Poker pros are taking care of business at the 2015 World Series of Poker, with many earning multiple or additional gold bracelets. Just a few days ago, Phil Hellmuth earned his 14th WSOP bracelet, furthering his record as the top WSOP player. Now, poker player Daniel Alaei has earned his 5th bracelet after winning the $10,000 Omaha Eight-Or-Better tournament, earning $391,097 in the process.
With the win, Alaei joins other top pros who have earned five total bracelets including Scotty Nguyen, Stu Ungar, John Juanda and more. Alaei does not compete regularly in tournament game play but when he shows up at the WSOP in Nevada, he is ready to compete. This was the first event Alaei has competed in for the year and it was certainly a great way to start!
Heads up play would take place between Alaei and Kyle Miaso with the final hand having Alaei owning the hand with 10-J-7 on the flop with Q-8-10-10. Miaso holds K-6-8-K and calls all in after the flop when Alaei three bets. A 2 on the turn gave Miaso a few outs but the 6 on the river gave Alaei the win.
First Place Daniel Alaei $391,097
Second Place Kyle Miaso $241,691
Third Place Jeffrey Vaughn $175,088
Fourth Place Scott Clements $129,235
Fifth Place Ken Aldridge $97,122
Sixth Place Anthony Zinno $74,262
Seventh Place Mike Wattel $57,748
Eighth Place Tobias Hausen $45,661
Ninth Place Jeremy Ausmus $36,688
There are still plenty more events to take place in the World Series of Poker, with the Main Event not scheduled to begin until July 5th. Players can take part in several different tournaments including those with moderate to high dollar buy-ins. It will be interesting to see how many more pros can take down multiple bracelets before the big event begins!
