George Danzer Wins Second Championship Bracelet in WSOP Event 38

George Danzer Wins Second Championship Bracelet in WSOP Event #38

George Danzer is the talk of the town in Las Vegas this year, as the great poker player has just won yet another championship event at this year's World Series of Poker and thus won his second bracelet. Danzer played the WSOP Event #38, $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Championship, battling 134 players for the title.

The 134 players created a total prize pool of $1,259,600 and had three days of poker in front of them, to try and reach the final table and eventually first place. Only 13 players out of the starting 134 made it to the final day and with a final table consisting of seven players, six players needed to bust out before the tournament got really interesting.

It didn't take long before the first players started busting out, which included guys like Ted Forrest and Richard Sklar. Eventually we reached a final table, which was amongst the hardest seen at this year's WSOP as guys like Danzer, John Racener, Brian Hastings and Jeff Lisandro were among the last seven to battle out for the title.

The heads-up duel was reached eventually and was a tuff match between Racener and Danzer, where Danzer had the upper hand throughout most of the battle and could have eliminated Racener faster than he did, but Racener did well and doubled his stack size to keep himself alive longer.

Eventually we reached the final hand of the tournament and the two players gets all-in on the third card and the dealer deals the rest of their hand.

Danzer received his second WSOP bracelet of this season, both from championship events, as well as the first prize of $352,696. You can see the rest of the final table payouts below:
