Day 3 Completed
The Event 8: AU$5,000 8-Game Mixed has come to a conclusion with George Danzer joining elite company in winning his third bracelet of the year after overcoming a field of 48 players to take home the AU$84,600 first prize.
Three days ago some of the best mixed-game players in poker took a seat in the final mixed-game event of the series to create a prizepool of AU$225,600. Day 1 would play down to roughly half the field, as Day 2 would be a long affair that saw players make a run at reaching the final table. With the top six reaching the money, Brian Rast became the unfortunate bubble boy when his couldn't connect against the to leave the final six returning today.
It would be Danzer out the gate early as he ran his short stack up into the chip lead after doubling through Scott Clements numerous times before 2009 WSOP Main Event champion Jonathan Duhamel claimed the chip lead. It would take roughly three hours until the first player was lost, and in a matter of five hands action was heads-up for the bracelet.
Ismael Bojang would fall in fourth two hands later after getting caught in a monster pot against both Duhamel and Clements in 2-7 triple draw, then a crippled Duhamel fell next in third as Danzer made an eight-six.
With Danzer holding the chip lead, it would be Clements making the move early as he evened the stacks before taking the lead. However, Danzer would find a huge double when his connected on a flop against Clements' . The turn and river blanked out, and Danzer doubled into little more than a 6-1 advantage.
From there, Clements managed to grind it out to eventually snatch the lead back before Danzer started applying the pressure to get things back in his favor. At time went on, Danzer worked out an 11-1 advantage before the final hand played out.
On the first hand of a no-limit hold'em orbit, Clements shoved in nine big blinds with the and was called by Danzer's . The German connected with a ten on the flop, and just like that, Clements was headed to the rail in second place — his fourth runner-up finish in a WSOP event.
Final Table Results
Without doubt, Danzer is having an amazing poker year. With his victory in this event, he takes a 116.8-point lead (923.5 total points) into the final qualifying events of the WSOP Player of the Year race. Most importantly is that Danzer now collects his third WSOP bracelet of the year to put him in exclusive company that includes Jeff Lisandro (2009), Phil Ivey (2002), Phil Hellmuth (1993), Ted Forrest (1993), and Puggy Pearson (1973) as the only other players to achieve this feat.
Congratulations to Germany's George Danzer, who not only joins the record books in equaling the most bracelets won in a single year, but also has himself in prime position to claim WSOP Player of the Year honors. With two events still remaining — the AU$10,000 Main Event and the AU$25,000 High Roller — there isn't anyone counting Danzer out of claiming gold for the fourth time in 2014.
