@WPT_TJ_Shepherd had quite a run last month at the WPT Legends of Poker at The Bike in Los Angeles, and he's here for the WSOP Circuit Thunder Valley Series to continue his fun.
Shepherd - 14th in last night's $365 6-Max and in today's $365 Turbo field - is the person whose tournament cash at Legends pushed the WPT's total payouts to more than one Billion .. that's 1,000,000,000 to you and me.
He had so much fun with it that the event has become part of his Twitter handle and his poker persona, introducing himself to me last night - with a hearty chuckle from him - as, "The Billion-Dollar Man."
He just let all his Twitter followers know how much fun he's having here as well.
