Australian pro Kahle Burns won his first bracelet with a victory in 2019 WSOP Europe Event #8 €25,500 Platinum High Roller. Burns banked a score worth €596,883 for outlasting a final table that included WSOP Main Event champ Hossein Ensan, Sam Trickett, Tim Adams, Alex Foxen, and WSOP POY Leader Robert Campbell. Burns knocked out Sam Trickett in second place and denied Trickett's decade long quest to finally win a bracelet.


A couple more events wrapped up at the King's Casino for the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe. Aussie pro Kahle Burns finally stepped into the winner's circle for the first time at a WSOP event with a big win in WSOPE Event #8 €25,500 Platinum High Roller.

If you want to talk about tough final tables, then look no further than WSOPE Event #8 €25,500 Platinum High Roller. The final eight included 2019 WSOP Player of the Year Leaderboard leader Robert Campbell, Alex Foxen, Tim Adams, Sam Trickett, Kahle Burns, and the current WSOP Main Event World Champion Hossein Ensan from Germany. Ensan was on a mission to prove his WSOP Main Event title was no fluke. He went fairly deep the Platinum High Roller before his run good vanished in third place.

In total, WSOPE Event #8 €25,500 Platinum High Roller attracted 83 runners. Only the top 13 places paid out of the €1.97 million prize pool. Most of the cheesecake was left up top to the champion.

The final eight in the 25K Platinum High Roller included Hossein Ensan, Hakim Zoufri, Kahle Burns, Tim Adams, Robert Campbell, Alex Foxen, and Anton Morgenstern.

Aussie pro Robert Campbell and 2019 WSOP POY leader busted first at the Platinum High Roller final table. He cashed for €59,189, but it's those juicy POY points that were vital in maintaining his lead.

American pro Alex Foxen missed out on a bracelet with a sixth place finish. Canadian pro Tim Adams went out right after Foxen. Hakim Zoufri from Holland busted in fourth place, which paid out €177K.

With three to go, Kahle Burns was still alive along with British pro Sam Trickett and the Main Event champ from Germany, Hossein Ensan.

Ensan's run ended when he took King-Queen into battle against Burns' Ace-ten. Neither player improved but Burns won the pot with Ace-high. Ensan hit the bricks in third place, but banked €251,837 or roughly $280 USD. Not too shabby, eh?

Burns led 49.4M to Trickett's 33.6M when heads up began. Both players were seeking their first bracelet victory, but one of them would miss out while the other would finally get to hoist the bracelet over their heads and rejoice to the poker gods.

Trickett seized the lead when he turned a straight with 9-8. Burns rallied back. He pretty much decimated Trickett when his Carte Dame de piqueCarte Dame de carreau held up against Trickett's AdCarte Dame de cœur. Trickett was left with just 2M against Burns' 81M monster stack. Burns finally put away Trickett for the win.

Trickett earned a runner-up share worth €368,899 or roughly a heady $420K USD. Not too shabby, bruv?

Kahle Burns finally broke through to the other side. He banked a first-place payout worth €597K or approximately $644K USD.

Sam Trickett got heads up for the bracelet, which is a big deal if you know his origin story. The British pro is one of the best ever from the UK, but he had never won a bracelet. The shiny bling eluded him despite binking over $11.3 million in WSOP earnings. Trickett came close a couple of times before including a second-place finish at the $1 million buy-in 2012 WSOP Big One for One Drop. Trickett won $10.1 million for that deep run, which pretty much put him on the map, when he took second place.

Two years earlier at the 2010 WSOP, a young Trickett missed a chance to win his first bling when he finished second place in the $5K NL event. Aside from 2010 and 2012, Trickett never got close to a bracelet victory… until the 2019 WSOP Europe.

Trickett could not pull off the victory at the Platinum High Roller in RozVegas and the bracelet eluded him once again.

Robert Campbell headed into the WSOPE at RozVegas with the overall lead in the 2019 Player of the Year race. He won two bracelets this summer at the Rio with victories in $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw and $10,000 Stud Hi/Lo. Campbell came into the WSOPE with a slight lead over Shaun Deeb in second place and Kid Poker in third place.

Campbell cashed in three events in RozVegas, with his deepest run in the Platinum High Roller with a final table appearance and an 8th place finish. After nine WSOPE events at the King's Casino in RozVegas, Campbell continues to hold the overall POY lead. Time is running out if Kid Poker or Deeb have any intentions of catching him.

So far at the 2019 WSOPE, Shaun Deeb cashed in three events, but nothing better than 13th place. Negreanu cashed in four out of nine events. Kid Poker's deepest run came in the Platinum High Roller when he busted in tenth place.
