Brian Green from Texas outlasted 204 runners in Event #2 $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty to win $345,669 and his first career bracelet. Green had final tabled events before at the WSOP, but never made his way into the winner's circle until now. Green also denied Daniel Negreanu his seventh bracelet. Negreanu made the final table but busted in sixth place.


Ship it to Brian Green. Finally! Brian Green has been playing poker at the WSOP for a lot longer than most of the wunderkinds were even born. Green made a name for himself as a bona fide limit hold'em player at the turn of the century. This was back in the pre-boom days when the WSOP played out at the Horseshoe. He final tables the $5K Limit Hold'em event in back-to-back years with a second place and third place finish, but that's as high as he'd get. In May 2002, Green lost heads-up to Jen Harman in $5K Limit.

It would take him 17 years to finally get heads-up for another bracelet. This time he didn't back down and went all the way to the promised land.

Green's biggest score to date was a final table at the $111,111 buy-in 2016 One Drop High Roller. He took fifth place for $1.1 million.

Green won a WSOP ring in New Orleans back in 2013 when he took down a turbo event. He now has a bracelet to add to his jewelry collection.

The 2019 WSOP was off and running with the first open event on the docket with Event #2 $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty. Event #2 attracted 204 runners and a prize pool worth $1.9 million. Only the top 31 places paid out with $345K set aside to the champion.

Anatoly Filatov bubbled off the final table in tenth place. The final nine included Daniel Negreanu, who was seeking bracelet #7. Also among the final nine were Cary Katz, Brian Green, Zack Clark, Ali Imsirovic, Martijn Gerrits, Asher Conniff, Ping Liu and Loren Klein.

Cary Katz and Zack Clark were the first two to exit. Martijn Gerrits, the lone European at the final table representing Holland, busted in seventh place.

Kid Poker's deep run ended in sixth place. He missed the bling by a few spots, but it was a strong start for Negreanu in his first major event since stepping away from being a PokerStars Team Pro.

Ping Liu hit the bricks in fifth place, followed by Loren Klein in fourth place and Asher Conniff in third place. Conniff's elimination set up the heads-up bout between Ali Imsirovic and Brian Green.

Green put away Imsirovic to win the bling. For a runner-up finish, Ali Imsirovic banked $213K. Not too shabby, eh?

Green won the first bracelet of the 2019 World Series of Poker. It also marked his first bracelet of his career. Green has over $3.3 million in total tournament winnings according to Hendon Mob. He banked nearly $1.8 million in WSOP events.

Among the notables that went deep in Event #2 included... Erik Seidel, Dan Shak, David Benyamine, Nick Shulman, Ben Lamb, Ben Yu, Darren Elias, Anatoly Filatov, Daniel Zack, Craig Varnell, Maning Loeser, Byron Kaverman, Benjamin Pollak, Yong Wang, Moshin Charania, Ben Palmer, Toby Lewis, Thai Ha and Matas Cimbolas.
