2016 WSOP: UK's Benny Glaser Wins 2nd Bracelet in Just One Week

The 2016 WSOP is proving to be one for the record books with a number of pros managing to notch up multiple bracelet wins at this year’s poker tournament series in Las Vegas. While the spotlight has been on US pro’s Jason Mercier and Ian Johns for capturing two winners bracelets each this summer, the UK’s Benny Glaser has now followed suit and claimed two titles of his own for Great Britain.
Coming into this year’s competition, the 27-year-old pro had $182,237 in earnings to his name, with his list of accomplishments including last year winning the WSOP $1,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball event for $136,215. In the space of just one week, however, Benny Glaser has now managed to triple his bracelet tally to three, while boosting his career earnings to $900,906.
Glaser won the first of this year’s bracelet after overcoming a field of 934 players to take down the $1,500 Omaha eight-or-better event for $244,103, before just three days later doing likewise to a field of 163 players at the $10,000 Omaha eight-or-better championship for $407,194.
Furthermore, Glaser had to contend with a final table packed with some of the best pros in the game in order to seal his victory, including the likes of Felipe Ramos (9th), Jason Mercier (8th), Todd Brunson (7th), and Matt Glantz (3rd). Commenting later on his incredible performance, Glaser said:
“It’s surprising that I won two back-to-back, full stop. But Omaha eight-or-better is one of my best games and probably the games I’ve played the most hands in online, so it would be one of the top games that it would happen in if it was going to happen. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet. It’s just been a crazy week of grinding and focusing, but now I’ll get some time to enjoy it.”
Final Table Results:
1: Benny Glaser $407,194
2: Skippy Lorgeree $251,665
3: Matt Glantz $175,754
4: Grzegorz Trelski $125,125
5: Robert Campbell $90,846
6: Per Hildebrand $67,291
7: Todd Brunson $50,872
8: Jason Mercier $39,269
9: Felipe Ramos $30,965
