With the day off from his full-time job due to the national holiday, Presidents Day, Harmeet Singh entered the final event of this series, the $250 Double Stack. It ended up being a Presidents Day to remember, as Singh not only final tabled the event with a friend, but Singh went on to win his first WSOP Circuit ring and $17,990.

“It’s the best feeling for any poker player,” said Singh after his victory, “and I really appreciate it.

When the final river card hit, the fifth-place finisher, Siddharth Siddharth, seemed even more excited for Singh than Singh was for himself. Singh introduced Siddharth to poker, and taught him a lot about the game.

“I introduced him to poker,” said Singh, who then began speaking about the person who helped guide him through the poker world. “My teacher has been my uncle, Raminder Singh, who has already won a WSOP Circuit ring. He is my mentor. He’s a teacher, a poker player, he’s my friend, he’s my parent, he’s my everything.” (Raminder Singh not only has a WSOP Circuit ring on his resume, but he is one of the winningest players in Seminole Hard Rock history with six trophies. )

The $17,990 that Singh won in this event was the second largest cash of his career, but if poker continues for him the same way that it has for his Uncle Raminder, then he has many more victories to look forward to.
