Tony Dunst Wins Second WSOP Bracelet and $168K


Tony Dunst is known by many poker fans for his work as an analyst and commentator on the World Poker Tour broadcast. But he’s also known among poker players as a legitimate threat at the tables, and that side of Dunst was on display in the $777 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed event on Tuesday where the poker pro came out on top of a 1,361-entry field to win $168,342 and his second career WSOP bracelet.

Dunst made a deep run in the very first event of this year’s WSOP Online Bracelet Series, finishing in third place for $57,881. He had three more small cashes in this series before Wednesday morning’s big score gave him his fifth cash of the series and the 56th WSOP cash of his career. Dunst has more than $1.2 million in WSOP tournament earnings and more than $3.8 million in total live earnings, according to his Hendon Mob profile.

Jon Turner (havuuuuuc) also advanced to the 6-handed final table in Event #21. Turner has more than $3.5 million in tournament earnings over the course of his impressive poker career, but his quest for a first WSOP bracelet will continue as he was the first player eliminated from the final table.
