David Bach Doubles Bracelet Tally at WSOP 2017Just like Benny Glaser and Jason Mercier did in 2016, David Bach has now captured a second gold bracelet at a single WSOP year in Las Vegas. Having gotten off to such a stellar start, the US pro will now be hoping to emulate the performances of other poker legends such as Phil Ivey (2002) and Jeff Lisandro (2009) by becoming only a handful of players to raise the bar to three.

Only a few days earlier, Bach beat a field of 364 players to take down Event #11: $1,500 Dealers Choice – 6 Handed for $119,399, before doing likewise to a field of 150 players at Event #30: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship to walk away with a third career gold bracelet, as well as a top prize of $383,208. Following an impressive victory which now pushes his live earnings to $4,042,848, the 45-year-old Georgia resident stated:

“I’m running well and I fell like I’m playing well. I pride myself on being able to play with anybody!”

The $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. event featured a $1,410,000 prize pool, and amongst the players subsequently seeing a return on their investments was Stephen Chidwick (21st), Esther Taylor-Brady (18th), Brandon Shack-Harris (16th), Mark Gregorich (14th), Brian Rast (11th), Anthony Zinno (9th), and Jerry Wong (8th).

The final table was equally as packed with top talent, and following the eliminations of players such as Daniel Negreanu (6th), and Jason Mercier (5th), David Bach eventually progressed all the way through to heads-up play where he faced off against Eric Rodawig for the title. At this stage, Bach was slightly behind on chips, but he was soon able to bridge the gap to finally dispatch his last opponent to the rail. Commenting upon how his two bracelets at the 2017 WSOP compare, Bach stated:

“It couldn’t have been anymore different. This was tougher opponents. A way tougher chip stack situation. To be honest, once I got like four-handed, I felt like I was free rolling. I lost a couple big hands early with good hands and got really short. I lost about a million in chips to some unlucky situations. To come back from that.. I was free rolling.”

Final Table Results:

1: David Bach $383,208
2: Eric Rodawig $236,841
3: Don Zewin $163,557
4: Andrew Brown $115,484
5: Jason Mercier $83,415
6: Daniel Negreanu $61,677
7: Yuebin Guo $46,687
8: Jerry Wong $36,218
