Gerald Ringe Wins WSOP Stud

Monday, 6 July 2015

There was more British bracelet glory at this year's World Series of Poker after Gerald Ringe took down the $1,500 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo event on Sunday.

The Londoner topped a field of 547 players to claim a first prize payout of $180,943 and a maiden WSOP bracelet.

There was plenty of class on show at a final table that included bracelet winners John Esposito and recent $3k HORSE winner Daniel Idema. None could match the dapperly dressed Englishman though who dominated the finale.

“Whatever I needed today, I managed to catch it,” Ringe told “Even when it looked like my opponent would scoop a big pot, I caught the perfect card and managed to split the pot. Everything went right today.”

Poker isn't even a full time occupation for Ringe whose day job is in the property industry. He's no stranger to London's high stakes games though and is a regular in the mixed game action at the Vic.
