Two Team 888 Poker Members Win WSOP Bracelets

June 21, 2011

Out of 19 events completed so far at the 2011 WSOP, two bracelets have been secured by Team 888 Poker. The first victory for Team 888 Poker came in the 14th event, the $3,000 Limit Hold ‘em when Tyler Bonkowski took the bracelet. Later in the series, Darren Woods took event #19, the $2,500 Limit Hold ‘em 6-Handed.

Woods won his bracelet off a field of 353 poker players, and it took him three days to earn it. In addition to the bracelet, he took more than $213,000 in prize money. The final heads-up was between Woods and female player, Kim Nguyen. He quickly dominated the table and eventually after only an hour and a half, Woods was deemed winner. His hole cards, 4H and 2H ended up being a better hand over Nguyen’s KS and 2C. The turn, KH, 4D, 6S, JS, saw Nguyen favored to win, but the river landed Woods a 4C giving Woods trip 4s for the win.

The future looks bright for Team 888 Poker, and many of the members of this robust team plan on winning a couple more bracelets this year at the World Series of Poker. Shane Warne, Team 888 Poker Team Captain, will compete in the Main Event which begins on July 9th, and he’s a good possible for a final table member for Novemeber.
