Two more WSOP bracelets were dished out in the void between last night and the early hours of this morning (for us Europeans that is) and heading the profit chart was Ted Gillis (pictured).
After making his way through another of the bumper $1,500 NLHE events, the American grinder managed to come through the likes of Mustapha Kanit and John Hennigan to claim his first WSOP title. Indeed, not only was Gillis' victory the first time he'd felt the cold press of a gold bracelet but it was only his second cash at the WSOP. After a back-and-forth battle with Hennigan the two players finally committed their chips and as the cards were revealed it was Gillis in the lead with As 6h. As Hennigan's Qc 9h fought for survival, the Tc Th Ah 7h Ks board left the veteran without any chance of redemption and nothing more but a consolation prize of $319,993. Whilst Gillis and Hennigan were shaking hands, Kory Kilpatrick was picking up the day's second bracelet in Event #20. A 389 player field lined up for the $3,000 NLHE Shootout late last week, but by the time the likes of Taylor Paur, Phil Galfond and Chris Bell had exited the final table it was Kilpatrick who was able to thrive. A final showdown with Eric Wasserson culminated with a final hand during which Kilpatrick's Ah Js scooped the pot and a $254,891 payday for the US grinder.
