Joseph Roh etched his name into poker history by clinching the top spot at the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #81: $600 Ultra Stack. His aggressive gameplay and risk-taking nature led to this impressive win, earning him the coveted gold bracelet and a handsome sum of $401,250.

Roh is a Californian, but his business ventures in the semiconductor industry in Texas keep him on the move. His company specializes in manufacturing special vacuums used in microchip production.

Despite starting the final table in the sixth position, Roh quickly moved up the ranks to seize the lead during the eight-handed play. After a brief dip due to a double payout to Peyton Ethridge, Roh bounced back, securing the seventh place by eliminating Min Sung Lee. He kept the momentum going, further dismissing William Fisher from the fifth place.

Roh faced stiff competition in a protracted three-handed battle against Denny Lee, who briefly held the chip lead. However, Roh regained the advantage by knocking out John Fagg in the third position. This allowed Roh to go into the final match with 247 million against Lee’s 186 million.

The final match witnessed Roh steadily gaining ground. In the concluding hand, Lee’s all-in reraise with A5 off suit was no match for Roh’s original raise with AQ off suit. With the board dealing cards not improving his hand that was already behind, Lee settled for the second place with $250,120, increasing his career earnings to over $665,000.

Following his victory, Roh shared with reporters, “This is something I’ve really wanted to do for a while. I don’t play that many tournaments … I mean, I play a little bit here and there but my dream is to be there.” His busy life doesn’t leave him much time for poker, but whenever possible, he indulges his love for the game.

The four-day tournament attracted a large crowd with 7,207 entries across two starting flights, resulting in a substantial prize pool of $3,675,570. Out of these, the top 1,060 participants all secured a min-cash worth $960.
