After several close calls last year alone, Tommy Le won his first World Series of Poker bracelet on Saturday night. Le defeated 428 players in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship event to win $938,732.
Last summer, Le put on a Pot-Limit Omaha clinic, finishing second in the $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller and third in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship. He picked up a third final table in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha. This year, he defeated a stacked final table and Chris Lee heads-up to earn his first title, boosting his WSOP earnings to over $2.5 million.
The final table featured Scott Clements, one of the best Omaha players in the world, and Jason DeWitt each searching for their third bracelet. They came up just short, however, finishing in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
Hani Mio scored his first career WSOP cash and the businessman from Michigan finished third for $397,836. 2011 November Niner Eoghan O’Dea finished sixth, missing out on his first bracelet.
“It is time to finally win one of these. It would be sad to go zero for six.” Tommy Le said.
Murat Tulek and Miltiadis Kyriakides rounded out the final table, finishing in seventh and eight, respectively.
A complete recap will be posted later tonight.
