Written By: Maya Michaels | July 2, 2014 | Posted In Poker News

It has been an eventful week in Las Vegas at the World Series of Poker (WSOP), what with Phil Ivey winning his 10th WSOP Bracelet and fellow American Daniel Colman triumphing in The Big One for One Drop. For all the latest news on the past seven days in Vegas, where a total of 14 bracelets were handed out, read our latest blog below.

Event 44 so nearly came to a close last Monday evening, but Jordan Morgan and Evan McNiff called a halt to proceedings after a long heads-up battle. They returned to the felt the next day and it was Morgan who eventually came out on top to claim his first WSOP Bracelet and 22nd cash of his career at the annual championships, and with it the $478,012 first prize.

Event 45 was won by Will Givens from Colorado, with John Hennigan winning Event 46 The Poker Players Championship. Givens was winning his first WSOP Bracelet, while on the other hand Hennigan was winning his fourth after previous triumphs in 2002, 2004 and 2008. Event 47 was won by Jesse McEuen, yet another first time bracelet winner, with Tyler Patterson continuing the trend of first time winners in Event 48 when he beat 990 other players to take the title and winners cheque of $270,992.

David Miscikowski claimed his first ever bracelet in Event 49 and by far the biggest win of his career, but it was Phil Ivey’s win in Event 50 that grabbed all the headlines as he equalled Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan’s record of 10 WSOP Bracelets when he defeated Bruce Yamron, though Ivey is still three wins away from tying the record of 13 which is currently held by the one and only Phil Hellmuth.

Event 51 saw Frenchman Hugo Pingray break the American stranglehold with his first ever cash at the WSOP, let alone first ever bracelet win, but it was business as usual in Event 52 when David Olson from Dallas, Texas took home the spoils to be yet another first time winner at this years annual event. Haixia Zhang claimed The Ladies NL Hold’em Championships in Event 53, with German professional Florian Langmann continuing the trend of first time winners with a win in Event 54.

Asi Moshe from Israel earned his first ever WSOP cash at last years annual event when he finished 5th in Event 60, but this year in Event 55 he was elevated to the winners circle winning his first ever bracelet and first prize of $582,321, and American Mike Kachan made sure the trend of first time winners continued even further with his victory in Event 56.

The biggest pay day of this years Championships was always going to come in The Big One for One Drop, with the 42 entrants fighting over the prize fund of $37,333,338. It was Daniel Colman who eventually finished top of the pile when he beat six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu to the $15,306,668 first prize, his third cash at this years championships and sixth of his career. Colman has been coming to Las Vegas for a number of years, but his record was virtually non existent before this year with just three cashes and prize money of just $13,293, but this year he has now cashed three times in total for a total of $15,440,919.

Another great week at The Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino and one that will be remembered for all the right reasons, especially for Daniel Colman who is still probably out celebrating by far the biggest win he is ever likely to have in his career. Well done Daniel you deserved it.
