The October Nine - Steve Gee

28 July 2012

Steve Gee was born in China 56 years ago. However, emigrated to the USA and currently lives in Sacramento (California). He’s a professional poker player since the 70’s, decade where he started to be a regular in local casinos to play draw lowball. During one season he was away from poker, working as software project manager. Still, in 2007 return to his poker activity, playing cash games at Commerce Casino and Bellagio, in Las Vegas.

His trajectory in the WSOP is very wide. Together with Greg Merson he is the only October Nine that won a WSOP bracelet on his career. Gee managed to cash for the first time in the WSOP 2009: HE cashed 2.921$ in Event 4, a No-Limit Hold'em tournament, with 1.000$ buy-in. In 2010, his performance was great. Started with a ITM in Event 11, then another prize in a No-Limit Hold’em Event, of 1.500$ buy-in; he was eliminated in 201.º and cashed in 3.114$. Then, won Event 13: 1.000$ No-Limit Hold'em, and finally took home, besides the beloved bracelet, a staggering 472.479$ prize. Gee kept playing more Events and cashed again in 2010: 2.308$ in Event 24: 1.000$ No-Limit Hold'em. In 2011 didn’t do any ITM, until he played the Main Event.

Gee comes to the final table with fifth bigger stack. Still, he’s the veteran at the table, maybe the acquired experience will be his edge against his October-Nine opponents.
