Jude Ainsworth Profile

Pokerjolt columnist and all-round top geezer Jude Ainsworth has won more than a million dollars in his career.

After being awarded a Phd in Biochemistry in 2008, Jude took a break to focus on poker and has been playing professionally ever since.

He has cashed at events around the world, including a 3rd place finish at the 2009 Euro Finals of Poker in Paris, winning $65,431.

He also cashed at the 2009 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, scoring a top-100 finish in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em event.

The biggest live cash of his career so far came at the prestigious Irish Poker Championships, held in his home town of Galway. Jude played in the €2,000 Main Event and won, beating a field of 298 other players to take away prize money of $212,479.

It’s online however where Jude has performed best. The Pokerstars pro has a phenomenal record in big events. He won $39,552 in February 2008 for a 3rd place finish in the Super Tuesday event, followed later in the year with a 3rd place finish in the Sunday Million, good for another $91,419.

April 2009 saw him earn his biggest payday yet when he won the high stakes Main Event of the PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) - a huge victory worth $963,338.

He also scored other big cashes in the same year, including a win in the Daily Eighty Grand for $17,269.
