2016 WSOP: George Danzer Wins 4th Career Bracelet

Germany has just won its first gold bracelet of the 2016 WSOP, after George Danzer took down Event #43: $10k Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Split-8 or Better for $338,646. Danzer famously won 3 WSOP bracelets in 2014, and following yet another impressive performance in Las Vegas, including finishing the $10k Seven Card Stud Championship in 3rd for $103,230, the 33 year-old pro with $2,695,808 in live career earnings commented:
“It’s not like you win three every year. That’s tough to do. Last year was a brick year for me, so this is becoming a much better year, so far.”
The $10k buy-in event attracted 136 players to create a prize pool worth $1,278,400, and amongst the big name pros seeing a return on their money was Felipe Ramos in 15th ($16,981), Dan Shak in 13th ($19,820), Mike Leah in 11th ($23,665), and David Benyamine in 10th ($28,890).
The final table of eight was equally as stacked with top talent, and by the time the action reached three-handed play, the volatile game saw George Danzer, Randy Ohel, and Justin Bonomo taking it turns to gain huge chip leads over one another, and at one stage Danzer only managed to keep his hopes alive by tripling-up after hitting a two-outer.
“When it got short-handed, it got crazy,” explained Danzer. “Eight-or-Better becomes a game of lots of re-steals. It’s easy to lose the overview. Sometimes, you just have to look at your hand and hope it’s the best at some point.”
Following Bonomo’s exit in 3rd, Danzer and Ohel subsequently entered the heads-up phase fairly even in chips, and before long the German pro dispatched his remaining opponent to the rail to claim the victory. Danzer now becomes his country’s all-time WSOP bracelet winner with 4 titles, and commenting on the healthy rivalry which exists between his fellow German pros, explained:
“Everybody always tries to race for bracelets. But we do not have a rivalry among our players. We all try to help each other out and are cheering for each other, but we also try to be the best we can. I hope Dominik wins his fourth soon, so I can then go out and win my fifth.”
Final Table Results:
1: George Danzer $338,646
2: Randy Ohel $209,302
3: Justin Bonomo $148,601
4: Esther Taylor-Brady $107,551
5: Todd Brunson $79,381
6: Eli Elezra $59,773
7: Scott Clements $45,935
8: David Grey $36,044
