6/19/10 – Northern California pro Matt Keikoan won his second WSOP bracelet (the first was in 2008 in a $2 000 NLHE competition) after three tough days in event 29, the prestigious $10 000 buy-in Limit Hold’Em World Championship.
 
He did so against many of the top names in the game who had created a star-heavy entry field of 171 players for the event. Terrence Chan, Matt Hawrilenko and Greg Mueller provide good examples of the quality of the field.
 
On the final day, 13 survivors started out on a 15 hour endurance test that ended in just two men facing off.
 
The 5 hour heads up in the early hours of the morning pitched Keikoan against Daniel Idema and was characterised by talented and disciplined play by both contestants, but in the end the day and the bracelet was Keikoan’s, along with a first prize paycheck of $425 969, bringing his career earnings to well over $3.2 million.
 
Plucky Idema collected a second placing check for $263,244 from the cashier.
