Orthodox Jewish Man Donates $204K To Charity After Winning World Series of Poker

Gershon Distenfeld, an Orthodox Jew from Bergenfield, New Jersey won the coveted First Bracelet and $204,063 for charity in the $1,500 Shootout Event on the final day of the 2021 World Series of Poker. Distenfeld’s final showdown lasted over three hours after getting to the table over 800 other players who entered.

After a back-and-forth battle with Johan Schumacher, Distenfeld came out as the winner and all of his proceeds will go to charity. Read more here.
