One more Saturday night! David Bach is not gun shy of the H.O.R.S.E. format. Some folks loathe mixed games because they have an obvious weakness or two. Not Bach. The Georgia-based pro is a mixed games guru. Bach earned his first-ever WSOP bracelet back in 2009 when he shocked the world by winning the 50K H.O.R.S.E. bracelet. Bach outlasted a monster field and a ferocious final table to win $1.2 million.
Earlier this summer, Bach won Event #11 Dealers Choice. And he's still running good. You can add a third piece of bling to his collection after Bach won Event #30 $10K H.O.R.S.E. Championship. Yup, that marked his second win this year. Tough final table too. He had to hold off a Negreanu in heat and defending champ Jason Mercier and his wonder pooch.
Bach became the first player this summer to win double bracelets. He moved up to near the top 10 in the WSOP Play of the Year leaderboard (currently led by Milly Maker champ Pablo Mariz). Man, a brah wins two pieces of bling and he's not even in the Top 5? Sometimes math can be idiotic.
Regardless... Bach won two bracelets this summer for three total. He now has $3.1M on career WSOP winnings.
Event #30 $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship - Final Results
The former pro bowler took down this third bracelet. I'm too lazy to verify his "pro" status, but Bach listed professional bowling on his WSOP bio sheet. One thing is certainly verified... David Bach is bo slouch at mixed games. All three of his career bracelets came in the variety with two in H.O.R.S.E. and the other in dealers choice. In total, Bach has over $3.1 million in career WSOP earnings.
Bach shipped his second-career bracelet and his first of this year's WSOP when he won Event #11 Dealers Choice for $119K. Overall, this was his 13th WSOP final table. Lucky 13 for Gunslinger, eh?
Daniel Negreanu made another final table! And Danny Boy whiffed. He came so close... yet so far away. He'll wait another day to win another bracelet and his prop bet anguish/sweat continues. Negreanu cashed in six events thus far and final tabled three of them. He took second in 10K Omaha8 and third place in the 10K Tag Team.
Defending HORSE champ Jason Mercier made the final table, but he busted in fifth place. Bracelet winner Andrew Brown went out in fourth place. Old schooler Don Zewin took third. Anthony Zinno bubbled the final table in ninth place.
Notables who went deep... Anthony Zinno, Dick Chase, Brian Rast, Mack Lee, Phil Wallace, Mark Gregorich, Esther Taylor-Brady, Brandon Shack-Harris, Steveie444, Aron Dermer, and Andrey Zhigalov.
