Harrison Gimbel Claims Winner's Bracelet at 2017 WSOP

Harrison Gimbel Claims Winner's Bracelet at 2017 WSOPHarrison Gimbel has won Event #68 of the World Series of Poker, $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em, after besting a field of 1,349 players over three days on his way to collecting a career first gold bracelet, and a top prize worth $645,922. Gimbel’s victory now completes a Triple Crown, with the Florida pro having won the 2010 PCA Main Event for $2.2 million, and the 2016 WPT Rolling Thunder for $275,112.
After beating Chance Kornuth heads-up to claim a WSOP bracelet at this year’s WSOP in Las Vegas, Harrison Gimbel, now with $4,665,364 in live tournament earnings, commented:
“It was a swingy day. I was anywhere from chip leader to down to four bigs maybe 12 times I felt like in this tournament. It’s nice to get a win, it’s my first at the World Series. I’m happy. Chance is a hell of a player. It was a really fast heads up, I wasn’t expecting that.”
Event #68 featured a $3,642,300 prize pool, and amongst the recognizable pros seeing a return on their $3,000 buy-ins was Ryan D’Angelo (43rd), Tony Dunst (41st), Daniel Negreanu (29th), Kevin Saul (28th), Eric Froehlich (16th), and Matt Salsberg (13th).
At the final table, Gimbel then proceeded to eliminate Enio Bozzano in 6th, Chris Farmer in 5th, while Chance Kornuth took care of John Griffin (4th) and Ryan Van Sanford (3rd) to usher in heads-up play for the title.
Just seven hands later, and the contest was all over after Gimbel’s pocket queens beat Kornuth pocket tens to clinch his famous victory. Meanwhile, Chance Kornuth had to settle for a runner-up finish worth $399,132, which now boosts his live earnings to $5,444,013.
Final Table Results:
1: Harrison Gimbel $645,922
2: Chance Kornuth $399,132
3: Ryan Van Sanford $285,148
4: John Griffin $206,119
