Magical Brock Parker Wins 3rd WSOP Bracelet At $10k Omaha Hi-Lo (Event #10)

Magical Brock Parker Wins 3rd WSOP Bracelet At $10k Omaha Hi-LoBrock Parker was a ‘Magic: The Gathering’ expert before turning to poker as a profession, and is credited with having influenced a whole new generation of MTG players to do likewise. After all, who wouldn’t be inspired to follow in the footsteps of the 32-year-old poker pro from Maryland, who now boasts three WSOP bracelets and $3,218,462 in tournament earnings after his latest triumphs in Las Vegas.
Brock Parker was one of 178 players to enter the WSOP $10,000 Omaha eight-or-better championship, and following three days of action at the Rio, eventually walked away the champion for $443,407, as well as completing a hat-trick of WSOP victories. Commenting on his remarkable feat, Brock Parker, said:
“[It’s] Pretty unreal. It’s a lot of money and it’s a $10k so it’s pretty prestigious and the third one is great.”
Parker won his first two bracelets back in 2009, firstly at the $2,500 Limit Hold’em Short Handed event for $223,688, followed by the $2,500 NL Short Handed for $552,745. Before taking down this year’s $10k Omaha Hi-Lo (Event #10), he also finished 5th in the $1,500 Seven Card Razz (Event #7) for $25,717, placing him ahead of Vanessa Selbst so far at this early stage of the 2014 WSOP POY race. Talking about his prospects going forward, Parker explained:
“The one year that I won two bracelets and I had like seven cashes total, I came in like fifth or something. It was the worst year to win two bracelets. Lisandro won three bracelets and like two other people won two bracelets. I didn’t even come remotely close. If I can have a first and a fifth and some other finishes and make it, that would be great.”
At the seat of his latest triumph, Brock Parker eliminated Jason McPherson from the final table in 6th ($84,195), before reaching the heads-up phase of the competition roughly even in chips against the UK’s Richard Ashby. Nevertheless, Ashby soon sank to a nine-to-one chip disadvantage before finally bowing out the runner-up for $274,019. Meanwhile, Brock Parker further stamped his authority on the game after walking away with yet another gold winner’s bracelet.
Final Table Results:
1 Brock Parker – $443,407
2 Richard Ashby – $274,019
3 Ofir Mor – $198,508
4 Shirley Rosario – $146,522
5 Viatcheslav Ortynskiy – $110,113
6 Jason McPherson – $84,195
7 Steve Lustig – $65,472
8 Melissa Burr – $51,768
9 Dan Kelly – $33,949
