Friday June 21,2013 : TRIO WINS GOLD AT WORLD SERIES OF POKER
Lindgren, Campanello and Gathy claim bracelets
The last twenty-four hours at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas has seen two players claim bracelets for the second time, and one his first piece of WSOP jewellery.
Erick Lindgren shook off his recent troubles to show that he is a force to be reckoned with in international poker, winning his second bracelet in event 32: $5,000 buy-in Six Handed No-Limit Hold'em after surviving an entry field of 515 and a final table that included respected stars like Jonathan Little, Ryan D'Angelo and Lee Markholt.
Lindgren started final table action as chip leader and dominated much of the action until the heads up with Markholt was reached.
Despite holding a 4 to 1 advantage going into the heads up, Lindgren had his hands full with a tough and determined Markholt, who not only closed the gap, but at one point actually stole the lead in the almost two-hour confrontation.
Lindgren came back big-time, however to eliminate his opponent and send him to the cashier's cage for a second prize of $374,960, reserving the main prize of $606,317…and that second bracelet…for himself.
The other four final table players didn't do too badly either:
3 Jonathan Little $238,833
4 Connor Drinan $157,274
5 Vasile Buboi $106,830
6 Ryan D'Angelo $74,768
