Danzer Doubles Up With Second $10k Event Win Of The Summer At WSOP 2014

Danzer does it again
Event 37 winner Brandon Paster

So often at the WSOP we have someone winning more than one bracelet in a series, and 2014 is no different as George Danzer has claimed his second win of the summer by taking down event 38 ($10,000 stud hi low.) He started the day with a commanding chip lead and saw off some strong opposition in the form of Jeff Lisandro (5th) Brian Hastings (4th) and Calvin Anderson (3rd) before putting John Racener to the sword heads up to claim $352,696 for the win. Danzer’s victories show the value of learning to play the full range of poker variants – in times when some NLHE fields stretch into multiple thousands, he had to beat fields of just 112 and 134 to claim his razz and stud hi low bracelets.

Also a winner at the Rio on Thursday was Brandon Paster who led event 37 ($1,500 PLO) after day 1 and was close to the top every step of the way. Paster made it to heads up play against Marcel Vonk with a huge lead and the destination of the bracelet never really looked in doubt as he closed it out for a $264,400 win.

There has been plenty of action on the opening day of the $10,000 heads up NLHE (event 40) and at the close of play the 16 paid positions remain from 136 starters. Erik Seidel is through after winning matches against Alec Torelli, Glen Bickerstaff and James Carroll, making this his sixth cash of the series. Daniel Negreanu saw off Sylvain Loosli, Brice Lin and Max Steinberg to join him whilst Max Silver, who seems to be involved in just about every tournament going at the moment, is also still going. All players will have equal stacks when the following matches start up on Friday:

Erik Seidel           v              Scott Baumstein

Max Silver             v              Sam Stein

Jason Koon         v              Dee Tiller

Alberto Gomez    v              Scott Davies

Tommy Chen      v              Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Colman   v              Taylor Paur

Davide Suriano   v              Serkan Kurnaz

John Smith          v              Ankush Mandavia

One final tournament to give updates on is event 39 ($3,000 NLHE) which is down to 26 players after two days and PCA high roller champion Jacob Schindler is chip leader on 711,000 (89 BBs.) Anthony Spinella (396,000) and Layne Flack (318,000) are also still in the hunt for the $548,460 first prize.
