Adrian Buckley and Matt Elsby turned their game a notch - WSOP 2015
Adrian Buckley and Matt Elsby have just notched their first-ever World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets. Adrian actually emerged victorious over a gigantic field size of 7,275 entrants in the $ 1,500 buy-in Millionaire Maker Championship, one of the flagship events at the WSOP this year. The 27 years-old talented poker player has made a truly unexpected yet smashing performance in this poker tournament. The Dacono native (Colorado) had had a panel of poker pros as rivals in the final table, include the likes of Mike Sexton, David Miscikowski, Erik Lindgren and Olivier Busquet. Suprisingly enough, he entered the final battle as a short stack. Still, he successfully made it through the ultimate clash against Spains Javier Zarco. Though possessing an impressive chip advantage over Adrian, Javier failed to keep pace, leaving the Dacono native surging towards the title. For his victory, not only has Adrian Buckley been awarded a gold bracelet but also the top prize of $ 1,277,193.
As for Matt Elsby, he won the Event # 19, $ 3,000 Limit Hold'em 6-Handed. This win is actually the 2nd WSOP final-table showing of the 36 years-old poker pro from Arizona. Unbeatable, he topped the events 319-player field to grab the title. In the heads-up, Elsby saw himself facing a tough rival, the France-born Gabriel Nassif. Questing for his first gold bracelet, Nassif has come a long way to the final table. However, he failed to hold off Elby, who, for his part, claimed the win for $ 231,000.
