James Moore Wins Rare Back-To-Back WSOP Bracelets

James Moore Wins Rare Back-To-Back WSOP BraceletsIt’s remarkable thing for a player to win a World Series of Bracelet bracelet during their professional careers, but winning the same WSOP event twice in two consecutive years is a rare occurrence, indeed. Players who have managed the incredible feat in the past include two of the game’s legends, namely Doyle Brunson (1976/77) and Johnny Chan (1987/1988), with the latest player to be added to the illustrious list being James Moore.
Last year, the 66-year-old Pennsylvania resident took down the $1,000 Super Seniors event after overcoming a huge field of 1,476 players to claim a coveted bracelet, as well as a first place prize worth $230,626. This time around, Moore managed to do likewise against an even bigger field of 1,720 players to double up on his bracelet tally, while adding a further $259,230 to his live earnings.
The $1,000 Super Seniors event featured a prize pool of $1,548,000, and amongst those players finishing in a 258 money spot was TJ Cloutier in 174th ($1,723), Michael Shahade in 118th ($2,025), June Jenkins in 101st ($2,025), James Woods in 34th ($6,535), and Armand King in 29th ($6,535).
At the final table, Moore then eliminated Terry Stuhldreher (9th), David Smith (7th), Ken Aldridge (5th), Veronica Daly (4th), and John Isler in 3rd to go heads-up against Kerry Goldberg for the title. A further three hours would then ensue before Moore eventually managed to see off his remaining opponent to claim a rare back-to-back victory at the world’s most prestigious tournament poker series, and commenting later on his impressive performance, the full-time Radiologist stated:
“I am shell-shocked at this point.. I’m not sure if I will play any other events other than those two [Super Seniors Event and Seniors Event], we’ll have to see next year,” before adding “I want to be described as someone with a deep understanding of the fundamentals of the game.”
Final Table Results:
1: James Moore – $259,230
2: Kerry Goldberg – $160,120
3: John Isler – $115,357
4: Veronica Daly – $84,005
5: Ken Aldridge – $61,842
6: Darrell Ticehurst – $46,029
7: David Smith – $34,641
8: Daniel Favreau – $26,365
9: Terry Stuhldreher – $20,296
