Jeffrey Lisandro World Series of Poker

Lisandro reached a final table at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in the 1997 $3 000 Pot Limit Hold’em Event that was won by Phil Hellmuth Jr.

Over the next decade, Lisandro has appeared on four WSOP final tables, in Omaha, Seven-Card Stud and 2 to 7 Lowball events.

At the 2006 World Series of Poker (WSOP), Lisandro won $659 730 for finishing 17th in the main event.

He continued this success in 2007 when he finished 2nd in the World Championship Pot Limit Hold’em Event, winning $294 620 in the process.

He went on to win his first – and so far only – World Series of Poker bracelet in the $2 000 Seven-Card Stud Event.

To date, Lisandro has cashed 21 times at the WSOP, earning just under $1.4 million. He has cashed in four or more tournaments at the WSOP in every year since 2004 and will be sure to be gunning hard for more bracelets in 2008.

World Poker Tour And Other Poker Tournaments

Lisandro has finished in the money in one event on the World Poker Tour (WPT), but he still hasn’t reached a final table on the circuit.

In December 2004, he won the $25,000 Limit Hold’em Heads-Up tournament, defeating Howard Lederer in the final to take home the $194 000 grand prize.

As of 2007, Lisandro’s total live tournament winnings come to over $2.6 million.
