First the Ring then the bracelet

Las Vegas, NV (June 1, 2012) – “First the ring, then the bracelet.” The motto, effectively parroted the past few years on the World Series of Poker Circuit, encouraged poker players to compete in various events around the country, which are spread out over the nine months when the WSOP “big one” is dormant. The National Circuit is potential stair ladder to greater success for many poker players, who may not quite have the bankrolls or skills necessary to come and play with the best of the world, at the WSOP.
Nick Jivkov, a 34-year-old semi-pro poker player and business owner from Des Plaines, IL took the slogan literally. He cashed ten times in various WSOP Circuit events around the country during the last few years, ultimately winning a gold ring in 2010 at the IP in Biloxi. Until this year. Jivkov had yet to cash in any WSOP event in Las Vegas.
All that changed this evening when Jivkov not only final tabled the Pot-Limit Hold’em event, which took place at the Rio Las Vegas. He went on to win a dramatic victory, rubber stamping his arrival on the tournament poker scene as a champion. Jivkov collected $189,818 in prize money to go along with his first WSOP gold bracelet.
