A weekend of WSOP action saw British player Matt Perrins claim a bracelet for winning the $5,000 buy-in no-limit hold‘em Event #57 while the 10,000 buy-in main event also got underway.
British success at this year’s WSOP might not have been as abundant as in previous years but Saturday saw one of the nation’s best young grinders claim his second piece of poker bling.Having claimed his first bracelet in 2011 in the $1,500 two-to-seven no-limit lowball event, Perrins managed to finish on top once again. After making his way past more than 750 players, the Manchester native put in a commanding performance on the final table to beat American Arthur Pro heads-up and claim $792,275.While Perrins was downing drinks with his friends on the rail, Eli Elezra was busy denying Daniel Negreanu another WSOP title. The veteran pro managed to weave his way through a stacked final table that included the likes of Michael Mizrachi, Scott Seiver, David Baker and David Chui to take the two-to-seven triple-draw limit lowball Event #59 title and its $173,236 prize.With bracelets being decided on Saturday, Sunday saw the opening day of the WSOP main event get underway. Almost 1,000 players lined up for the $10,000 buy-in affair and it is unknown grinder Evan Panesis leading the way ahead of more established names such as Olivier Busquet, Phil Galfond and Mike Matusow after ten levels of action.
