2015 WSOP: Andrew Barber Wins Event #63: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E Championship

Tags: $10, 000 H.O.R.S.E Championship, Andrew Barber.
Posted on 05 July 2015 by "T".

The $10,000 H.O.R.S.E Championship, one of poker's most prestigious tournaments, attracted a star-studded field of 204 entries this time, which generated a prize pool of $1,917,000.

Among the top 10 finishers were six gold bracelet winners (and 8 bracelet winners in the top 12), but at the end of it all it was a newcomer who stood tall as the champion, Andrew Barber.

Barber, a 32-year-old PhD student from Springfield, Illinois, collected $517,766 in prize money and his first coveted gold bracelet!

"This game has a lot of swings," Barber said. "Unless you play it long enough, you don't realize how much variance there is, so to finally get the win is great."

"This was a tough lineup, there's no doubt about that," Barber said. "But I knew I could compete. I wasn't star-struck, or anything. I had played with most of these guys before, so it wasn't new to me. I knew that with a break or two I could get here and win it."


Final table results:


OTHER IN-THE-MONEY FINISHERS:
Aside from the final table finishers, other gold bracelet winning players who cashed included - Eli Elezra (10th), Phillip Hui (11th), Barry Greenstein (12th), Brock Parker (16th), Brandon Shack-Harris (17th), and Randy Ohel (19th).

This marked the 70th career cash for Poker Hall of Fame inductee Barry Greenstein, who ranks in the top 15 all time.

FUN FACTS:
There were 205 males and 6 females in this event.
There were 154 American players and 50 players from other nations in this event. Out of 16 total countries who had participants, Russia was the nation with the second-most players - at 15.

Many congratulations to Andrew Barber on winning his first gold bracelet and what a star studded event to do it in. H.O.R.S.E. tournaments are for the truly great poker players and to win one must be amazing

Would have been nice if we learn about what is he studying right now, though. I mean being a PhD student is no kidding around - no matter what field he is on - just I was a bit curious. Of course congrats to him, HORSE is a tough cookie to crack.

Many congratulations to Andrew Barber on winning his first horse. definitely a great companion for the old school cowboy, though kind a big dog to have in your city apartment. really hope that andrew can win another poker tourney where a ranch is on offer, that would go along well with his horse.

Imagine if this tourney was true to its name and the first prize would be a herd of angry mustangs...
