Anthony Zinno WSOP Bracelet

Three new WSOP bracelet winners on Monday including Anthony Zinno winning his third bracelet. Other winners include Vladimir Peck and DJ Alexander.

We take a look at these victories as well as all the ongoing action heading into Tuesday.

Anthony Zinno wins $10k Stud Championship, denying Hellmuth his 16th WSOP bracelet

Anthony Zinno took home his 3rd WSOP bracelet after coming ou on top of the $10,000 Stud Championship for $182,872. In his path to victory, Zinno battled an impressive final table that included James Chen ($113,024), Jose Paz-Gutierrez, Jack McClelland, Stephen Chidwick and Jason Gola. In winning the bracelet, he also denied Phil Hellmuth his chance at his 16th WSOP bracelet — at least for now — after Hellmuth busted in 4th place to win a still-respectable $54,730.

Zinno, who has amassed near $10.5 million in live tournament winnings, has previously won bracelets in the 2015 $25k High Roller Pot Limit Omaha for $1,122,196 and the 2019 $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better.

In post-match comments, Zinno noted that traditionally he has not been a Stud specialist. “It’s unreal because Stud is one of the games that I’ve only recently been working on,” said Zinno. “It’s very important to me to prove to myself that the hard work I’ve been putting in the mixed games pays off.”

Vladimir Peck wins $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball

Vladimir Peck beat Venkata Tayi heads-up on Monday afternoon to win the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball for his first gold bracelet and a $134,390 first place. Tayi won’t be empty-handed though as he will take home an $83,056 consolation prize for 2nd place. Other top finishers include Joao Vieira ($57,558), Aaron Rodgers (no, not that Aaron Rodgers) for $40,443 and Brian Yoon ($28,818).

Peck has now accumulated $450k in lifetime winnings according to the Hendon Mob. His previous best came all the way back in 2008 when he finished 1st in the Borgata Summer Poker Open $1,000 No Limit Hold’em for $109,040.

DJ Alexander wins GG Poker Flip and Go event

DJ Alexander took down his first WSOP bracelet after coming out on top of the first-ever $1,000 GG Poker Flip and Go WSOP event. Alexander also wins a $180,665 first place prize.

144 remain in $1,500 Eight Game Mix 6-handed

On Monday, the $1,500 buy-in Eight Game Mix 6-handed got underway with 484 players buying into the event. By the end of action, just 144 players remained with Sachin Bhargava holding the chip lead with notables such as Michael Mizrachi and David Williams still alive.
