Troha Wins Third WSOP Bracelet

The 2024 World Series of Poker has already been filled with some great stories, and there have been a number of repeat winners. That was the case over the weekend as Sean Troha was able to cash in again with another impressive win. 

Troha has now won three career WSOP Gold Bracelets, and all of these wins have come since 2022. He has made his mark in Pot-Limit Omaha style games, and that was how he was able to win his third bracelet over the weekend. 

His most recent win came in the $10,000 pot-limit Omaha eight-or-better championship, and he was able to win over $536,000. All three of this gold bracelets have been in some sort of pot-limit games, and he is a player to watch every single time that this game is on the schedule. 

With more of these tournaments still to come, Troha could actually find a way to get his fourth career bracelet before the end of 2024. It’s never easy to win a WSOP tournament, but Troha just continues to ride this wave of momentum to big wins. 

Troha Takes Down Legends

There were only 259 entries in this event, but there were some legends of the sport that were in the mix. The total prize pool was just slightly more than $2.4 million, and the top 39 players were able to walk away with some cash. 

Phil Ivey was one of the players in the mix in this event, and he has won 10 gold bracelets throughout his career. While Ivey was not able to get close to the final table, there were some other previous winners that got in that mix. 

Troha had some work to do as he was in second place in total chips when there were just nine players remaining. Tyler Brown was in the chip lead when there were just nine players remaining, and he also made the first elimination at the final table. 

Yuri Dzivielevski was looking for his fifth gold bracelet in this tournament, but he had to settle for fourth place after losing a big hand to Tyler Brown. It was Brown that also made the next elimination, and that allowed him to double up on chips over Troha before heads up action. 

It was a slow process for Troha to get the chip lead back, but he got extremely aggressive when things got tight. Brown just came up a bit short on the final hand, but still walked away with more than $350,000. 

Massive Events Coming

While the 2024 WSOP has already gotten off to a fast start, there are still some big events that are coming in the next couple of weeks. Players are already starting to get things ready for the Main Event, but there will be some other no-limit tournaments on the horizon. 

Troha has already made a name for himself so far this year, and that will lead to some great races in the POY race as well.
