After 17 Years of Waiting for a Bracelet: Shannon Shorr Got 2 Titles at Once

Shannon Shorr's poker dream came true

American professional Shannon Shorr has been playing poker since 2006. And all this time, his cherished desire was to win a WSOP bracelet. For all 17 years, he participated in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas every year, but never once he managed to win any of the tournaments. But last week his dream came true.

Shorr entered the game and won the $2K WSOP Online NLH 6-Max tournament for players from New Jersey and Nevada ($89,100 as a first place prize).

Some tournaments of this series are held exclusively among residents of certain regions of the United States. That's why the players from this country currently hold more WSOP bracelets than all other grinders in the world combined.

Shannon captured the moment of his victory on video. The clip turned out to be very touching: together with Shorr, his pregnant wife celebrated this victory.

But that's not all. 12 days later, Shorr won another bracelet in the $1K NLHE Freezeout ($35,500 in prize money). And in the interval between these tournaments, he also played two final tables:

  • 3rd place in $3,200 High Roller ($44,600):
  • 6th place in $500 NLHE Super Turbo ($5,700).

In just two weeks, he won about $175,000, and made his long-awaited dream come true. Twice!
