WSOP Gets First Two Bracelets
The WSOP is arguably one of the most famous poker tournaments across the globe. Currently, the summer edition of the tournament is taking place and the first two bracelets have already been awarded.
The first events that took place were the casino employee event where Peter Thai was crowned the winner. Subsequently, the high-rollers six-handed event also took place and Alexandre Vuilleumier took the first spot in that one. Both players showed remarkable skills in their respective events, which is why they got the first two WSOP bracelets.
A Pro and an Amateur Won the Bracelets
The World Series of Poker has poker professionals from all over the world sitting at the same table and taking on each other. It’s the ultimate test of skill as there can only be one winner. The runner-ups are also awarded, but they don’t get a testament of their skill, a WSOP bracelet.
The high rollers will get a chance at a bracelet, but so do the casino employees. The $500 casino employee event takes in dealers mainly but is also open to other employees with a casino badge. The recent event had 1,0115 and the top player among them was Peter Thai. Besides the bracelet, he walked away with a nice prize of $75,535.
Another event at WSOP catered to high rollers, and there another winner emerged. The $25,000 high-roller event had fewer players than the employee event, but they were skilled opponents. This event hosted 207 high-roller poker players. The prize pool for this event was a staggering $4,864,500. The 32 runner-ups got a consoling prize of at least $40,000, but the player that got the top spot was Alexandre Vuilleumier who walked away with a bracelet and an amazing prize of $1,121,864.
This is his second win this year as Alexandre got another staggering prize of $237,700 at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. The World Series of Poker will continue rolling out events and new winners will walk away with bracelets and amazing prizes. Time will tell who these players will be.
The World Series of Poker has already had its first two winners. Peter Thai is the first bracelet winner of the employee poker event and Alexandre Vuilleumier was the first bracelet winner of the high roller event. Both players showed supreme skills in their events which is why they’re the first two winners.
