[ [http://www.pokerstarsblog.com/2006/07/wsop-main-event-day-1a-and-1b-chip.html WSOP Main Event: Day 1A and 1B Chip Counts - PokerStars Poker Blog ] ] He finished early in the second day of play, beating most of the field. He currently makes his living playing Full Tilt Poker [www.fulltiltpoker.com] . Jarrod is an avid Mets fan and can be seen playing poker in the jersey of relatively unknown retired Met, Bob Ojeda.

Online Controversy

Jarrod was also a controversial member of the 2+2 forums, going under the name of BobOjedaFan. He was primarily a member of the Puzzles and Other Games Forum, but his most noteworthy 2+2 accomplishment was his epic battles with other members of the Sporting Events Forum. Jarrod's strange sense of humor and unorthodox posting style culminated in a very controversial banning which shocked many longstanding members of the community.

RickRoll Affection

Jarrod was a pioneer of rickrolling, and frequently used the tactic to deceive others into clicking links that were, in actuality, a posting of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." On April 27, 2008, Jarrod and three other baseball fans attempted to 'rickroll' fans at Pittsburgh's PNC Park by performing a karaoke version of the song for an American Idol-style contest. Jarrod was at least the second individual to attempt to feat at the park.
