Jermaine "Lion" Gerlin 1st Place $106,732


Jermaine "Lion" Gerlin wins the HPT Main Event at @DBKCandPR



Jermaine Gerlin played very solid for 3 straight days as we watched him throughout the tournament.
Gerlin says he was looking to avoid Scott Davies who finished 2nd, but when they went heads up he could avoid him no longer.

The heads up battle was intense lasting over 2 hours and spanning 5 blind levels. Davies started off with the chip lead and Gerlin fought to gain control then lost a big hand. Gerlin fought back from a 3-1 dog and picked up pair vs Pair to gain final control and led him to victory.

Gerlin says lots of hard work and dedication goes into poker and plans on buying a house for his family.

Lion had his daughter toys as card protectors through the tournament that he called LUCKY TOM.
