Jack Ury spent the last four years inspiring up and coming poker players at the World series of Poker. This past Tuesday, the oldest player to ever enter a WSOP event passed away at his home in Terra Haute, Indiana at the age of ninety-seven.

Ury is known as a congenial poker player who did well in all of his appearances at the main event. Ury made the second day of competition in each of his four appearances, although he never was fortunate enough to cash in the biggest tournament in the world.

While at the tables, Ury was known for inspiring others. The younger generation looked at Ury as a pioneer, someone who could play the game of poker all the way up until his last years. At times, Ury needed assistance with posting blinds, but when it came to the game itself, he was as sharp as any player at the tables.

The poker player with the magical smile made it to the third day of action last year, but he did not attend day three. The stack he survived day two with, 8,200 in chips, was blinded out until Ury was knocked out of the main event.

; Ury's passing will not mark the end of the family participation in professional poker.Ury's grandson, Seth Harrold, is a poker player and has entered the tournament with his grandfather for the past four years.Harrold has yet to have the success of cashing at the main event, but he plans on entering in the future.

Earlier this year, the schedule for the 2011 World series of Poker was unveiled. Several new tournaments will be part of this years festivities, including a heads-up event that will allow over 200 players to enter. The tournament will be in addition to the heads-up event later in the WSOP that is played by chosen professionals.
