Nick Binger wins WSOP Bracelet

In one of the most riveting heads up battles in this year’s WSOP, Nick Binger took home a grand prize of $387,073 and wins his first ever WSOP Bracelet. The Event that he won was the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Low Split. The event had attracted a field of 352 players, all of them hopeful to be the one who gets the grand prize as well as the bracelet. In fact, there were a couple of very formidable pros who joined the fray in order to get a chance at the title, among them were Phil Laak, Nick Schulman, and David Bach. It was David Bach who would eventually be Binger’s contender for the title, but the poker pro ultimately fell short of his goal.wsop bracelet

The Final Table

The first one to be eliminated in the final table was Allen Kesller. Kesller was unfortunately enough to bump against Phil Laak who managed to get a full house on the river. Next to go was Bjorn Verbakel, this time courtesy of binger. Nick Schulman was the next one to be sent to the rails after bumping into fellow pro, David Bach. Peter Charalambous was the next one eliminated, this time courtesy of Binger, though the fall came before that when he went against Yockey. Then, at fifth place was Trevor Reader, who was unfortunate enough to clash against – again – Binger. Then, wearing his trademark hoodie and glasses, it was Phil Laak’s turn to go, eliminated by Bach. Then Bryce Yockey was eliminated at third place, leaving Bach and Binger to battle it out at heads up.

Heads up: Bach vs. Binger

David Bach actually had the chip lead as he went into heads up with Nick Binger. However, it wasn’t a very sizable lead, his 3.02 million chips to Binger’s 2.27 million. At heads up, anything could happen, and places could be switched with just a couple of well timed double ups. There wasn’t much of this during the battle between Bach and Binger, though their stacks did allow them to trade the lead back and forth. At the final hand, Bach had ADKSKH4H and Binger had AC5D3C3D. It really seemed as if Bach had the better hand. But this is poker, folks. Anything could happen. And so with a board revealed to be 7CdH2C9C5C, Binger got a flush, enough to win him the tournament and the grand prize.
