anthony denove wsop bracelet

A trio of poker players win WSOP bracelets on Tuesday with even more WSOP events advancing.

We take a look at these wins including all the ongoing action in Wednesday’s report from the 2021 WSOP.

Anthony Denove wins $1,000 Double Stack, Jeff Platt 4th finishes 4th

After four days of players and outlasting 3,991 entries, Anthony Denove is the winner of Event #43, the $1,000 Double Stack No Limit Hold’em to win his first WSOP bracelet, and an impressive first-place prize of $446,983. In his path to the bracelet, Denove also went through David Guay ($276,269), Timothy Little ($210,004) and poker commentator Jeff Platt, who finished fourth with a $160,662 payday, the largest of his poker career.

For Denove’s part, it was by far his biggest ever tournament cash. His previous best came during a 137th place finish in the $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Millionaire Maker earlier this month when he won a 137th place prize of $6,330. In post-match comments, Denove said that he knew he had his work cut out for him as he went into the final day.

“I knew a lot of those players would not be making any mistakes in a lot of spots. I try not to be too conscious of it, which helps keep my expectations in check.”

Jeff Platt, who finished in 4th was thankful for the support that he received throughout the tournament:

Tommy Lee wins 2nd bracelet in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship

Tommy Le won the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship for the second time with a victory on Tuesday night, outlasting 344 entries over three days to win his second overall bracelet. With the victory, Le wins a $746,477 first-place prize and eclipses $2 million if lifetime WSOP earnings. Following Lee, were some big payouts in Jordan Spurlin ($461,360), Chris Sandrock ($324,800), Artem Maksimov ($232,236), Jeremy Ausmus ($168,689) and Eli Elezra ($124,508).

Le, who is a Californian entrepreneur, won his first $10k PLO bracelet in 2017. During the prior year, he finished in 3rd place in the same event. He was understandably thrilled with the victory after the win.

“I feel like I just won a bracelet and it’s the best feeling in the world. It’s amazing, I love the WSOP and come every year. I think it’s an awesome event and I really play because I love the game.”

Alexandre Reard takes down $5,000 Freezeout

France’s Alexandre Reard is the winner of Event #47, the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em Freezeout to win his first WSOP bracelet and the first-place prize of $428,694. Reard, who held the lead for the entire final table, outlasted 421 entries over the course of three days to take home the prize.

Although the win is Reard’s first WSOP bracelet, he is no stranger to the world of poker. Prior to the win, Reard had accumulated $3 million in live winnings, which included two WSOP circuit rings. He hopes that this bracelet is the first of many.

“I really wanted and needed that bracelet. It’s not an outcome but more a beautiful step in my career, and I hope for many more.”
