Zac Fellows Wins Event #21, $3,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Friday, 12 June 2009

A few years ago, triple figures registering for a mixed game tournament would have been unheard of. Now with the growing popularity of other poker variants, it’s unsurprising that 452 people registered for the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E. event.

The final eight lacked big names besides Limit Hold ‘em specialist Matt Hawrilenko but it wasn’t the easiest of rides for Fellows, who took home $311,899 when he spiked a set in Hold ‘em to defeat James Van Alstyne

A 12-hour day including 90 minutes of heads-up play between the final two was concluded when Fellows flopped top set and got the money in good – his opponent was in fact drawing dead.

Fellows doubles his lifetime tournament winnings with this six-figure win as well as claiming his first WSOP bracelet.
