Kahle Burns wins another WSOPE braceletOctober 30, 2019 4:51 pm
Kahle Burns continues to make a name for himself at this year’s World Series of Poker Europe after claiming his second WSOP bracelet at the series.
Burns added a second WSOP bracelet to his collection after winning the €2,500 Short Deck tournament. He outlasted a 179-player field to cash €101,834, which is approximately $112,835 US.
Less than a week ago Burns won his first career WSOP bracelet in the €25,500 Platinum High Roller No-Limit Hold’em tournament. His cash for that win was €596,883, or $644,410 US. Entering the WSOP Burns had only 12 WSOP cashes to his name worth just over $750,000 US.
The Australian native has had plenty of success outside the WSOP and his lifetime live-poker earnings now sit at just over $6.5 million US.
In the short deck tournament Burns entered the seven-man final table with the chip lead. His 2.1 million chips put him nearly 100,000 chips ahead of his nearest opponent Felix Schulze. Burns maintained his chip lead until the table reached three-handed play and he lost a chunk of his stack to a double-up by Manig Loeser.
Not long after he took back what he lost from Loeser and more to regain the chip lead.
Burns entered heads-up play against Loeser will a solid chip lead, holding 6.3 million chips to 2.5 million for Loeser. The heads-up fight proved to be a short one, lasting only two hands.
On the final hand of the tournament Loeser moved all-in and Burns made a quick call. Loeser showed Kh-Jc and was in big trouble when Burns turned over Ah-Jh. The flop put Loeser in an even deeper hole when it showed Ac-Qc-7h and paired Burns Ace.
The 9d on the turn left Loeser drawing dead. A meaningless 7d on the river ended it handing the win and a second bracelet to Burns.
