Phillip McAllister was the last gunslinger left standing in Event #42 $3,000 NL Shootout bracelet event. He essentially won three SNGs including besting a tough final table with a lot of solid players like Faraz Jaka, Maria Ho, and Stevie Chidwick. The American domination of bracelet event came to a halt last week with a run of Europeans and British players shipping events. Chalk up another winner for the U.K. with McAllister victory.
Meanwhile, the $10K STUD 8 Championship is down to the final two tables. A bracelet will be awarded on Monday. Many notables still alive including chip leader Justin Bonomo, along with German pro George Danzer, Todd Brunson, Mike Leah, David Benyamine, Scott Clements, Eli Elezra, and David Grey.
Event #42 $3,000 NL Shootout - Final Results
The final table of 10 players returned for action for the final shootout to determine the bracelet. This event used to be one of the most popular on the schedule. Anyway, with only 400 runners, the format was a bit unique. The first round played down from 400 to 40. The next round played down from 40 to 10 on a series of 4-handed tables. The final round resumed the 10-handed format.
Stevie Chidwick busted out first at the shootout final table in tenth place. Faraz Jaka was the next one out in 8th place. Maria Ho went deep, but she busted in fourth place. She will have to wait another opportunity to win her first bracelet. Alas, when the dust settled 22-year old British pro Phillip McAllister stepped into the winner's circle as the newest champion…and yet another winner for a non-American.
