Robert Campbell first double bracelet winner at 2019 WSOP

Top Poker Tweets from 2017 WSOP (Week 7)

Robert Campbell headed to the 2019 World Series of Poker looking for his first WSOP bracelet. Now he’s got two.

Campbell, from Melbourne, Australia, won his second WSOP bracelet of 2019 earlier this week after winning the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship. That win came a few weeks after he claimed his first bracelet in the $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw tournament.

For his first win in the Lowball tournament Campbell cashed $144,027 after outlasting a 467-player field. He bettered that in the Championship with a $385,763 cash against a 131-player field. That was the largest cash of Campbell’s live-poker career and bumped his lifetime earnings up to just under $1.3 million.

In the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship Campbell faced a formidable final table. Including Campbell all but one of the eight-players at the final table had at least one WSOP bracelet, and they combined for 14 WSOP wins overall.

In the end it came down to Campbell and Yueqi Zhu heads-up for the tournament title. Zhu was in his second heads-up battle of this year’s WSOP after finishing runner-up in the $1,500 Omaha Mixed tournament just a few days earlier. He’d end up having to settle for second place once again.

During heads-up play all the luck seemed to flow Campbell’s way. This included making the Wheel on one of the first hands of heads-up, two nut-flushes, and Aces up where both his Aces were concealed until the showdown.

When they had reached what turned out to be the final hand Campbell had a massive 22-to-1 chip lead. On the final hand Zhu was all-in at third street holding 10h-10s-Qs, while Campbell held Ah-10c-Ac. Campbell ended up with Ah-10c-Ac-Qd-Jh-8s-9h for a Queen-high straight. Zhu was unable to beat him with 10h-10s-Qs-3h-Qh-5s-4c for two pair.
