Getting to Know Kuether

Joe Kuether

Working your way through the poker ranks can be tough. For every success story, there are dozens of futile tales. Luckily for Joe Kuether, he can count himself in the former camp. The 24-year-old has followed in the footsteps of Phil Galfond and Phil Hellmuth by going from the classrooms of the University of Wisconsin Madison to the bright lights of Las Vegas. While Kuether hasn’t attained the extraordinary results as his fellow alumni, he is well on his way to a successful poker career.

Kuether recently made poker headlines when he conquered a 332-player field at the World Series of Poker Circuit Harrah’s Rincon Main Event for $111,104. Kuether defeated a stacked field and a tough final table that included WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino Main Event Champ Freddy Deeb.

Since 2009, Kuether has amassed $888,907, including $ 634,877 of which has come in 2012.

In a recent hand, there was around 700 in the pot on a flop of {J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{K-Hearts} when Kuether bet 350 from the big blind after the small had checked. His opponent made the call and then checked the {8-Diamonds} turn. Not one to slow down, Kuether slid out 400, which proved enough to get the job done. It was a small pot, but Kuether is already making the most of his second bullet after being eliminated on Day 1a.

Meanwhile, we've noticed Tristan Wade and Roger Hairabedian have both opted to re-enter and have taken their seat.
