Brock Parker Wins Third WSOP Bracelet

June 5, 2014

We see another heads up match between two previous bracelet winners, this time a two-time bracelet winner wins his third in Event #10 $10K Limit Omaha Hi-Low. Now three-time bracelet winner Brock Parker, known as a Limit Hold ‘em specialist before this event, will now be well-respected as a Limit Omaha player, as well. As an early leader in the 2014 Player of the Year race for the series after a final table finish in the $1,500 Razz event, this win further cements him as a contender.

Parker has made 10 final table finishes in WSOP events in as many years, only one of those a non-Hold ‘em tournament. And now, at a table of O8 specialists, Parker has proven himself once again, this time against fellow WSOP bracelet earner, Richard Ashby. Ashby’s previous one bracelet comes from a Stud event, though he was appearing in his fourth career OHL final table, which also included two female players, Shirley Rosario, who lasted to 4th place, and Melissa Burr, who lasted to 8th place. These ladies are the second and third women to make a final table this year, following Vanessa Selbst, who won her third bracelet this year.

Other notable final tablists in this event include Dan Kelly, also a previous bracelet earner. This is Kelly’s third cash in this event, finishing 12th in 2012 and 20th last year. This year, he finishes in 9th place.

As the second of 13 $10K championship events this year, this event attracted 178 players that amassed a prize pool worth $1.67+ million split between the top 18 finishers, which included a slew of other bracelet winners including 17th-place finisher and five-time bracelet winner Jeff Lisandro; 18th place-finisher Perry Friedman; 14th-place finisher Andrew Brown; and 10th-place finisher Eli Elezra, who also racked up some POY points.
