Andrew Yeh WSOP Bracelet

Another two players were awarded WSOP bracelets on Thursday.

Late Thursday night, Andrew Yeh took down the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. to win his first WSOP bracelet against a stacked field of some of poker’s finest. In addition to winning his bracelet, Yeh also secured the $487,129 first-place prize.

In order to win the bracelet, Yeh outlasted a field of 192 entries over four days including Craig Chait heads-up and players such as Philip Long, Bryce Yockey and John Racener at the final table. Yeh’s previous best score prior to the bracelet during a third-place finish in the $10,000 Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better Championship.

In post-match comments, Yeh admitted that the fields in the $10k events are difficult to overcome.

“I feel like I’m definitely capable of winning, but in these tournaments, especially $10Ks with all of the good players, it’s really tough to navigate a field. So to be able to do that and make it here again from last year and actually do this is pretty surreal.”

Final table prizes

  • 1st – Andrew Yeh – $487,129
  • 2nd – Craig Chait – $301,068
  • 3rd – Philip Long – $209,424
  • 4th – Bryce Yockey – $148,896
  • 5th – John Racener – $108,253
  • 6th – Paul Sokoloff – $80,523
  • 7th – Mike Gorodinsky – $61,314
  • 8th – Eric Wasserson – $47,819

Phil Hui wins 3rd WSOP bracelet

The other WSOP bracelet was awarded to Phil Hui when he took down the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha on Thursday night against 1,437 entries over the course of three days. The victory was Hui’s third career WSOP bracelet, having previously won gold in the 2014 $3,000 Omaha Hi/Lo and the 2019 $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship. Hui’s win gave him $3,550,519 in live tournament winnings according to the Hendon Mob.

Hui was humbled by the win in post-match comments: “I like winning bracelets, I like winning trophies, I have my whole life. I’m happy with everything.”
