Jeff Madsen Obviously Wins Third Bracelet

The Kid is back.

The Kid is back.

The 2013 WSOP has a certain 2005-07 feel to it.

The mood is up. Good vibe. People are happy. It *feels* like poker is booming again.

And look at the old school list of bracelet winners this year: Mike Matusow. Erick Lindgren. Tom Schneider. David Chiu.

Add Jeff Madsen to that list.

Madsen exploded onto the poker scene as a 21 year-old  in 2006, winning two bracelets and earning WSOP Player of the Year honors. Then he banged Trishelle, focused on free style wrapping, the 9/11 Truther movement, and the poker results went down hill.

“The Kid” has clearly matured recently though, and so has his game.

In April, Madsen final tabled a WPT event. He’s now followed that showing up with his third WSOP bracelet.

Madsen won Event #35 ($3,000 PLO), earning $384,420. He owned the final table, and the win was never really in doubt.

The Intense Stare of Scott Clements finished fifth ($84,424).
