Biography

Biography

Born February 11, 1983, Rex Clinkscales grew up in San Antonio, Texas, but now resides in Las Vegas as a professional poker player.

Background

Clinkscales began playing tournaments in 2010 when the World Series of Poker Circuit stopped at Caesars Las Vegas. It was there that he cashed three times for $3,980—Clinkscales was hooked. Over the next few years, the Texas native embarked on the WSOP Circuit and began to make a name for himself.

“I have never been the type of guy to work a nine-to-five job. Clocking in and being micro-managed day in and day out just wasn't appealing,” Clinkscales told PokerNews. “I love to travel and experience new places and meet people from different walks of life. Poker gives me the ability to do all of that. It isn't the easiest of "jobs," but to me it's the most rewarding.”

World Series of Poker Circuit

As of April 2013, Clinkscales has 28 WSOP Circuit cashes for $126,839, including 15 cashes and ten final tables in the 2012/2013 season, enough to give him 287.5 points on the WSOP Circuit National Leader Board and a seat in the National Championship.

Despite his success, Clinkscales doesn’t have a ring, the WSOP Circuit’s equivalent of a championship bracelet. That’s not to say he hasn’t come close. Clinkscales finished runner-up in both the 2011/2012 Harrah’s Rincon Event #1 $355 No-Limit Hold’em and 2012/2013 IP Biloxi Event #10 $365 No-Limit Hold’em for $13,504 and $8,460 respectively. He also had a third-place finish in the 2012/2013 Horseshoe Bossier City Event #10 $365 No-Limit Hold’em for $8,097.
