Oliver Blakey wins first-ever StormX event
First StormX Invitational was held in March 2022 and Oliver Blakey, managing partner at Ascensive Assets, managed to top the 111-entry field to win $183,150 first-place prize, beating "King of Social Media" Branden Hempton heads-up.
In a tournament that featured crypto entrepreneurs and celebrities, only two poker pros made the final table and finished in the money. Maria Ho was the short stack at the final table and ended busting in 9th for $16,650, while David Williams was eliminated in 6th for $33,300 money prize.
