The $10,000 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball Championship always attract a star-filled field of poker players. But despite the tough competition the same player has emerged victorious in this event two years in a row.

In 2014, Tuan Le bested 120 entries to win $355,324. Yesterday, he received $322,756 in prize money for overcoming a field of 109 players over three days of play. According to WSOP.com, he's the first player to repeat as champion in the same WSOP bracelet event since 2009.

Le, who now has two WSOP bracelets under his belt, topped a final table packed with three gold bracelet winners, Phil Galfond, Rep Porter and Calvin Anderson. His toughest opponent, however, was Max Casal who fought back from a big chip deficit to make it close to even at one point, before being eliminated in the sixth hour on the third and final day.

"This year's victory is like ten times as big as last year," Le said told WSOP reporters. "When you defend a title, that's a totally different ball game. It's a statement. Anyone can get a rush one time and win, but to do it again, makes a statement. For me, last year was about the money. This year was about the bracelet."

This is quite a phenomenal achievement to win the same event two years running. Tuan Le must be some player to do this because there were some pretty big names in this tourney

This is a good news, that shows in poker the same guy or player can win in the same tournaments methods, in the same years or one year later.
This is a good thing not only for the poker, but also to the game that he won, the limit 2-7 triple draw lowball, and maybe call more players there.
Is a achivement that is not easy to do, and this guy did it 2 years in a row, congratulations for him.
And for me as a person on poker community for a while, not surprise me this happens, after see other player all must get the same thing in other tournaments of poker, like the november 9 of last year.

Honestly it's pretty hard therefore not really common to manage ending up in the final table on the same tourey twice in a row let alone win it so this guy deserves all the pat on the back he's getting so far. Amazing achievement.
