Event # 9: Omaha Hi / Lo Championship 8 or higher. At the final table of Event # 9: the $ 10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship, many poker fans turned their attention to Phil Hellmuth, who was very close to his sixteenth bracelet. But unfortunately for his fans, he couldn’t get out of the short stack and finished fifth.
And the champion was a young talent from Canada – Ari Engel, who won his second bracelet at the WSOP by beating Zachary Milchman in the head-up.
Event # 11: Heads Up No Limit Hold’em Championship. Jason Kuhn has finally left the list of the most famous poker players who have never won the WSOP. In Event 11: The $ 25,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship, he won six heads-up matches and added $ 243,981 to his over $ 32 million in tournament earnings.
This week has become special for the player: first he became the global ambassador of GGPoker, and today he won the long-awaited bracelet. Before his last duel, Kuhn said, “I’m not vlogging or streaming, I’m just playing poker.”
Heads-up with Hungarian player Gabor Szabo went like a roller coaster – first one, then the second took the lead. Kun was lucky several times, for example, when he won a flip with pocket fives against suited ace-queen. But the result of the match was that Kuhn would no longer be named among the “best players without a bracelet.”
Event # 12: Limit Hold’em. Israeli player Yuval Bronstein became a two-time WSOP champion after winning Event # 12: $ 1,500 Limit Hold’em. Like Ari Engel, he won his first bracelet in 2019.
Bronstein defeated Kevin Erickson after a lengthy heads-up game in which he fell behind for a long time. But in the end, he entered the club of players who have repeatedly won the WSOP.
