2018 WSOP: Event #12: $1,500 Dealers Choice 6-Handed won by Jeremy Harkin for $129K

American poker player Jeremy Harkin outlasted a player field of 406 entrants, finally earning his very first WSOP bracelet in his entire poker career and a nice sum of $129,882 as his prize money on Event #12: $1,500 Dealers Choice 6-Handed.

Harkin had been participating at the WSOP events every year since 2003, and before this year's Event #12, he was beginning to lose hope that his dream of winning a bracelet will never come true.

He said after he won, "Everything seemed to click for the last few days."

Harkin's journey in this event had not been easy, but he did very well under pressure when he faced some of the most respected mixed game players such as Mike Leah, Jeff Lisandro, Chris Klodnicki and John Hennigan. He said, "This is a chance to play and see how I stack up against these guys. I just kinda visualized it. I thought I was playing well. If it didn't work out, it didn't work out."

The heads-up match between Jeremy Harkin and Frankie O'Dell lasted for more than two hours, with the lead switching back and forth. The key to Harkin's victory came when O'Dell, who was selecting stud-8, then shifted to Omaha-8, a game wherein he won his two bracelets. However, it turns out that Omaha-8 is also Harkin's forte and in the end the game change went straight in his favor. Harkin defeated O'Dell in a hand of Big O.

Harkin admitted, "Honestly, I was glad when Frank changed from playing stud games, ‘cause I'm not used to playing those games short-handed or even in the tournaments."

It is very good that his dream has come true and for Jeremy Harkin from my point of view it matters more the bracelet than the amount of money. Many dream of bracelets, but only a few do that. The amount of money is not so impressive and i think he will play other tournaments as well in this series.

Congratulations to Jeremy on finally winning his first bracelet and a very nice first prize. I think he summed what it takes to win a tournament when he said that 'everything finally clicked'

This tournament you can say it had a normal buy in, for that 1.5k USD Smile
compared to some others.
Not too many entrants though, 446 of them, making the prize for the first position
a little less than 130k
Excellent for a payday though Smile

I can say big respect to this guy, he tris to win bracelet from 2003 year, so this mean he goes every year to 15 years and 14 times loses and maybe loses nit one event, so really many loses and still keep playing and try. Congratulations to Jeremy Harkin

maybe its smaller tournament at wsop,but its goot to win any event and to get this bracelet!money prize is also good for this player,but for him more important is to have this title!now he can invest this money in other wsop events and probably in main event!

dealers choice 6 handed, ok this sounds like something new I have never tried to play. 1,500 dollaros buyin looks decent for a world series of poker event, fact that only 446 dudes and dudettes registered surely doesn't look amazing when we're used to online tourneys with 10k entrants

Massive well done to Jeremy Harkin, who topped a field of 406 players to win the $1,500 buy-in Dealers Choice 6-Handed tournament. A $129,882 first place prize. That is an enormous return on his $1,500 investment.

Yes Godoy, the americans are very good in this texas holddem poker because they invented this game. They had time to play, watch on TV for professional players skills or the internet and they read strategy about this. Americans if they were allowed to play online poker again, would win many final tables in the tournaments of poker rooms, but also many money at cash tables.
