Things didn't go well for Benny Glaser when he travelled to Las Vegas last year for his very first World Series of Poker. Despite entering several events, he failed to make the money once.

Things are looking much brighter this year, though, given the fact that he's the champion of Event #33: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball! Glaser, 26, received $136,215 and a coveted gold bracelet for topping a field of 388 entries over 3 days.

"It means a lot to win it," Glaser said about his first victory. "The prestige and the accomplishment of this - it's surreal."

"I ran really good at the end," he added. "I got a lot of cards and it seemed (Brock Parker) missed his draws. I ran good at just the right time."

Final table results: 


There were 376 males and 12 females who entered this event (3.1 percent).

The average age of participants was 38.7 years.

Unfazed by the disappointment of last year when he did not cash once, this year is quite a bit better now, as Glaser has accomplished what less than .1 percent of all poker players who enter events manage to do, by winning a coveted WSOP gold bracelet. Even more satisfying, Glaser won an event loaded with talent and proved that he belongs in the discussion of serious contenders, especially in lowball-related games.

Great to see a player from the United Kingdom pick up a bracelet and it is still apparent that the International players are still quite few at the moment.Hopefully the main event will bring in more non US players.

Very nice win in a field like that. $1,500 buy in allows a lot of players to give it a try so this was no easy field at all. Funny to realize there were so few women playing this event, their presence at big wvents still jave alot of ups and downs in terms of number.

Hey Fakiry....I have noticed the number of females seemed to have dropped this year,in this event maybe not to be expected but in most events the numbers are still around 5% average and after the success of quite a few lady players I thought they would be on the rise.
I think sites should be promoting women that actually play good poker not just ones that are young and good looking.

Honestly women probably not counting 2-7 trip lowball as their favourite type of poker anywhere in the world so I was really not surprised about their low participation in this. Their overall turnout on this year's WSOP was down of course - now that is something worth to look after 2 finding the real reasons.
