Folding Up the Pay Scale

Kim cashed in the 2008 World Series of Poker for over $1.2M. He took 8th place, outlasting Craig Marquis at the famous November Nine final table.

Some observers criticized Kim's style of folding until he was essentially forced to go allin in the big blind, but he maintained that he did not have an opportunity to put his chips in the pot before that.

In any case, his unconventional level of patience earned him over $300K.
