Doyle Brunson has played professionally for over 50 years and has managed to win 10 WSOP Gold Bracelets during this time (35 WSOP cashes in total).

Posted on Friday, June 01, 2012 by "T".

It ended up being Cory Zeidman who took home Event 4: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8 or better. For the win Zeidman received the biggest cash of his entire career ($201,559) and his very first WSOP bracelet. Zeidman previous WSOP cash occured in the very same event last year (believe it or not). Then he arrived at the final table as the chip leader as well but finished in 6th place for $30,228.

Chris Bjorin, a regular at the WSOP since the early 90s-- 2 bracelets and 62 cashes, received $124,838 for his runner-up finish but seemed quite disappointed to have missed out on his 3rd bracelet - especially since he had decent lead when only 3 players remained.
