WSOP 2013: Jarred Graham Captures Australia's First Bracelet

WSOP 2013: Jarred Graham Captures Australia's First BraceletAustralia has captured its first bracelet of WSOP 2013, after Jarred Graham took down the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo event on Wednesday for $255,942.
Past poker accolades for the 24-year-old Aussie pro include winning the APPT Sydney A$15k High Rollers Event in 2008 and 2009, as well as in 2009 winning the A$1,500 Sydney Championships Main Event for A$121,500. With his latest victory in Las Vegas, Jarred Graham now takes his live tournament earnings to $915,091.
On his way to victory, Jarred Graham had to first make his way past a tough field of 936 players over three days to claim the top prize. Amongst those notable names cashing in at WSOP Event #31 was Eoghan O’Dea in 93rd ($2,603), Jonathan Little in 75th ($3,146), Allen Cunningham in 44th ($5,458), Mike Matusow in 40th ($5,458), Matt Giannetti in 35th ($6,456), Mel Judah in 27th ($7,733), and Jeff Lisandro in 24th ($7,733).
By the time the final table of nine had been set, Barry Greenstein and Perry Green were the prominent names still in contention, although it was Jarred Graham’s rail, which included Joe Hachem, Jackie Glazier and a group of fellow Australians, that seemed to offer the most vocal support.
After five-and-a-half hours of final table action, the Aussie pro then managed to take a 4-to-1 chip lead over Marco Johnson into heads-up, eventually besting him after just 10 minutes of play.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Jarred Graham — $255,942
2 Marco Johnson — $158,379
3 Barry Greenstein — $99,091
4 Noomis Jones — $71,924
5 Gabriel Blumenthal – $53,096
6 Loni Harwood — $39,803
7 Eric Rodawig — $30,275
8 Joao Simao — $23,338
9 Perry Green — $18,233
