The list of great players who’ve never won a bracelet is a long one. Think of Bloch, Hansen, Antonius, Durrrr, ElkY. There’ll be no millstone hanging round novice Tony Veckey’s neck though as he marked his WSOP debut by winning the bracelet.Veckey, playing in his first ever World Series tournament outlasted a bumper field of 2,818 runners to claim the $673,276 first prize. The software engineer had limited expectations heading into the event, just hoping to make the money. Commenting on why he wanted to play the WSOP he said “I came out this year because I liked the photos of all the money you see on TV”. He’s now got plenty to look at.After 11 hours of play Veckey beat Jason Wheeler heads up, holding a flopped straight to Wheeler’s top pair top kicker. The turn and river didn’t change the outcome and Veckey was crowned champion.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1 Tony Veckey $673,2762 Jason Wheeler $418,1223 Joseph Chaplin $276,0294 Sergey Konkin $195,2135 Andrew Malott $147,1316 Christopher Bonita $117,3587 Christopher DeMaci $98,9338 David Jaoui $87,8559 Miha Remic $81,970
