Quinn Do, a 39-year-old poker pro from El Monte, CA picked up his second gold bracelet after winning the $10,000 buy-in Dealers Choice event, a tournament that attracted a small but renowned field of players (108 entries).
Do, who took home his first bracelet in 2005 in a Limit Hold'em event, received $319,792 in prize money. It was his 17th cash at the World Series. He now has $707,507 in total WSOP earnings.
"Winning this gold bracelet was better than the first," Do said. "This one was for Mixed Games which is something I have worked on for a long time. I spent ten years playing these games so to come here and win for this event is really better for me."
The final table included a stacked lineup of well-known players and former gold bracelet winners - including Do, Rep Porter (who finished 2nd), Jeff Madsen, David Benyamine, Adam Friedman, and Paul Volpe. Non-former winners included Jake Abdalla and Jussi Nevanlinna.
