Written By: Maya Michaels | June 24, 2014 | Posted In Poker News

It seems like only yesterday that the first bracelet was won at this years World Series of Poker (WSOP), but already 43 of the 65 bracelets have been awarded, and since the last time we spoke a further 11 bracelets have been handed out at The Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Event 33 saw the American domination continue with Dutch Boyd claiming the title and with it the third WSOP Bracelet of his career, a win that brings his earnings at the annual event to $1,665,868 from his 28 cashes. It was business as usual for the Americans in Event 34 too as Eric Buchman took the honours, though he did have to fight off two Russians in Alex Kravchenko and Aleksandr Denisov who finished second and third respectively. The win was Buchman’s second bracelet win in Vegas, but his first cash since 2012, a win that saw his winnings go past the $3.5 million mark.

Event 35 saw yet another multiple bracelet winner take the honours with Brian Yoon claiming the second bracelet of his career when he won the $5,000 NL Hold’em Eight Handed Event, following on from his success last year when he won the $1,111 The Little One for One Drop NL Hold’em Event. Event 36 drew one of the smallest fields of this years championships so far when just 241 players stumped up the $1,500 to enter the NL 2-7 Draw Lowball Event, an event that was eventually won by yet another American in Steven Wolansky, though the final table was one of the most mixed yet as there were players from Canada, France, Germany and Norway.

Event 37 was won by American Brandon Paster, with Event 38 being claimed by the leader in the Player of the Year rankings German George Danzer. Event 39 saw Americans return to the winners circle with first time bracelet winner Sean Dempsey taking the honours in what is only his fifth ever cash at the annual championships, and Event 40 saw yet another first time bracelet winner in Italian Davide Suriano, who’s previous best finish was 100th in 2012 when he took home just $8,939 in Event 50 $5,000 NL Hold’em.

American Robert Mizrachi claimed Event 41 and with it his second WSOP Bracelet some seven years after his first, with fellow American Michael Drummond claiming his first success in Event 42. Dan Kelly is the latest bracelet winner to report after he triumphed over a field of 656 other players to claim the second bracelet of his career when he won Event 43.

We nearly had a winner to report in Event 44 too, but after six long hours of heads-up play Jordan Morgan and Evan McNiff decided to call it a night with even chip stacks of roughly 4million each, with play resuming tomorrow night in what potentially could last just one hand, or who knows another six hours could be on the cards. So there we go our latest report from The All Rio Suite Hotel & Casino is over for another week and we hope you join us again next Tuesday when we will bring you up to date with all the latest winners from the WSOP in Las Vegas.
