Brock Parker Wins His Second Bracelet in Four DaysPublished on 2009-06-11 06:37:16
Brock "t_soprano" Parker took down the $2,500 Six-Handed No Limit Hold'em tournament on Wednesday evening to capture his second World Series of Poker bracelet.
With his victory, Parker becomes the first player to capture more than one bracelet in the current edition of the World Series of Poker.
This is Parker's second bracelet in just four days, and a true testament to just how good of a player he is. The online poker world knew this before the World Series of Poker started, and now the rest of the poker world is catching on as well.
"t_soprano" took home over $552k for his win in Event #19 on Wednesday evening.
Combine that with his $224k score in the $2,500 Limit Hold'em event just a few short days ago, and you have the makings of a pretty good week for Brock Parker.
Brock faced many obstacles en route to winning his first two World Series of Poker bracelets.
In the $2,500 Limit Hold'em event, Parker was able to battle back in heads-up play against one of the best players in the world (Daniel Negreanu) to take down the bracelet. Limit Hold'em is one of Negreanu's best games, but Parker was able to make a spirited comeback and eventually take down the tournament.
In the $2,500 No Limit Hold'em event that ended on Wednesday evening, Parker managed to navigate through another extremely tough field to take down his second bracelet of the week.
With his win on Wednesday evening, Brock Parker now has close to a million dollars in total lifetime "live" tournament cashes.
A few other things to note:
1. This was Parker's fourth cash of the World Series of Poker, which moves him into a tie with Daniel Negreanu for the lead.
2. Parker will move into the lead in the WSOP POY standings after his win on Wednesday evening.
Congratulations (again) to Brock "t_soprano" Parker.
