Jim Collopy WSOP bracelet

Two new WSOP bracelet winners are awarded at the 2021 WSOP while Ryan Leng, Nathan Gamble, Daniel Negreanu and Shaun Deeb are among those threatening for bracelets.

In Tuesday’s WSOP report, we take a look at these two winners as well as all the other WSOP action happening on Monday and Tuesday.

Jim Collopy takes down $3k HORSE

Jim Collopy won his second WSOP bracelet on Monday night after taking down the $3,000 HORSE. In his path to victory, Collopy outlasted a field of 282 that included Ahmed Mohamed ($107,428), Paramjit Gill ($74,346), Eli Elezra ($53,986) and Maria Ho ($39,423). Daniel Negreanu finished in 8th place with $17,526.

Collopy’s previous bracelet came during the A$1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha at the 2013 WSOP Asia-Pacific, which he said felt unique compared to this bracelet. “It always feels cool to win on a big stage, so I’d say that’s what makes it most different.”

In winning the $3,000 HORSE, Collopy has now amassed $3,267,083 in winnings over his poker career with cashes that date back to 2008, according to the Hendon Mob.

Ran Koller wins $800 Eight-Handed No Limit Hold’em Deep Stack

2,778 entered the $800 Eight-Handed No Limit Deep Stack, but it’s just Ran Koller who is the sole survivor of the event, winning his first WSOP bracelet and a first-place prize of $269,478. Koller beat fellow Israeli Ran Ilani heads-up ($166,552), followed by Florian Guimond ($124,671), Oleg Titov ($94,028) and Kris Steinback ($71,457).

The win was the biggest ever for Koller, whose previous largest victory was during a 7th place finish at the 2021 WSOP $600 No Limit Hold’em Deepstack Championship for $33,836.

“It’s amazing. I do not even have the words for it. It was surreal,” said Koller after the match.
