Marc Naalden  Wins Event #38 - $2k LHE.

Tuesday, 23 June 2009

This event marks only the second bracelet to go to Holland, and what a way to take it! Marc Naalden completely dominated the final table of Event #38, holding over half the chips in play while seven-handed and mercilessly eliminating his opponents.

Daniel Negreanu made a deep run but fell short in 26th place so from that moment on it was all to play for as the Limit Hold ‘em specialist was out. However, Naalden too has Limit Hold ‘em as his game of choice and showed his mettle in his first WSOP bracelet win.

The only time he lost the chip lead since Negreanu’s elimination was during a high-octane heads-up showdown between Naalden and Steven Cowley. Eventually after seeing his stack dwindle, Cowley pushed with A5s. Naalden made the call with Q8 and hit top pair to take it down – easy as pie.

Naalden has had a phenomenal 2009 as he won the PokerNews Cup Alpine tournament before taking a tenth-place finish at the EPT Monte Carlo and now a WSOP win. Top bombing!
