Rex Clinkscales is a World Series of Poker Circuit grinder who has made a few big scores over the last couple of years, including a 1st place performance in the 2012-13 WSOP Circuit Harrah's Philadelphia Main Event.
Midway through 2014, Clinkscales is off to a torrid start, as he has taken home three trophies in as many months.
First, Clinkscales took down the 2014 Wynn Classic's $550 No-Limit Hold'em title in February to add $39,661 to his roll. Then in April he won a $300 NLHE event at the Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza II series for a $9,073 payday.
Finally, Clinkscales won the Colorado Poker Championship in May for another big score, giving him a bit of momentum heading into the WSOP.
He chatted with PokerNews' ace reporter Chad Holloway earlier in the week to talk about the big win, and his plans for the summer, so click over and listen to what the rising poker star had to say.
