Will Givens could have been forgiven for thinking that his chances of winning a WSOP bracelet this year had come and gone last week.
The American finished fourth behind Dutch Boyd $1k NLHE event but grasped his chance when opportunity knocked again.Givens outlasted a mammoth 1,841 runner field in the latest $1k NLHE tournament, added another $306,634 to his bankroll and took possession of his maiden WSOP bracelet.The Denver-based pro beat pastry chef Angela Prada-Moed to the title, sealing the deal when his second pair held against his opponent's flush draw.“This tournament I was down to five and ten big blinds,” Givens told Bluff.com. “I felt like I had the edge and wasn’t trying to get into high variance spots. I just kept chainsawing along, chainsawing along until ‘Timber!’” Event #44 - $1500 NLHE – Jordan Morgan TriumphsJordan Morgan certainly had to work hard for his first WSOP bracelet. The Oklahoma pro eventually emerged victorious after 32 levels of play and a marathon seven-hour heads up battle with Evan McNiff.The American had one foot across the rail at one stage and needed a big slice of luck to get back in contention. All in with AK against McNiff's pocket kings on a J-10-8-2 board, Morgan hit an unlikely aced on the river to resurrect his chances.It took an hour into an unscheduled fourth day for Morgan to finally claim his first bracelet when his pocket sixes held against the unfortunate McNiff's AK.
