On Monday evening at 9 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. CT, 2018 World Collection of Casino Poker(WSOP)Main Event runner-up Tony Miles will show up on the brand-new episode of American Ninja Warrior on NBC. If all goes well and also he can finish the physically-challenging”Qualifying Program,”he stands to win$100,000
in his long-standing prop bet with Shaun Deeb. Back in 2019, Miles was traveling the globe playing casino poker, and also while in Scotland to grind WCOOP, he shared an Airbnb with Deeb. As Miles explained it, eventually at lunch, Deeb asked him concerning his following goal. Miles nonchalantly stated his love of American Ninja Warrior, and also as points so usually do in between online poker gamers, a bet was born.
Listen to Miles on the most up to date episode of the PokerNews Podcast below.
“For our bet, the probabilities started at 25-to-1 as well as will decrease annual over the three-year duration to 20-to-1 as well as 15-to-1 respectively,” Miles previously informed PokerNews. “Getting the telephone call is a very exciting component of the procedure. You have to recognize that a great deal of individuals, around 100,000 I’ve heard, apply to be on Ninja Warrior so it is thought about a severe honor to be picked to actually contend on the show.”
In 2019, Miles stopped working at his initial effort– extra on how as well as why below– to make sure that indicates this go around he stands to win $100,000 on his $5,000 wager.
Obstacle # 1– Coming back on the Program When initially getting the program, Miles thought the combination of the prop wager backstory and the reality he was coming off a runner-up finish to John Cynn generally Occasion may improve his opportunities.
“The program is extremely discerning, however after finishing runner-up in the Main Occasion, I thought I might have a good shot of jumping on, getting a possibility to run,” claimed Miles. While he did get on, getting a second chance was far from a forgone final thought.
He actually had to go with the application process once more and simply hope they would certainly bring him back. In March 2020, he obtained the phone call and was set up to compete in the Season 12 stop in Washington D.C. on April 11-12. He prepared, yet fate had other plans when COVID-19 closed down the world.
Tony Miles is pumped up! Barrier # 2– Pandemic Hold-ups Manufacturing Like the remainder of the world, Miles was excluded in the dark regarding what was going
to happen with little choice however to wait and also see. “The program was held off,” he explained.”I think everyone was in the exact same scenario where we actually didn’t recognize what was mosting likely to take place. It was unfortunate for me as 2020 was possibly the year where I had actually spent the most time into my training. I remained in excellent shape. Technically I was extremely sound on a lot of the barriers and the activities and also physics I need for the program. I was really excited to compete, so when COVID struck and also they postponed it, I was dissatisfied and really did not know whether the show was going to happen or not.”
While he waited, Miles stayed on par with his training, though that as well would certainly quickly be hindered.
Challenge # 3– Terrible Injury
On April 20, 2020, Miles was involved in a bad motorize car accident in which he disjointed his clavicle as well as tore every ligament in his A/C joint. He needed to have total rebuilding shoulder surgical procedure complied with by a three-month recovery duration.
Miles ‘severe shoulder injury. Miles, that at the time couldn’t also reach up for a cup in the cupboard, was told by doctors that he was not mosting likely to be able to contend on the program as intended which he should not be doing any type of sort of exhausting exercise for probably about the following year approximately.
“That has to do with the timeframe they gave me in April, which is usually when the show records,” he said. “I really did not even know if I was going to have the ability to make it back. I didn’t know what was going to occur.”
While the injury was devastating, Miles placed his nose to the grindstone as well as devoted himself to his healing.
“The most effective part of the injury was my attitude. I’ve been via many points in my profession and also in my personal life that I have actually needed to stand firm with. Quickly right after the injury, rather of residence on the misfortune of being included in that, I looked to the positive. This is going to be an additional possibility to verify myself, this is mosting likely to be a chance to obtain more powerful, this is mosting likely to be a possibility to reveal the world that you can recover from anything. That mind over matter is one of the most essential element of being successful.”
He continued: “I’m developed a bit different than the majority of people. I relish the chance to prove myself. When somebody claims you can’t do something, or when those doctors were telling me it was mosting likely to be a year prior to I can begin training once more, I was believing in my head, ‘Alright, so you indicate six months. So, in 8 months I’ll be back in the course.'”
Obstacle # 4– Learning from His Blunders
By the end of 2020, American Ninja Warrior was slated to resume manufacturing, as well as applications scheduled in December. At the time, Miles was simply eight months post-op and having a hard time to do a solitary pull-up, decided to apply. Lo as well as see, he was accepted.
With restored vitality, Miles educated tougher than ever while addressing what failed the first walk around.
“The program rotates in between different obstacles including ones rooted in rock climbing– think hanging, swinging, and also tossing your body from one area to another– and also others focused on balance,” Miles described.
“The first time I competed there was a barrier called ‘Spinning Blocks.’ It’s 6 square blocks that get on bearings with a pole through the facility of them. They’re cocked at different angles, they’re various dimensions, as well as you need to encounter the top of six of them while they spin. You have to remain right over the center of the axis, or else they’ll rotate out. You have to hit the box in the. If you’re an inch off left or right, you’re going down … On the 2nd or 3rd box, I was a little outside the facility of the axis.”
Miles managed to stumble ahead across a couple more blocks, even making it completely to the last one, but ultimately dilated as well as took a dunk into the pool of water below.
“It was a great discovering experience. I took that lesson and incorporated a lot of balance training right into my program. I have actually boosted exponentially in that element. It was just an amazing experience.”
Tony Miles ‘advocates. Challenge # 5– Getting the Work Done? While Miles recognizes the result of his 2nd run, the remainder of the globe will certainly require to wait till Monday night. While he’s bound by an NDA from disclosing way too many details, Miles did say that win or shed, he’s keen to compete once more.
“I am certainly open up to completing once more,” he said. “It’s been such an impressive experience entering this area. It’s a lot different than the poker community, it actually is like absolutely nothing I have actually ever been a part of in the past. You see these ninjas, they’re all helpful of each various other. Although they’re contending against each various other, they’re assisting each other, they’re aiding each other, they’re coaching each other on the sidelines.”
If Miles fails, he still has a 3rd and also last shot in his prop wager versus Deeb. If he wins, he’ll accumulate a huge payday, but that wouldn’t be the end of his ANW tale.
“I plan on proceeding my training whether this wager is real-time or otherwise,” he revealed.
Furthermore, if he succeeds, Miles would advance to the next phase of the program. Of the roughly 100-120 ninjas that run the Qualifying Program, the leading 30 can get the semi-finals. To do so, they either have to complete the six-obstacle program or get the farthest in the fastest amount of time. In the semi-finals, things get even harder as it ends up being a 10-stage challenge training course.
Whether Miles gets there remains to be seen– a minimum of for one more day!

Brock Wilson might have done anything after graduating college, but he didn’t select texas hold’em as soon as possible. Despite winning at the video game from the beginning, Wilson’s unpreventable life as a high-stakes poker gamer was briefly postponed by an equally appealing job in financing. Prior to his arrival on the high-stakes gambler scene, Wilson was a scholastic all-star at Fordham College in New York City, spending all four of his years on the Dean’s List and also finishing with an enhanced degree in mathematics as well as financing. After college he helped two years as an analyst in the financial sector, developing his money and also his skillset before finally taking the leap into online poker full-time.
He presently sits in fifth on the PokerGO Scenic tour leaderboard after a remarkable collection of six final table coatings so far. Wilson goes to the USPO today in search of his initial win on trip.
What is the US Poker Open? Read everything about the excursion’s history below
Finding a Life in Texas hold’em
Wilson’s trip to high-stakes texas hold’em started as a teenager, winning at the game from a very early age.
“I’ve been playing poker given that I was in senior high school,” he told PokerNews. “I would certainly do very well against my secondary school close friends, so I ‘d take some money and placed it online. I got to college as well as began a college video game and also I did rather well.”
Grinding casino poker as well as doing well at it was fun, yet the relocation into playing properly had not been an instant choice after ending up institution. Wilson instead went to function as an analyst for a major bank. “I was constantly delighting in online poker, but I was really significant regarding school as well as majoring in financing. I enjoyed that as well as all my good friends remained in money, to ensure that was the goal and also trajectory for me. I was constantly playing online poker on Sundays with my pals.”
Despite a bright future in financial, Wilson continued to take a serious strategy to texas hold’em while functioning. He would certainly continue to examine and play while grinding away at his initial real-world task.
“I was working in financing as well as I would certainly always take two weeks of trip to play the World Collection of Texas Hold’em in Las vega. Financing was working out but I constantly seemed like I wished to go for my imagine having fun. I had actually constructed a little bit of a bankroll playing online, so I determined I was going to take a threat while I was young and also really did not have major financial obligations. I stopped my job 2 years out of institution in 2018.”
Editor’s Note: Approaching my final day helping PokerNews as I prepare to change out of the online poker industry, I was clearing out some old documents on my computer system that I figured I no more needed. Among them was a meeting I did near the
end of the 2019 Globe Series of Casino poker with previous European Casino poker Scenic tour champ Ramzi Jelassi. Jelassi had actually resurfaced with a few money at the WSOP after years away from the game. He loaded me in on what he ‘d depended on in the interfering years and also what he had actually intended going forward. It appears I ‘d never ever gotten around to writing the piece as I lacked time at the WSOP when I obtained overloaded with online insurance coverage in the Main Occasion. Adhering to that, I took some trip time and after that obtained busy with the Mike Postle legend as well as various other tales prior to the pandemic that turned every person’s world upside-down.
While the meeting is certainly dated, I assume it’s still of some passion, so I create a final access in the “Where Are They Now” collection.
At the end of 2012, Ramzi Jelassi seemed at the peak of what can have potentially been a rewarding career as a star poker gamer. He would certainly just won European Texas hold’em Tour Prague Centerpiece for EUR835,000– simply under $1.1 million at the time– after four straight years of six numbers in cash money, according to The Hendon Crowd.
Dozens of his fellow Swedes had controlled at the felt for many years, taking the online poker globe by storm with their signature ua-aggressive styles, as well as it looked most likely Jelassi would certainly be the next in line.
A few months later on, in the middle of what looked like another effective year with even more than $200K in cashes prior to the end of June, he quickly disappeared from the tables. He didn’t tape a solitary cash for nearly precisely six years.
His name resurfaced on a few listings of payments and chip counts at the 2019 WSOP. He accepted consult with PokerNews for a meeting outside ARIA as the WSOP was winding towards its conclusion in July.
“I didn’t play also one single hand of online poker for more than five years,” he verified. “Not also like a residence game or anything.”
The seeds of Jelassi’s exit were grown the really day he secured that life-changing rating.
Taking the Money as well as Operating
While Jelassi appreciated his time as a poker pro, by the time that fateful EPT Prague happened, he would certainly already been in the ready more than eight years, regardless of being just 28 at the time.
That’s a respectable portion of time grinding in any occupation, especially one as demanding as online poker. Even before the large score, he located himself tiring of playing cards for money, explaining himself as “a growing number of burnt out of it.”
“When you play for as long, it’s like any kind of job,” he stated. “It causes inertia after awhile. You do not have another thing that’s much better to head to so you simply keep undergoing the motions.”
He was considering going back to college for a level. Ideas of his leave technique swirled in his head, and the EPT Prague rating came at an attractive time, offering him the economic safety and security to make the leap.
“I had in the back of my mind that I wanted to go out. However I was playing truly great and I was having scores. When I won EPT Prague, I had the feeling that it was the perfect timing.
“I think I even stated, the very first words that came out of my mouth in the victor’s meeting, ‘Oh nice, now I can lastly stop.’ That resembled the very first words I actually claimed, so it made a great deal of sense to me. I had the huge score as well as in the back of my mind wanted to quit, so OKAY, take the money and run, you know?”
A few months and also a couple of even more scores later on– he most especially took 4th for an additional $90K at the Hollywood Online Poker Open Main Event in Las Vegas– he walked away.
The Mid-Stakes Online Poker Scenic Tour (MSPT )Venetian $1,100 Centerpiece drew 2,790 entries over four starting days, leading to a$ 2,692,350 prize swimming pool. After nearly a week of poker, it was 63-year-old Harlen Miller of Bismarck, North Dakota who emerged triumphant to take down the title as well as$367,801 grand prize. Miller declares to have only started playing texas hold’em a few years ago. Since then, he had actually handled to acquire virtually $200,000 in live-career profits before the MSPT success, which included a $75k rating from a Venetian Deepstack Elder Occasion in 2018.
“I avoided my niece’s wedding event to come play this event,” Miller stated. “I just sensed. A minimum of currently I can obtain her a far better wedding event present.”
Miller, that likewise claimed his birthday was recently, currently has a weighty six-figure rating to his name in addition to an MSPT Venetian trophy to assist celebrate any kind of event.
