lucrative tournament, which featured more than 100 events over a span of nearly two months.
Hendrix checks in at $5,530,556 in career earnings, according to the database.
Hendrix, who checked out of his job as a software engineer to turn pro full-time in 2017, currently sits 14th in the Global Poker Index Rankings.
His latest run gives him 15 Top-10 tournament finishes in 2023.
