WSOP 2015: Jeff Madsen Wins 4th Career WSOP Bracelet

WSOP 2015: Jeff Madsen Wins 4th Career WSOP BraceletJeff Madsen has won a fourth career WSOP bracelet after taking down the $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better event on Tuesday in Las Vegas. The 30 year-old from Santa Monica, California now becomes one of the youngest pros to have accomplished such a feat, and also joins  a small elite of 4-time bracelet winners which includes the likes of Amarillo Slim Preston, Huck Seed, Tom McEvoy, Mike Matusow, and Tom Schneider.
Jeff Madsen’s other bracelets were won in 2006 (2) and 2013 (1), while the $301,413 first place prize now pushes his life-time earnings to $4,959,610. Commenting on what the victory means to him, Madsen said:
“I think the competition has always been more important to me. Money is part of poker obviously, but I just like tournaments for the thrill of competition and bracelets and cashes. The bracelet’s always meant more than the money to me. Sometimes that’s been to a fault where I’ve played tournaments and gone far and not really handled my bankroll.”
The $3,000 pot-limit Omaha eight-or-better tournament (Event #31) attracted 480 players to create a prize pool worth $1,310,400, and amongst the notable pros subsequently seeing a return on their buy-ins was Brandon Shack-Harris in 26th ($9,408), Mike Watson in 23rd ($9,408), Jonathan Duhamel in 19th ($9,408), Taylor Paur in 18th ($11,754), Eric Wasserson in 13th ($14,833), Robert Mizrachi in 12th ($18,725), and Michael Gracz in 10th ($18,725).
After the time the final table of nine had been reached, Jeff Madsen then proceeded to eliminate Spencer Chen in 9th ($23,941), before doing likewise to David “ODB” Baker in 8th ($30,833), John O’Shea in 6th ($52,324), and Richard Tucker in 4th ($92,003) to eventually go heads-up against Jeanmarc Thomas for the bracelet. Following a tough final battle, Jeanmarc Thomas, too, hit the rail to hand Madsen the title, after which the 4-time bracelet winner said:
“It would have been discouraging if I hadn’t been in spots before, losing tough hands. I just felt like I would finish him off eventually.”
