As the 2014 World Series of Poker continues to distribute gold medals and millions of dollars we wanted to express our heartfelt congratulations to all the winners as well as to all who, although did not take home bracelets, have cashed in and taken home some very nice prize money. Here are your latest winners:
Kevin Eyster from Denver, Colorado, eliminated Pierre Neuville after a hard-fought battle at the final table that lasted for 173 hands. Eyster won Event #24: $5,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em to take home a solid $622,998 and his first WSOP gold bracelet.
John Kabbaj took Event #25: Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better. Kabbaj walked over Thomas Keller to pocket a cool $267,327 and his second WSOP gold bracelet.
Andrew Rennhack powered over Michael Katz to win Event #26: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em. Rennhack wins his first WSOP bracelet and laughs all the way to the bank with $408,953.
Tommy Hang defeated Jim Collopy heads up, effectively denying Collopy his second bracelet. If Hang felt bad, he didn’t show it as he championed Event #27: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. earning his first bracelet and putting away $230,744.
Then, as if we hadn’t seen enough, Russian Alex Bilokur, with nearly $3 million in tournament cashes already, took control of the final table of Event #28: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold’em, by destroying his opponent, Matt O’Donnell, in a heated heads-up war as he turned over the winning flush to take home a sweet $398,567 plus his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
Congratulations to all of you and to all of you who are dads; Happy Fathers Day!
