Dan "djk123" Kelly Wins Bracelet No.2 At WSOP 2014

Dan "djk123" Kelly Wins Bracelet No.2 At WSOP 2014 Dan Kelly has triumphed at the 2014 WSOP $1,500 Limit Hold’em (Event #43), after besting a field of 654 player field over three days to collect the $195,167 first place prize and capture a second career gold bracelet. The 21-year-old pro’s first bracelet came in 2010 at the $25k NL Six Handed event for $1,315,518, and following his latest impressive performance, Kelly, said:
“Probably hard to top the first one since it was my first World Series and a $25,000. But this one is still pretty cool.”
The Limit Hold’em (Event #43) tournament attracted a large field to create a prize pool worth $886,950. Amongst the big names then making a deep run was Daniel Negreanu in 63rd ($2,926), David Plastik in 29th ($4,966), Allyn Jaffrey Shulman in 30th ($4,966), and Jeff Shulman in 25th ($6,048).
Dan Kelly was then able to overcome a tough final table of nine, which included such talent as 5-times WSOP winners Jeff Lisandro and David Chiu, 2014 WSOP man-on-fire Brandon Shack-Harris, and Limit expert Ron Burke, to eventually go heads-up against Yegor Tsurikov for the title.
As the final battle got underway, Kelly had an almost 3-1 chip advantage over Tsurikov, and after an hour of being dominated Tsurikov was compelled to move his remaining chips all-in holding 10-6. Kelly subsequently made the call with J-10 and after he board rolled out 7-8-7-Q-9 Yegor Tsurikov had to be satisfied with a runner-up finish worth $120,501.
Meanwhile, Kelly collected his second gold bracelet, whilst boosting his live tournament earnings to $3,164,045. Commenting on how he ranks Limit Hold’em as a game compared to other poker formats, the 21-year-old, replied:
“Not super high, but its kind of fun in that it goes pretty fast. There is not a lot of tanking; people raise, people fold, people call. It’s just small bets.”
Final Table Results:
1 Dan Kelly – $195,167
2 Yegor Tsurikov – $120,501
3 Brandon Shack-Harris – $78,335
4 Sean Berrios – $57,536
5 Jesse Katz – $42,857
6 David Chiu – $32,338
7 Jeff Lisandro – $24,683
8 Bryce Landier – $19,051
9 Ron Burke – $14,856
