In and out in less than three hours. That's how Jeff Lisandro did it to capture his sixth World Series of Poker gold bracelet. In doing so, Lisandro earned the AU$51,660 top prize and joined the likes of TJ Cloutier, Layne Flack, Ted Forrest, Jay Heimowitz, and Daniel Negreanu as the other massively accomplished players with that many pieces of WSOP hardware.
Lisandro began the day third in chips, and it only took six hands to send the first three players of the final six home. First to go was Paul Mac, and then Paul Sharbanee followed him out the door. Gary Benson busted in fourth place on the sixth hand of the day before a bit of time passed prior to Zane Ly busting in third place on the 35th hand of Day 3.
Ly, who was making his second final table of this series after placing sixth in the first event, busted at the hands of Lisandro when the Australian Poker Hall of Fame member's aces held up. After that, it took 99 hands of battling with Jason Gray for Lisandro to finish the job.
Gray, who was making his fifth WSOP final table, is also a member of the Australian Poker Hall of Fame, but unfortunately for him his first bracelet will have to wait. On the 134th hand, the final two players got the money in and it was Lisandro hitting a wheel straight on the river to win the tournament.
Final Table Results
With that, another event from the 2014 WSOP Asia-Pacific is in the books, and it was a great one that saw Lisandro once again carve his name into poker history. We're not done, though, and you can find more live reporting by clicking here through PokerNews' exclusive coverage.
