Electric Friday night in Las Vegas. While the UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ cranked up around town celebrating Electric Daisy EDM music festival, three bracelets were at stake at the Rio Casino including the conclusion of the epic five-day endurance event. Joseph Di Rosa Rojas from Venezuela took down Event #23 The Marathon for a $690K score. Meanwhile, British pro Chris Moorman won Event #27 $3K NL 6-Handed for his first-ever bracelet. Also, Brian Brubaker shipped his first bracelet with a victory in Event #28 $1,500 Lowball Triple Draw.

The raver circus comes to town. One of the biggest EDM festivals in North America took over Las Vegas for the weekend as raver kids and other dance freaks from all over the globe descended upon Sin City for Electric Daisy Carnival. Meanwhile, beneath the ecstatic glitter and glowsticks, the 2017 WSOP continued as three tournaments battled down to a champion.

In your fetish tent, Joseph Di Rosa Rojas from Venezuela won the Marathon for a sicktastic score worth $690K. That's a hefty paycheck for a week of donkeyhunting in this newly-minted event with a $2,620 price tag.

Over in the Euro-untz tent, German soccer pro Max Kruse put on a dazzling set with an uber-deep run in Event #28 $1,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw. Alas, the German bowed out in fourth place. Instead, California pro Brian Brubaker got all the booty for himself when he took down the Deuce to Seven Triple Draw event for his first bracelet.

And in the throwback tent, Brit-pop ruled the airwaves like it was the early 00s again. Chris Moorman finally broke on through to the other side for his first WSOP win. Dunno if the British pro has been eating peyote with Jim Morrison in the astral realm, but Moorman hoisted a piece of bling over his head for the first time when he won Event #27 $3K 6-Handed NL.

 

Event #23 The Marathon $2,620 NL - Final Results

Marathom Venez

It felt like running a marathon. Okay, not really. But this five-day event lasted an entire work week, or five weekdays of extended poker.

This fetish event's price tag of $2,620 was inspired by the actual length of a Marathon... 26.2 miles. But only fools risk injury and sharting themselves to prove that they can run for several hours nonstop without anyone hunting them down as sport. Sometimes, you just gotta run, brah for no good reason other to run.

Joseph Di Rosa Rojas from Venezuela was the last one standing in Event #23 as he won the inaugural endurance race at the 2017 WSOP. Di Rosa Rojas outlasted 1,758 other “for the love of it” runners. Who would have thunk this bracelet would come down to a battle between Australia and Venezuela? When the dust settled, the Venezuelan edged out Aussie Alex Lynskey for the victory.

Joseph Di Rosa Rojas earned a payday worth $690K. You can buy a shit-ton of molly for that five-day score.

Jeff Tomlinson from Florida busted in third place, setting up the duel between Lynskey and DDR. Everyone's favorite iterant pro Faraz Jaka embarked on a deep run but went busto in sixth place. Julian Stuer missed a victory for the Germans when he was dunzo in fifth place. Mo Hawkins busted first at the final table and went out in ninth place.

Notables who went deep bust just missed the final table... Brexio Gonzalez, Pat Mahoney, Yu Li, Xixiang Luo, Sam Phillips, John Phan, Ana Marquez and Eric Baldwin.

Other notables who cashed included... Kristen Bicknell, Adrain Mateos, Maria Ho, Sam Stein, Ludovic Moryousef, Mo Dietrich, Louis Linard, Jonas Lauck, Bertrand Rosique, Lee Watkinson, Dara O'Kearny, Felipe Ramos, Earnesto Anastasio, Niall Farrel, Sebastian Pauli, Martin Staszko, Michael Gordon, Chawki Fawaz, Bob Eastbrook, Natasha Mercrier, Page McConnell, Kevin Saul, Mike Leah, Jonathan Fishman, and Matt Stout.

MoormanWinsWSOP

Cue the Doors… Chris Moorman finally shipped a bracelet. The British pro broke on thru to the other side.

Moorman posted lofty runner-up finish at the 2011 WSOP Main Event, but that was close as he ever got… until now.

Moorman faded 959 runners in this 6-max shorthanded event. Moorman previously final tabled four various events... but could never break thru to the proverbial other side… until now.

Event #28 $1,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw - Final Results

BBTDwsop

Congrats to Brian Brubaker, the Deuce to Seven Triple Draw Lowball winner. Oh, I might have forgotten to mention "Limit" in there. If he were British, the Queen would have bestowed upon him a long-ass title before knighting him for his mad Lowball skills.

Brian Brubaker faded a field of 326 Triple Draw enthusiasts to earn his first bling. Brubaker, a pro from Manhattan Beach, California, final tabled a Triple Draw event back in 2013. Alas he took third that time. It took him four years, but he finally bested his previous best performance.

Brubaker won his first-ever bracelet by defeating Brendan Taylor heads-up for the win. Taylor, a Vegas-based pro with one bracelet win, was the big stack most of the time at the final table. Alas, Brubaker edged out Taylor for the win. German soccer pro Max Kruse final tabled this event, but busted in fourth place. The brother of The Grinder a.k.a. Robert Mizrachi busted first at the final table with a seventh-place finish. Rick Fuller went out in sixth place.

Other notables going deep and cashing in this event included Oscar Johansson from Sweden, Mike Wattel, Jon Turner, Ian Johns, Shaun Deeb, Yuval Bronshtein, Chris Bjorin, Rep Porter, Mark Gregorich, Daniel Negreanu, Max Pescatori, and Ralph Rudd.
