UK's Alex Lindop Wins 2015 WSOP $1,500 For $531,037Alex Lindop has earned the UK’s second gold bracelet of this year’s World Series of Poker, after overcoming a field of 2,155 players in Event #59: $1,500 No Limit Hold’em to claim the title, as well as the $531,037 first place prize. Following an impressive performance which now takes his live career earnings to $653,747, Lindop commented:
“It really feels amazing to win. I’d had a few deep runs before, but they always fizzled. To come here and have this happen is just amazing. There are no words to describe the feeling I have right now. I really don’t know what I’m going to do with the money. I guess when I get back home, I’ll have to throw a big party.”
Event #59 attracted a good sized field to create a prize pool worth $2,909,250. Amongst the notable pros then seeing a return on their buy-ins was Jackqueline Glazier in 68th ($6,269), Andy Frankenberger in 58th ($7,389), Gavin Griffin in 55th ($7,389), Athanasios Polychronopoulos in 50th ($8,785), Ravi Raghavan in 45th ($10,589), Nicolau Villa-Lobos in 14th ($15,680), and Alan Engel in 14th ($24,263).
After the final table was reached on Day 3, Josh Evans was eliminated in 8th place ($50,897), and following the departure of 2006 WSOP Main Event winner Jamie Gold  in 5th ($120,952), the competition took an overnight break. On Day 4, 2014 WSOP Ladies event champ Zhang Haixia then became the first player to be eliminated, and afer French player Yorane Kerignard’s followed suit in 3rd ($229,787), the final battle was set between France’s Aurélien Guiglini and England’s Alex Lindop for the title.
As the heads-up phase commenced, Lindop held a 4 to 1 chip advantage over his remaining opponent, and eventually the deciding hand was played with Lindop (4-3) moving all-in on a 4-5-3-3-Q board. While Guiglini (Q-5) opted to make the call, his two pair proved no match for Lindop’s full-house and so he had to satisfied with a runner-up finish worth $330,578.
