Eric Buchman Wins WSOP Event 34 and his Second WSOP Bracelet

Eric Buchman Wins WSOP Event #34 and his Second WSOP Bracelet

The World Series of Poker Event #34, $1,500 Seven-Card Stud tournament has come to an end, after having played three days of solid poker between the players. In the end it was the American Eric Buchman who came out on top, after beating the Russian Alex Kravchenko heads up for the title.

A total of 345 players paid the $1,500 to participate in the tournament, creating a prize pool of $465,750, which compared to other WSOP events isn't a lot, but for a card variant that is considered dead, it's quite good. The final day of play, day three, saw only six players starting, which meant that it was going to be a short day.

The heads-up duel between the two players was quite one-sided, as Buchman played quite well and hit some good hands. The second last hand, Buchman managed to cripple Kravchenko's stack, leaving him with a little more than one big blind. The final hand was dealt and on the fourth card, Kravchenko was all-in.

Buchman was dealt another Ten on fifth with the 10 Hearts, giving him trips, while Kravchenko was dealt a 5 Spades for a straight draw and a pair of sevens. But on the 6th card it was over as Buchman was dealt 6 Clubs for a full house and it didn't matter what Kravchenko would be dealt.

Kravchenko finishes in second place for $73,360, while Buchman won his second WSOP bracelet and the first prize of $118,785. You can see the rest of the final table payouts below:
