Hanh Tran, a cash-game specialist from Austria, joined a special club of poker players who shipped bracelets at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas and the WSOP Europe. During the summer Tran won a Lowball bracelet. At the King's Casino in RozVegas, Tran won Event #3 €550 PLO for a score worth €59,625. French pro Romain Lewis took third place and final tabled his fourth WSOP event of the year.


Ship it to Hanh Tran. Two times! It's not easy winning one bracelet. It's even harder to win a second one. And it's even more rare to win two bracelets in the same year. But wait, there's more... Hanh Tran pulled off another rare feat when he won a WSOP Europe bracelet and a regular WSOP bracelet in the same year.

The action continued at the swanky King's Casino in RozVegas (a.k.a. Czech Republic). This year's World Series of Poker Europe awarded its fourth bracelet. With ten events on the schedule, there are only 6 more up for grabs.

Over his career, Hanh Tran made three final tables at the WSOP and won two bracelets. Tran's first win occurred earlier this summer at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. Tran binked Event #29 $1,500 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw for his first bracelet, which paid out $117K. Tran's final table included Brian Hastings.

At the 2018 WSOPE in RozVegas, Hanh Tran faded a field of 572 players in the Omaha-Donkament. Event #3 €550 PLO was an 8-max event that created a prize pool a shade under €275K.

The 8-handed PLO final table included Romain Lewis, Florian Sarnow, Hanh Tran, Oleg Pavlyuchuk, Sebastian Obermeier, Tarek Sleiman, Manish Goenka, Michael Magalashvili.

Romain Lewis made another final table. The French pro final tabled four events in Vegas and RozVegas, but he's yet to go the distance. Lewis took second place in Big Blind Antes and PLO 6-Max. Lewis finished in third place in the $10K Big Blind Antes event and WSOPE's PLO-Donkament.

Germany's Florian Sarnow made back-to-back final tables at the WSOPE. Sarnow missed a shot at a bracelet less tan 24 hours earlier when he finished in second place in the Turbo Bounty Hunter event. Unfortuantely, Sarnow didn't go all the way in this one Sarnow was the first player out at the final table.

Michael Magalashvili was trying to become the third player from Israel to win a bracelet in RozVegas. Magalashvili's run ended in seventh place. Israelis won the first two events. Asi Moshe won his second career bling the other day with a win in Event #2. And Tamir Segal shipped the Euro-Colossus opening event.

When Romain Lewis bounced in third place, it set up a heads-up joust between Latvia's Oleg Pavlyuchuk and Austria's Hanh Tran. Pavlyuchuk could not stop Tran and he hit the bricks in second place. Pavlyuchuk earned a consolation prize worth €36,851. Not too shabby, eh?

Tran banked over $68K USD for the victory or a shade under €60K Eurobucks. Overall, Tran won $233K in WSOP events in his career or approximately $185K for both bracelet wins. Tran earned $117K for his Triple Draw bracelet.

Shaun Deeb padded his WSOP POY lead with another cash in RozVegas. Deeb has yet to make a final table, but he cashed in another event with a 38th place finish.

Chainsaw Kessler cashed in another WSOP event! Kessler is bracelet hunting and he came up short when he busted in 68th place. If he gets one more cash, there will be a parade in downtown RozVegas in his honor and the Scorpions will play a free concert in Kessler's honor.

Norbert Burkhard from Germany bubbled the final table in ninth place.

Other noteworthy names who cashed in WSOP-Europe Event #3 included... Jesus Ferguson, Jason Gray, Dutch Boyd, Guillaume Diaz, Max Pescatori, Jonas Kilian, Sergei Popov, Roland Israelashvili, Shaun Deeb, Dario Alioto, Sebastian Langrock, Jeff Madsen, Stefan Vogt, Ana Maria David, Ting Ho, Sebastian Kos, Martin Frank, Cord Garcia, Porter Lambert, Jessica Teusl.
