Dan Kelly Wins WSOP Event #43 and $195,167

By Daniel Allermand

The World Series of Poker Event #43, $1,500 Limit Hold’em poker tournament has come to an end after three days of play, in a tournament where prominent guys like Jeff Lisandro, David Chiu and Brandon Shack-Harris where all participating and also all reached the final table. Overall a total of 657 players participated in the tournament, creating a prize pool of $886,950.

Eventually we found a winner of the tournament and this time it was Dan Kelly who took down the tournament and won his second bracelet ever. Kelly had a difficult final table, but played extraordinarily good poker and thus found himself in some great spots to eliminate opponents and build up a good stack all the way through the days.

Kelly never really found himself in any sort of troubles on the final table and he had a massive chiplead when he reached heads-up  play against Yegor Tsurikov. Tsurikov managed to make a few minor comebacks in the duel between the two, but in the end it was Kelly who was victorious.

It took a total of 331 hands on the final table before we reached the final hand of the tournament, in a hand that went like this: Tsurikov raised pre-flop, Kelly three-bets and Tsurikov got all-in with a four-bet which Kelly calls.
