13 More Bracelets Awarded In A Busy Week At World Series of Poker

Written By: Kimberley | June 11, 2014 | Posted In Poker News

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is now into its third week and the action has been thick and fast, and since the last time we spoke a further 13 bracelets have been handed out in what has been another great week of red hot poker action at the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Justin Bonomo from Denver, Colorado is having a World Series to remember because he has registered a 15th placed finish in Event 22, the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E Event, and was runner-up in Event 5, the $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball Event, but in Event 11, the $1,500 NL Hold’em Six Handed Event, he went one better to finally claim his first ever WSOP Bracelet and with it the first prize of $449,980. That win brought Bonomo’s earnings at the 2014 WSOP to $691,503 and his overall earnings at the annual event to just under $2million.

In Event 12 the $1,500 Pot Limit Hold’em Event it was American Gregory Kolo who walked away with the bracelet and winners cheque of $169,225, with fellow American Paul Volpe taking the honours in Event 13, the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball Event. Volpe certainly deserved his success as he beat a trio of well known names to the title with six time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu claiming the runners-up spot, with Jason Mercier and Brian Rast finishing third and fourth respectively.

American Nicholas Kost took down Event 14 and Belgium professional Davidi Kitai was crowned the champion in Event 15, but it was not long until Americans were at the top of the pile again with Sacramento’s Todd Thuan Bui claiming Event 16 and the first prize of $124,510.

The $1,000 Seniors No Limit Hold’em Championships was Event 17 and again Americans dominated with the top 24 players all hailing from the land of The Star-Spangled Banner, with Dan Heimiller from Las Vegas claiming his second WSOP Bracelet and with it the first prize of $627,462. German George Danzer was the victor in Event 18 with American Ted Gillis claiming the spoils in Event 19, and it was yet another American who came out on top in Event 20 with Kory Kilpatrick from Georgia state beating 388 other players to the title and first prize of $254,891.

Germany came out on top again in Event 21 with Dominik Nitsche, but it was business as usual for the Americans as Christopher Wallace was the winner of Event 22 and Doug Polk claimed the honours in Event 23.
