Jason and Stephanie Rivkin – A Poker Love Story
After organising their wedding in the middle of the pandemic, the Rivkins headed off to Hawaii for a luxury honeymoon. Little did they know that the story would have more to offer when they got home.
Stephanie and Jason have known each other since 2013 when they fought against each other at a Parx tournament in Pennsylvania. After meeting, they began travelling together to live events all over the United States.
Today, I am lucky enough to marry my best friend @StephHub31 💕
A special thank you to all our friends for their support over the years … we can’t wait to celebrate !!! 🥂#runningpure#allinForRivkin pic.twitter.com/QaCI3HsZTJ

The year had already been kind to both of them in the online poker world, but Stephanie was to add even more to her account after winning the WSOP Rio Circuit Event #3 – $125,000 GTD NLH Monster Stack in August.
Also in August, Jason took a cool second in the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em WSOP Championship ONLINE, collecting his third career best cash of $90k.
Impressive Records but Taking a Step Back from Poker
Both of the Rivkins have impressive poker records, but they’re now contemplating a step back from poker as a main career choice.
Jason wants a proper career and a “…more navigable lifestyle and stable income”. Stephanie already works as a pharmacist.
In terms of records, Jason is now pushing $1 million in live tournament winnings just like his brother Eric who actually gave him his start in the game. He also has 67 WSOP cashes, including a WSOP Circuit ring.
Stephanie has a $365,214 record, including an impressive $159,776 for winning the Borgata Fall Poker Open 2015, becoming the first female champion.
