Jason Young

Florida’s Jason Young owned the early stages of 2019 winning the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood Lucky Hearts Poker Open Main Event in January and finishing third at the WSOP Circuit Coconut Creek the next month. His solid play not only scored him a pile of loot, but anointed him Seminole Hard Rock Poker Player of the Year. As such, Young got a party that kicked off the Coconut Creek WSOP Circuit late last week

In addition to a good bash, Young earned entries in each of this year’s eligible Main Events/Championships and comp dollars good for use at each property now through August 2020.

A $1,700 entry in to today’s Main Event Day 1A marks his first redemption of the season and he looks for it to the set the tone for the rest of the year.
