It was a case of close but no cigar yet again for the UK as Max Silver just missed out on his first WSOP bracelet earlier today.
Despite grinding his way past more than 250 high level pros in the stacked $10,000 NLHE 6-Max event, Silver was only able to finish in the bronze medal position and take home $273,646 for his efforts.After watching the likes of current Player of the Series George Danzer, Erick Lindgren and JC Tran fall by the wayside, Silver found himself against Jeremy Ausmus and Joe Cada. The Main Event final table veterans quickly conspired to chip away at Silver until Cada finally showed him the exit after flopping top pair. With only two players left an hour-long heads-up battle ensued as both players looked to add another piece of WSOP bling to their collection. However, with the blinds steadily increasing and the night drawing in something had to give and eventually it was Ausmus who relented. In a final flurry of action all the money went in and when Ausmus revealed a pair of jacks he was loathed to see the pocket queens held by Cada. A safe board for the 2009 World Champion meant the bracelet and $670,041 went to Cada while Ausmus had to content himself with a $414,104 consolation prize. Elsewhere in the Rio, Brett Shaffer was also able to etch his name onto the WSOP Hall of Fame after busting through another bumper $1,500 NLHE event. In the final throes of the match Shaffer managed to overcome the UK's Peter Gould and seasoned grinder Matt Stout before besting Ronald Sullivan in a heads-up match to decide the fate of the bracelet and $418,435.
