In total, Kilpatrick bested a field of 389 players over three days of play to capture his first gold bracelet and $254,891 in prize money!

Dominik Nitsche Wins Event #21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

On May 22, Dominik Nitsche took down this year's National Champion in Atlantic City for $352,800. Today, less than a month after winning his second bracelet, he scored a third one!

The German poker pro bested a field of 2,043 players over three days of play in Event #21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em to win his third bracelet, plus $335,659 in prize money! He now has well over $2 million in WSOP career earnings (19 cashes) and is the youngest 3-time bracelet winner in WSOP history!

"I have been playing poker for seven years," Nitsche told WSOP. "At this rate, I really think I can catch Hellmuth (who has 13 wins, to date). Of course, he and Phil Ivey are great players so to be talked in the same breath as them is really something for me. I will just say I am really proud to come to Las Vegas where I have enjoyed a lot of success over the years."

Final table results:

1st: - Dominik Nitsche - $335,659
2nd: - Dave D'Alesandro - $208,931

Chris Wallace Wins Event #22: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Not less than 200 players entered the fifth $10,000 buy-in event at the 2014 WSOP, and just as many expected several big names made it on to the final table (see results bellow).

The fact is that some of the eight finalists had already won a combined 6 gold bracelet and several million dollars in earnings. Well, funnily enough, the only player with no final table experience in the past ended up winning the tournament, Chris Wallace. Wallace defeated Randy Ohel in a short heads up match to earn his first bracelet on his first ever final table in a major tournament. Besides that, he received $507,614 in prize money!

Final table results:

1st: Chris Wallace $507,614

Dominik Nitsche sounds like one hell of a player and to win two bracelets in one World Series of Poker is an achievement and half. Will he ever catch Phil Hellmuth? I dont know
 klash2311/06/2014 13:39:34 GMT
At the age of 23 to have 3 bracelets and close to $4 million in winnings is a brilliant achievement.
It will be hard to catch Hellmuth with the tournaments having so many entrants but you never know.
 Heskor11/06/2014 14:47:51 GMT
Haha why not catch up to Hellmuth one day there will be somebody who will break the record it might be this year or another year with new faces coming in but records are here to be broken so i will be happy to see them broken. You never know what will it be in 50 years, there might say somebody who will break Nadal Tennis records by going 15 years in a row winning!

Dominik is a great player, I remember watching him like 3 years ago in some event.

But he changed his haircut since then. (now it is much better imho) Big Smile Big Smile
