What can we tell you about Larry Wright?
Well, we can tell you the WSOP bracelet winner, who won the 2012 WSOP Event #30: 2-7 $1,500 No-Limit Draw Lowball for $101,975, hails from McQueeney, Texas and is a World Champion water skier. He also raises white tail deer, donates a large portion of his poker winnings to a charity in South Sudan, and is on the Board of Directors of the Texas Card Player Association.
It's clear that Wright, who is married with two daughters, is quite the character. As fate would have it, Wright is competing here in the Day 2a field in search of his second gold bracelet. Wright has been holding steady most of the day, but we were able to catch him in a recent hand.
In it, the player in the cutoff limped and Wright opted to raise to 2,500 from the button. The blinds both folded, the cutoff called the additional 1,700, and it was heads-up action to the flop, which they both checked. When the dealer burned and turned the , the cutoff checked and folded to a bet of 5,500 from Wright.
Not much of a hand, but hopefully it'll pacify all of you Larry Wright fans out there.
