WSOP Bracelet #4 for Jeff Madsen

WSOP Bracelet #4 for Jeff Madsen

Wednesday, 17 June 2015

Jeff Madsen enjoyed a late birthday bonus after winning his fourth World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet on Wednesday.

The American pro entered his 30s just a week ago and marked the occasion in style by topping a quality 480-runner field in the $3k PLO Hi-Lo Championship event.

Madsen pocketed a first prize of $301,314 after working his way through a final table that included David 'ODB' Baker and Ireland's John O'Shea.

Earning a fourth WSOP bracelet at such a tender age puts Madsen in some pretty elite company. Only Phil Hellmuth, Allen Cunningham and Stu Ungar had managed to bag a quartet of bracelets before they'd reached thirty.

“I’ve always tended to be a streaky player,” Madsen told after clinching the title. “But as I get older I am trying to be more consistent….As for which (WSOP) win is the best, the first win is better because it gives you money and confidence to keep on playing. So, I would say the first win.”

The latest win takes his WSOP earning up to an impressive $2,650,499.
