Two More WSOP Bracelets Won
With Event #5 and Event #6 of the WSOP Online Event officially in the bag, two more Poker enthusiasts recently managed to each book a WSOP bracelet win. First up to win his WSOP bracelet was Allen Chang – which bracelet also just to happens to be Chang’s first ever won.
The Brooklyn native beat a field of 854 entries all the way to the $161,286 cash prize in the $1,000 buy-in Freezeout event. The total $811,300 guaranteed prize pool ensured that the 126 top finishers all got paid. Some big name players ended in the run for the money too, including Andy Bloch (105th - $1,623), Joseph Cheong (40th - $3,164), and Ryan Laplante (11th – 8,681).
By the time the action had reached the point of nabbing a seat at the final table, Chang was firmly in the chip-lead. Chang eventually ended up beating the likes of Philip Yeh (2nd - $99,709), Filipe Leme (3rd - $69,772), and John Forlenza (7th - $19,390), not only to the big money but also to a coveted WSOP bracelet.
The #6 Final Table
As for the winner of Event #6 and the new owner of the second of the two recent WSOP bracelets won, the final table honours belonged to none other than Texas player Nathan Gamble. The gambling Texan managed to outlast 882 other entries as he made his way all the way to the final table, the $89,424 first-place paycheck, and his second WSOP bracelet won.
Others who had made it successfully onto the money-train include Canadian Poker golden-boy Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu (59th - $1,304), Jared Jaffee (96th - $944), and even Mike “The Mouth” Matusow (37th - $1,754).
Those who had only just managed to miss a seat at the final table include Max Pescatori (10th - $4,813), Jeremy Ausmus (8th - $9,096), and Ryan Lenaghan (7th - $10,750).
A Solid Win For Gamble
It ultimately came down to a heads-up between Gamble and “danish01”, after Gamble had at one point been an 8:1 leader and at another a short stack. But it in the end would be Gamble making his way to the bracelet and the 1st-place prize money, and “danish01” leaving the table defeated in 2nd place. Danish at least got to leave with a not-too-shabby $55,283 payday reward tucked safely into his virtual pockets.
Others who made it to the final table include “rainman3817” (3rd - $38,685), “hansdigalo” (4th - $27,484), (“SSJTimmy” (5th - $19,792), and Simon Lam (6th - $14,484).
