2021 wsop bracelets

Dylan Linde breaks his WSOP gold bracelet drought with a win in the $1,500 Mixed Omaha, while events such as the Millionaire Maker and Ladies No Limit Hold’em Championship get close to crowning winners.

We take a look at these WSOP events as well as all the ongoing action in Wednesday’s WSOP update.

Dylan Linde wins $1,500 Mixed Omaha Hi/Lo

Dylan Linde has cashed in WSOP events 85 times but has never taken home a gold bracelet. That all changed on Tuesday night, when Linde won his first WSOP bracelet after taking down the $1,500 Mixed Omaha Hi/Lo. In addition to the gold bracelet, Linde will take home $170,269 in cash. Linde outlasted 641 players after 3 days to secure the victory, including beating Hernan Salazar ($105,235) heads-up, Scott Abrams ($71,651), David Matsumoto ($49,733) and Damjan Radanov ($35,204).

In post-match comments, Linde said it felt fantastic to finally win WSOP gold. “Finally winning a bracelet feels good but doing it in mixed games is great.”

Linde, who has won $4.7 million in lifetime tournament winnings, previously came closest to winning a WSOP bracelet during his 4th place finish in the 2018 $1,500 No Limit Shootout.
