2018 WSOP: Loren Klein Wins Third Bracelet in Three Years!

On Tuesday, Loren Klein won the biggest $10,000 pot-limit Omaha championship in World Series of Poker history. The tournament (Event #49: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship) attracted 476 entries and Klein, 32, received $1,018,336 in prize money and his third WSOP bracelet!

Besides Allen Cunningham and Matt Matros, Klein is the only player to have won a bracelet three years in a row in the post-Moneymaker era! Klein scored his first bracelet in a no-limit hold'em/pot-limit Omaha mixed event and his second two came in standalone pot-limit Omaha tournaments.

"It's time to get my annual bracelet," joked Klein to his friends on the rail after his win.

When asked whether winning three bracelets had changed his game, he answered: "Not a ton. The variance in getting a bracelet is pretty wild. Like, I was the same player I was three years ago before I had any bracelets."

Final Table Results:

1st: Loren Klein - $1,018,336
2nd: Rep Porter - $629,378
3rd: Brandon Shack-Harris - $433,259
4th: Jerry Wong - $303,491
5th: Ryan Hughes - $216,391
6th: Scott Bohlman - $157,097
7th: Mike Leah - $116,166
8th: Alexey Makarov - $87,522

Congratulations to the winner Loren Klein for winning his third bracelet: D sometimes it's good to leave a bit of the fumes of having won before and to be that play that does everything possible to win, because sometimes many have won before they tend to have a lot of confidence and that sometimes they tend to play against you ... Well, the best for this player and I hope someday to have a chance to play a tournament like that hahaha

With a 10k USD buy in a prize for a bit more than 1 million for the first place.
And the game was also omaha. Must have been a good game to watch live.
Although, it would have been better participating in it. Smile

Every year many tournaments run in this series WSOP and this year professional players vips ( the stars who made history in poker ) they were not lucky enough to win bracelets. What i saw here in the news, about the winners, there were many names, that won for the first time a bracelet. Anyway good job for the winner of Event 49 WSOP.

Loren? That's a unique name. I guess Loren is an androgynous name.
Congratulations to the Loren Klein for capturing his third WSOP gold bracelet and winning over $1 million! I can't imagine what it feels like to win such an enormous amount of money.
