Wednesday June 3,2015 : ANOTHER NOTABLE POKER VICTORY FOR TUAN LE
Poker ace wins his second consecutive World Series of Poker triple draw deuce-to-seven lowball championship.
Los Angeles professional player Tuan Le (37) has done it again; for the second year running he has taken down the World Series of Poker $10,000 buy-in triple draw deuce-to-seven lowball championship in Las Vegas, besting a field of 109 players to claim his second WSOP winner's bracelet and prize money of $322,756.
In defending his title this year Le came up against some of the biggest names in the game, emerging victorious with his special brand of aggression and audacity. On the final table alone there were four WSOP gold bracelet holders.
Le took on the final table as chip leader, facing Max Casal, Ismael Bojang, Phil Galfond, James Obst, Rep Porter and Calvin Anderson, and worked his way methodically through the pack of aces to engage California pro Max Casal in the heads up.
Despite a heroic effort by Casal, which at one point saw him draw even in chips, Le appeared unstoppable, racking up a 19 to 1 chip advantage before final eliminating Casal, sending him home with a second-placing check for $199,438… his biggest win yet.
The rest of the final table cashed as follows:
Ismael Bojang $130,851
Phil Galfond $89,939
James Obst $63,863
Rep Porter $46,813
Calvin Anderson $35,389
