WSOP Week Three Recap

A big load of bracelets have found their happy owners during the past week - 14 to be exact which puts the number of golds given out so far at 34. 

Pablo Mariz wins the Millionaire Maker

This No-limit Hold'em tournament guarantees $1,000,000 for the first prize every year - but it can be even more, evidently, if the large number of entries swells up the prize pool. This is exactly what happened this year, 7,760 seats were filled at the start of the tournament so Pablo Mariz the victor at the end pocketed $1,221,407 and his first WSOP bracelet.

David Bach wins the $10K H.O.R.S.E

David Bach is the first to rack up two bracelets in this year's WSOP: after coming in first in the $1,500 Dealer's Choice he also managed to top the field in another mixed game, the $10K H.O.R.S.E. You'd think this would put the Georgia man high on the WSOP Player of the Year board, but you'd be wrong - he's currently only 25th.

James Moore defends his Seniors Event title

James Moore did something that is rare in poker due to the high number of variants in the game: winning the same championship back-to-back. That championship was the $1K buy-in Super Seniors Event which has an age requirement, you have to be at least 50 to enter. Moore had no trouble with that since he's 66.

Chris Moorman comes in first in the $3K No-limit Hold'em 6-handed Tournament

Chris Moorman has made more money playing poker online than anyone else and he also pulled off a massive live poker acheivement: he's won his first golden bracelet in the $3K 6-handed tourney.

Tyler Groth wins the $1K Pot-limit Omaha

The Iowa man bested the field of over 1,000 players and won almost $180K along with his frist WSOP bracelet. This is the tournament the insane Royal Flush and cunterfeit quads vs. top boat hand was played.
