Another Year of the Comeback/Hey It’s You AgainTM bracelet plus for those who think it’s the Year of the BritsTM, the $10k H.O.R.S.E. champ may be U.S. American but he kinda looks like he’s from across the pond.
Here’s the latest…
:: Event #42 ($1,500 NLH) – Back in ’08, Dean Hamrick just missed the November NineTM, suffering one of the harder to watch beats of the tournament that left him short-stacked and which eventually led to his elimination. But chalking another one up for the Year of the HIYA, Hamrick outlasted a field of 2,521, banking $604,222 and his first bracelet. Get full payouts here.
:: Event #43 ($10,000 H.O.R.S.E.) – A relatively star-studded final table came down to two of the lesser knowns, as Ian Gordon, a U.S. American who looks like a Brit, defeated Richard Ashby, a Brit. Gordon takes $611,666 for the win. Carlos Mortensen finished sixth ($102,237), Nick Schulman finished seventh ($78,654), and Scott Fischman ninth ($48,638). Get full payouts here.
