2015 WSOP: Paul Michaelis Wins Event #8 - $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Posted on 08 June 2015 by "T".

24-year-old student Paul Michaelis from Germany outlasted a field of 639 players to become the first international bracelet winner of the 2015 World Series of Poker. Michaelis, who currently resides in Vienna, Austria, received $189,818 and his first WSOP gold bracelet for his first place finish.

"I was running insane basically. I had a straight flush against a nut flush, I had a couple sets. My bluffs worked out. Everything worked perfectly actually,"  Michaelis told WSOP reporters following the victory.

Besides runner-up Tom Marchese (almost $10 million in live tournament earnings), notables to earn cash in this event included gold bracelet winners Tristan Wade (11th) and Eric Baldwin (18th), as well as 2012 Big One for One Drop winner, Antonio Esfandiari (45th).

About time someone from outside the US won a bracelet and good to see a Brit winning a nice cash.I am surprised that there are so few foreigners but maybe they will be joining the WSOP events nearer to the main event.

Yeah, well pot limit hold'em might not be a biggest playermagnet on the WSOP schedule even for the foreigners who went to play there. Also way too many side event this year to keep things interesting, so they might only start in the ones where they see some chance actually cashin' big.
