German George Danzer Becomes First Player To Double Up At This Years WSOP

Written By: Maya Michaels | June 20, 2014 | Posted In Poker News

German George Danzer has become the first player at this years World Series of Poker (WSOP) to win two bracelets after he triumphed in Event 38 at The Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Danzer is having a series to remember in Las Vegas as he has already cashed five times in the first three weeks of action, with his latest success coming in Event 38, the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Event. Danzer eventually came out on top defeating American John Racener to the winners circle and first prize of $352,696 to bring his earnings at this years WSOP to a remarkable $772,374.

Danzer has amassed two wins from his five cashes this year, the only two bracelets of his career so far, plus four final tables and a placing of 39th in Event 35, the £1,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Event for which he received just $5,517. In his career Danzer has prize money of $1,582,234 from his annual trips to Las Vegas, prize money that has been earned from just 11 in the money finishes.

When you look at those figures a little more closely you will realise that Danzer has been extremely close to winning a bracelet on numerous occasions because of his 11 cashes in Vegas nine of them have been from appearances at a final table, with his record currently showing two wins, one second place finish and two thirds, plus two fifth placed finishes and a sixth for good measure.

Eight out of the 11 cashes Danzer has made have been in the top six, now that is a record to be proud of and one that any player would love to have plastered all over their CV is it not, and the way Danzer is playing right now you would be foolish to rule him out from adding yet more silverware to his CV over the next couple of weeks.
