WSOPE 2010: Jeff Lisandro Wins 5th WSOP Bracelet In 4 Years

Jeff Lisandro has just further stamped his authority on the poker world by winning an impressive 5th WSOP bracelet in 4 years at this year’s WSOPE.
The 45 year-old Australian born pro picked up his latest bracelet, after defeating a field of 120 players over three days at Event 2: £5,250 Pot Limit Omaha on Sunday morning, to collect the £159,514 first place prize.
Jeff Lisandro tends to specialise in cash games, where he earns in excess of $1 million every year. However, he has been cashing in at poker events since 1995 and took down his first major tournament at the Bellagio Five-Diamond World Poker Classic in 2003 for $122,217.
The “iceman” who now lives in Salerno, Italy, seems to have a particular fondness  for WSOP events and with his latest victory has now earned in excess of $4.2 million from live tournament cashes, $2,666,119 of which are derived from the WSOP.
Lisandro’s picked up his first WSOP bracelets in 2007 at the $2k Seven-Card Stud event. In 2009, he then went on to collect an incredible 3 bracelets in Razz, Stud, and Stud Hi-Lo disciplines before now winning a bracelet in a Pot-Limit Omaha event at WSOPE 2010.
As this years final table got underway, Lisandro found himself facing a top class array of poker talent which included Jeff Madsen, Willie Tann, John Racener, Karl Mahrenholz, Felipe Ramos, Joe Serock, Jeff Kimber and Chris Bjorin.
By the time the heads-up stage had been reached, Joe Serock held a 2.5 to 1 chip lead against his opponent but Jeff Lisandro’s vast experience held him in good stead as he slowly turned the table.
Eventually, all the chips went in pre-flop with Lisandro holding As-Qs-6s-2c to Serock’s Ks-7s-8h-6h and with the board running out 9s-Jh-8d-2d-Js, Joe Serock was eliminated in the runner-up spot for a £98,262 pay-day.
Jeff Lisandro, however, sealed for himself yet another major victory and has now gone up to 12th place on the WSOP Bracelet Winners Top List, matching the record of such great players as Stu Ungar, Scotty Nguyen, Chris Ferguson, and Ted Forrest.
