2014 WSOP: Brian Yoon Wins His Second Bracelet
2014 WSOP, 8-handed, Brian Yoon, Josh Arieh, Michael The Grinder Mizrachi, Sam Trickett.
Posted on 19 June 2014 by "T".
The $5,000 buy-in event #35: No-Limit Hold'em Eight Handed drew a field of 550 runners when it kicked off 4 days ago. The 8 players that reached the final table had a combined 21 WSOP final tables and three gold bracelets. After several hours of battle and a heads-up match that only lasted 19 hands, Brian Yoon stood tall as the winner and received his second bracelet.
Yoon is probably best known for his win of the Little One for One Drop event last year. That time he defeated 4,756 players to win more than $660,000. This time he received $663,341 by defeating a much smaller but extremly though field of 550 players. Here are some of the players that made it deep in this tournament and Yoon had to overcome: Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi (44th), 2010 Main Event Champ Jonathan Duhamel (37th) bracelet winner Nick Schulman (26th) and 2012 Big One for One Drop runner-up Sam Trickett (11th).
Final table results:
1st: Brian Yoon - ($633,341)
2nd: Josh Arieh - ($391,575)
3rd: Josh Berman - ($246,169)
4th: Ardit Kurshumi - ($176,684)
5th: Mustapha Kanit - ($128,862)
6th: Dan Smith - ($95,515)
7th: Timo Pfutzenreuter - ($71,940)
8th: Tony Cousineau - ($55,034)

| He beat some very good and well known players in this tournament and an extremely nice cash.|
I have noticed that quite a big amount of the bracelets seem to be going to players who already have bracelets,obviously experience helps but with the high fields and a lot of new,young players always coming through I thought there could be more players less well known winning.

| Hi, everybody.|
There is nothing eternal in our life. Everything changes. New players come. Some leave without having sustained the competition without having reached any heights. And some reach the end of battle and become stars (poker, soccer, etc.).
Nobody could predict such defeat of Spain in the present FIFA World Cup and for Brian Yoon probably it is its hour of triumph.
All of good luck.

| Wow huge difference between the first and the second twice as much winnings, so that why i tell my friend and my self when you at the final table go for the wins as it can be the difference between a lot of money and breaking even. So congratulations to Brian Yoon for his second bracelet, hope he keeps it up and keeps updating us with good news. He is good and will be better in the future!|

| Many congratulations to Brian Yoon on winning this event and this looks, by far, the most difficult final table so far with so many well known and successful players on it. Well done again|

| Congratulations to him, it's good that we heard of many players that won some events last year came back this year and won other events |
It's funny that this year after a much smaller field he managed to win more than last year

| To win only one bracelet was a dream, but a second time was real great for this player. And against 550 other players it was not only a lucky run, it shows perfect poker skills. And now we can wait for the field of the november nine this year...|
