Isaac Haxton Wins His First WSOP Bracelet
It's quite surprising, but a player who has won about $36,000,000 in live tournaments has not yet had a bracelet in his portfolio. But now Isaac Haxton coped with this task, and along with the gold bracelet also won quite a big prize of $1,696,215.
The massive $7,000,000 prize pool was formed by a record field of 301 players. They all put in a $25,000 buy-in to compete for the bracelet. Before the start of the final table, almost all the attention of the audience was directed to Haxton. Everyone expected him to win the first bracelet, because it is very important achievement for every famous poker player.
«I've finished second and third many times for my biggest cashes so it's nice to finally win», – Isaac commented. He also added that he would not stop there, and one of these days he would try to win the event with a buy-in of fifty thousand.
It cannot be said that the final table was easy for Haxton. Several times he would swing down to a short stack and then become the chip leader again. As a result, he got to heads-up with Ryan O'Donnell.
Ryan is an online Spin tournaments master and even works as a Spins trainer. But live tournaments are completely different, and in this discipline maestro Isaac completely beat him. In the last hand of the tournament, A-J stood against A-T. A ten on the flop gave the Brit some hope, but a jack on the river gave the victory to the American player.
