Gal Yifrach Wins First Gold Bracelet in 2018 WSOP $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed

Gal Yifrach, a Los Angeles-based entrepreneur and recreational poker player, claimed last night his first WSOP gold bracelet for taking down Event #28: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed of this year’s edition of the popular series. Aside from the gold piece, Yifrach also collected his largest-ever poker payout of $461,798 for topping the tournament’s 868-strong field.

His triumph in the WSOP came a little over a year after the player captured a gold piece from the WSOP Circuit. Back at The Bicycle, Yifrach entered a WSOP Circuit $3,250 High Roller to win it and collect his first gold ring from the series.

Speaking to WSOP staff last night, Yifrach said that he usually does not play much of a tournament poker and that tables where higher-stakes cash games are played are where he could be seen more often. He also pointed out that he does not play professionally. With a gold ring and now a gold bracelet, he has clearly been doing very well for a non-professional.

The player said he was quite comfortable with the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max’s structure as it allowed for a lot of hands to be played, something that is typical for cash games.

The tournament was scheduled as a three-day one, but it took eventually a fourth additional day for it to be sealed. On Day 3, Yifrach took the lead during four-handed play and was really hoping that he would be able to end the tournament on that day and as the winner.

He pointed out that he felt he played very well and had really nice hands coming his way, which further helped him lock the title. However, despite his own efforts to finish the job on Day 3, action had to be extended with three players left in contention.

Final Day of Action

Yifrach came into Day 4 as the chip leader and with massive advantage over his two remaining opponents – James Mackey and Gary Hasson. The three players battled it out for nearly 50 hands before a player got busted.

Hasson was that unfortunate one after clashing against the eventual winner. Action sped up quite a bit after Hasson’s elimination. The two-handed duel between Yifrach and Mackey kicked off with the former holding nearly two times more chips than his final opponent.

However, over the course of just seven hands, Mackey managed to even the stacks and put Yifrach into big danger. On the final hand of the tournament, the two players went all in, Mackey tabling pocket tens to Yifrach’s [As][8h]. A [8d][6h][2c][2s][8c] board secured Yifrach with a full house and the tournament title. A second gold bracelet thus eluded Mackey. The player took home a consolation prize of $285,377 for running deep into the event.

As mentioned above, the $3,000 buy-in six-max tournament drew a field of 868 entries who generated a prize pool of $2,343,600. The money was split into payouts for the top 131 finishers.

John Hennigan Wins 2018 WSOP H.O.R.S.E. Championship for Fifth Gold Bracelet

John Hennigan just won his fifth gold bracelet from the WSOP after four days of grueling poker action in this year’s $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. championship. The player was also awarded $414,692 for outlasting a pack of 166 entries who put to the test his skills in not just one but five different poker games.

A quiet and composed player, Hennigan remained true to himself in that tournament, as well. When asked how he felt after becoming just one of 25 players in WSOP’s history to have won five gold pieces, the player said that he was not too preoccupied with his accomplishment, although five indeed felt better than four.

As mentioned above, this year’s edition of the H.O.R.S.E. championship drew 166 entries who generated a prize pool of $1,560,400. The top 25 finishers got paid. Poker celebrities such as Daniel Negreanu, Chris Ferguson, Shaun Debb, and Jason Mercier, who won the tournament back in 2016, were among those to get busted before the money bubble burst on Day 2.

The event was planned to be played over three days, but the final two players – Hennigan and his heads-up opponent David Baker, decided that they would need a rest before completing their match, so play was extended into an additional fourth day. Both players went a long way before reaching that final stage of the game.

Iraj Parvizi Puts Up Terrific Show

UK-based player Iraj Parvizi entered the eight-handed final table as the chip leader. The player himself said jokingly several times throughout the final table that he was an amateur facing top pros. For a while, the player was dominating action, playing aggressively and putting great pressure on his opponents.

Hennigan recalled shortly after the event’s end that Parvizi proved to be a big trouble for almost everyone at the table, including for the eventual champion himself. Hennigan went on to say that it was actually only Baker who managed to keep his footing amid Parvizi’s attacks.

The UK player eventually exited in fourth place. Lee Salem left next. The player began three-handed play as the chip leader, but quickly lost his momentum and the last of his chips to the two remaining players.

Hennigan and Baker battled throughout the final level of the night, but could not determine the champion and eventually decided to call it a night and resume play on the next day. Baker was the short stack at that point. On the final day of action, the player managed to double several times to keep himself and his significantly smaller stack afloat, but a Limit Hold’em hand eventually saw him bust in second place for $256,297.

On the final hand in play, Baker went all in for his last 65,000 with [Ad][6s] to his opponent’s [Jc][3h]. The board ran out [10s][3s][2h][Qh][Qc] to put an end to the tournament.
