He and Patrick Leonard took down Event #55: $1,000 Tag Team for $74,042 each plus both players' first WSOP bracelet. Another cash, this time in Event #68: Million Dollar Bounty, set Jorstad up for deep run to the Main Event title.
Jorstad won his $10,000 WSOP Main Event seat online at GGPoker where he won a $1,050 satellite. He, Vadim Rozin, and Tom Kunze were the last three remaining GGPoker qualifiers.
