Erick Lindgren Comeback Continues With 2013 WSOP Bracelet Win

Erick Lindgren Comeback Continues With 2013 WSOP Bracelet WinAfter a dramatic start to the year in which a bankrupted Erick Lindgren admitted to having a gambling problem that had cost him around $10 million, it looks like the 36 year old has now well and truly got his life back on track.
Coming into WSOP 2013, Erick Lindgren had already booked a runner-up finish at the $25k WPT World Championship for $650,275, but his good run has also continued in Vegas where he has now cashed 5 times. All importantly, included amongst those cashes is a WSOP win after Erick Lindgren on Thursday took down the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em – 6 Handed (Event #32) for $606,317.
Consequently, Erick Lindgren currently boasts $1,343,825 in live winnings for 2013, and an impressive $9,852,179 throughout his career so far. Commenting on his latest victory at the Rio Hotel and Casino, Lindgren explained:
“I was at the top of the game once and took some things for granted. I had to rebuild from the bottom. It was that kind of hard work, like playing in small games or smaller tournaments. I just worked as hard as I could. I got my game back to where it needed to be and that’s why I am here today.”
On his way to securing his second WSOP bracelet, Lindgren had to first best a tough field of 516 players over three days. Amongst those notable names cashing in at the event was Brian Rast in 54th ($9,240), Daniel Negreanu in 39th ($11,495), Marvin Rettenmaier in 38th ($11,495), Justin Smith in 22nd ($19,110), Dan Smith in 11th ($30,412), Andrew Robl in 7th ($53,863), and runner-up Lee Markholt  ($374,960).
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Erick Lindgren $606,317
2 Lee Markholt     $374,960
3 Jonathan Little $238,833
4 Connor Drinan $157,274
5 Vasile Buboi     $106,830
6 Ryan D’Angelo $74,768
