Out of Retirement


Jon-Aguiar-08-22-13-03739Just a few days ago, Jon Aguiar sent the tweet above about coming out of his poker retirement. Turns out Aguiar wasn’t kidding as he has once again hit the felt.

A WSOP bracelet winner, Aguiar decided to step away from poker to work on his new project, Draft Kings. Now based out of Boston, Aguiar has been dedicating all of his time to his new venture. However, the allure of a $10 million prize pool drew Aguiar to South Florida.

Aguiar has taken his seat on Day 1A of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $10 Million Guaranteed Main Event. Retirement has been good to Aguiar so far, as he currently sits on 53,000 in chips.
