Germany's George Danzer Wins Multiple Bracelets At WSOP 2014

Germany's George Danzer Wins Multiple Bracelets At WSOP 2014Germany’s George Danzer has not only picked up his country’s third gold bracelet of 2014, but the 30-year-old poker pro has also become the first player to win multiple titles at this year’s WSOP.
Danzer won his first bracelet after taking down the $10,000 Seven Card Razz (Event #18) for $294,792, and now the German player has done likewise at the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo (Event #38) to add a further $352,696 to his tally. In total, Danzer has cashed five times at WSOP 2014 for $772,374 in prize money.
Commenting after his latest bracelet winning performance, Danzer, said: “This is probably a similar field to the other one [that I won]. These championship level events always draw the best players. It was never easy. It’s just a different Stud variation, but the players are the same. I’d say this is just as satisfying to win as my other one.”
Event #38 attracted a small but tough field of pros to create a prize pool worth $1,259,600, and amongst the players seeing a return on their $10,000 investments was Matt Glantz in 15th ($22,244), Todd Brunson in 13th ($25,569), Ted Forrest in 11th ($29,399), and Norman Chad in 10th ($34,550).
At the packed final table of eight, George Danzer then proceeded to eliminate John Monnette (8th), David Singer (7th), and Brian Hastings (4th), before 2010 November Niner John Racner did likewise to Calvin Anderson in 3rd ($136,490) to usher in the heads-up phase of the competition against Danzer.
As the final battle got underway, Danzer held a 2.5 million to 1.6 million chip advantage over Racner. The German was then soon able to reduce his last opponent to a short stack before dispatching Racener to the rail in a runner-up position worth $217,935. Meanwhile, Danzer collected the gold winner’s bracelet and his girlfriend was also there to witness the bracelet ceremony. Commenting on what it meant to have the support of his girlfriend in Las Vegas, Danzer, said:
“It’s perfect. I said to her ‘I have to win another one now since you’re here and you can be on the rail and cheer me on’ but it was more like a joke. It came true so it’s awesome.”
Final Table Results:
1 George Danzer – $352,696
2 John Racner – $217,935
3 Calvin Anderson – $136,490
4 Brian Hastings – $98,828
5 Jeff Lisandro – $77,238
6 Chris George – $61,594
7 David Singer – $50,018
8 John Monnette – $41,277
