Despite playing professional poker for several years, Joe Reddick won his tournament in the last week of January 2016. Though he registered his first tournament cash in 2009, Reddick had to wait for almost six years to break the jinx.
Reddick won Borgata Winter Poker Open $1 Million Deep Stack to achieve a definitive career milestone by beating a field of 3,270 players.
Reddick won $217,792 for his efforts, which propelled his career earnings to $590,282.
A prize pool of $1,307,200 was created at Event #10: $450 NL $1 Million Deep Stack of the Borgata Winter Poker Open, with 300 places being paid.
