Henderson, Nevada poker playe, Bryan badbeatninja Devonshire headed into Day 6 of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event in 16th place out of the 79 players remaining with 3,830,000 in chips.
Devonshire had more things to worry about according to his Twitter, as he found himself temporarily homeless and frustratingly commented, “Tried last night and this morning to extend room. Denied. Was told today I would be taken care of, am not. Homeless and pissed @ Rio.”
Fellow PocketFiver Mike goleafsgoeh Leah was to the rescue, as Devonshire later Tweeted, “Homeless no more thanks to @GoLeafsGoEh.” The run-good continued until an exit in 25th place for $286,000. It was then back to rafting for the outdoors-lover.
