WASSUP '08: Jimmy Shultz Takes A Bracelet And Gives Back To Community
June 9, 2021
Amateur player Jimmy Shultz, started Day 3 of Event #12, the $1,500 Limit Hold'em, with 161,000 in chips. This stack was good for 9th place out of 18 players. An average chip stack couldn't seem very comforting when playing against a field that included Marcus Golser, Ali Eslami, Vinny Vinh and World Series Of Poker bracelet winner, Eric Lindgren, yet somehow Shultz was able to take those chips all the way into head-up play where he defeated Zac Fellows to claim the $257,105 first place prize and his first WSOP bracelet.

After his victory, Shultz, in a surprise and classy move, announced he would be donating 25% of his winnings to his local fire department. Such a large donation would seem very generous even from the highest stakes pro, but from an amateur, it's unheard of, truly remarkable and deserving of recognition.
