John Juanda Denies Phil Hellmuth Twelfth WSOP Bracelet [VIDEO]
Juanda overcame the chip disadvantage to win over 360,000 dollars and the coveted bracelet in the $10k No-Limit Deuce-to-Seven Lowball Championship. Juanda, a poker great in his own right, now owns five WSOP bracelets and is such company as Phil Ivey, Scotty Nguyen and Chris ‘Jesus’ Ferguson whom all own five bracelets each.
Aside from taking down Hellmuth, Juanda impressively outplayed a final table that also consisted of 2004 Main Event winner, Greg Raymer and other bracelet winners, Nick Schulman, Richard Asbhy, Steve Sung, Hasan Habib and David Baker. Twenty one WSOP bracelets in total were being represented at this final table, including two former world champions. Talk about a STACKED final table. Not to take anything away from one of the most amazing final table take downs I’ve read about in Juanda’s performance, but am I the only one that can’t wait to see “The Poker Brat” metldown when it hits TV?
