Actress Beth Hall, best known for her roles on the shows Mom and Mad Men, earned her first major tournament victory Monday night in a World Series of Poker Circuit event in Los Angeles.
Hall took home $13,885 and the WSOPC ring in a one-day, $400 event at the Parkwest Bicycle Casino. Hall has played quite a few tournaments in and around Los Angeles over the last 15 years, and this victory – her first, at least according to Hendon Mob – stands as her second-largest career live tournament cash.
Hall’s best result to date was a $24,000 cash for finishing 14th in a $350 No Limit Hold’em event during the 2016 Socal Poker Championships, also at The Bike. That tournament featured a staggering 9,807 entries, with Upeshka De Silva, Jesse Sylvia, Chris Moorman and Sorel Mizzi among the players who ultimately made that final table. Among Hall’s multitude of cashes, she’s recorded four WPT side event results to date – all in Los Angeles.
Hall has apparently been in the lab working hard on her tournament game. In the aftermath of her victory, Hall was congratulated by Faraz Jaka, with whom she has been working via his Jaka Coaching training site. It’s been a good stretch for players under the Jaka Coaching banner of late; Angela Jordison recorded a career year in 2022 and recently won the Global Poker Award for breakout player of the year.
With her victory, Hall has earned a spot in the $1 million freeroll Tournament of Champions at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas this summer. The three-day tournament, Event 4 on the schedule, runs from Wednesday, May 31 through Friday, June 2.
Outside of her roles on the Mom and Mad Men casts, Hall has appeared on Parks and Recreation, Curb Your Enthusiasm, House, and Frasier, among other shows.
