David Bach Wins 2017 WSOP $1,500 Dealers Choice

David Bach Wins 2017 WSOP $1,500 Dealers Choice A total of 364 players entered Event #11 of the 2017 World Series of Poker, the $1,500 Dealers Choice 6-Handed tournament, to create a prize pool worth $491,400. The action then continued for three days, at the end of which it was top pro David Bach who would eventually triumph over the field to collect a second career gold bracelet, as well as a first place prize of $119,399.
David Bach’s first WSOP bracelet was won back in 2009 after taking down the $50,000 World Championship H.O.R.S.E. event for $1,276,802, and over the years he has come excruciatingly close to winning many more, but ultimately falling short after recording three runner-up finishes from five final table appearances. Following a winning performance at the Rio which now pushes his career earnings to $3,659,640, the perennial pro from Athens, Georgia commented:
“You know, I had three second places and to get that second bracelet is really nice. Especially in a game like Dealers Choice, where I feel like I play mixed games all the time. This is like one of the best tournaments to win.”
The $1,500 buy-in mixed-game event attracted a tough field, and amongst the notables pros finishing in one of its 55 money spots was David Benyamine (28th), Jesse Martin (20th), Robert Mizrachi (12th), Justin Bonomo (10th), Brandon Cantu (8th), and Chip Jett (7th).
After the final table was set, David Bach subsequently ploughed through his opponents in double-time, including Kevin Iacofano heads-up, to claim the victory and give his 2017 WSOP campaign an early boost. Commenting on some of the tactics and decisions he made to give himself an advantage over his competitors, Bach explained:
“I saw other people call badacey, and I saw some rather big mistakes based on having played a lot of the game in cash. So, I called it because of that. Normally, I would call more stud games. But, it seemed like I saw mistakes at badacey. Then, the stack size started to matter. As I got a really dominant chip lead, I could call some games where it was good to push people around.”
Final Table Results:
1: David Bach $119,399
2: Kevin Iacofano $73,779
3: Chris Sensoli $47,629
4: Scott Milkey $31,550
5: Anthony Arvidson $21,460
6: Wook Kim $14,998
