Jonas Lauck gets his first WSOP bracelet

After winning the WCOOP Main Event in 2016, Jonas Lauck from Germany can now also call a WSOP bracelet his own.

Lauck shifts the Super Turbo Bounty

About three years ago, Jonas Lauck landed on the radar of the broad poker community when he won the WCOOP Main Event for a whopping $1.5 million. The German can also look back on many successes in the field of live poker, but he hadn’t had enough for a WSOP bracelet yet.

After failing in 2014 at the $1,500 No-Limit Ante Up to 2nd place, he has now succeeded. For the triumph in the $1,500 Super Turbo Bounty, where 1,867 players competed, there was $260,335.

Lauck is thus bringing another success to the German-speaking region after the Swiss-born ex-hockey player Greg Müller won the $10,000 HORSE Championship for $425,347 and Ismael Bojang the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha for $298,507.

Schwartz Wins 2-7 Championship

Once known in the poker scene for his sometimes rude appearances, a now more mature Luke “FullFlush” Schwartz also got his first bracelet at the WSOP on the weekend.

The top prize of $273,336 was for defeating a field of only 100 players in the $10,000 2-7 Triple Draw Championship.

“It feels pretty good, pretty relieving. It’s a nice milestone for a poker player,” Schwartz told PokerNews after his success.

Chidwick gets the PLO High Roller

Considered by many to be one of the best tournament players in the world today, British poker legend Stephen Chidwick has never had enough for a bracelet either. Until now.

A few days ago, Chidwick won the $25,000 PLO High Roller for a whopping $1,618,417 against a field of 278 players.

“I tried to hide the bracelet and everything that goes with it. I’ve been here a lot and have suffered setbacks over the years,” Chidwick said in the winning interview about his WSOP career to date.

Engel finally wins gold as well

Ari Engel has also been playing the WSOP for 15 years now, but apart from a full nine WSOP Circuit Wrestlings, there had never been enough for a real bracelet. That, too, is now history.

Engel beat a field of 995 players and won the $2,500 No-Limit for $427,399.

“Just never give up. You play the tournament series with the expectation of winning one at least once in your life. It’s quite a relief that I didn’t blow it. I usually do that,” Engel said afterwards.

The Mouth learns more about Blocker

Mike Matusow’s Vlog is slowly becoming the most entertaining of the year. At the weekend he asked Daniel Negreanu for help to find out how many Ace-King combos could be on the opponent’s side if you hold an ace yourself.
