British players continue to do well in World Series of Poker, with Steve Jelinek claiming a fifth gold bracelet for the Brits in event 41 of the 41st WSOP. 
Event 41 was a $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better competition entered Day 3 Thursday afternoon with15 players left from the initial entry field of 847, and by late that night after 12 hours of action only four players remained when level 29 started.
Leading the field was Jelinek on 2,500,000 and John Gottlieb on 1,511,500, and that’s the way the heads up panned out after 12 hours of action.
In the early hours of Friday morning, and with very little difference in the two finalist’s chip stacks, it was Jelinek that pulled it off to claim his first bracelet and the $245,871 first prize, leaving his opponent with a still-generous second placing reward of $151,884.
The other Brit bracelets this year belong to Praz Bansi, James Dempsey, Richard Ashby and Mike Ellis.
