First Five with World Series of Poker Bracelet Winner Brian Meinders

Brian Meinders

We spoke to Brian Meinders shortly after he won Event #25: $1,500 Limit-Hold’em Shootout. Meinders placed second in a WSOP event, $2,500 Limit Hold’em-Six Handed, in 2010 for $144,650. This time he’ll be taking home his first WSOP bracelet along with a $116,118 payday.

What was the first thought that went through your head after winning?


Who’s the first person you’re going to call?

My brother.

What’s the first thing you’re going to do tonight to celebrate?


Who was the first person to congratulate you?

It was a simultaneous congratulation from a bunch of people over there. [Meinders pointed over to the Rio staff and PokerNews’ Sarah Grant].

What’s the first thing you’re going to buy?

Nothing, money comes and goes.
