Matt Perrins takes down Brit bracelet number 2 in event #9: $1,500 2-7 draw lowball. It is hard to say just what is the most captivating part of this story. Is it the fact that, once again, young British players are dominating world poker for a third year in a row? Is it the fact that he is Jake Cody’s best friend from school, winning WSOP gold just 3 days after his mate? Or perhaps it is the fact that this was the first time Perrins has played 2-7 lowball ever!
Clearly he is a quick learner and has already indicated he will be playing the $10,000 event in this discipline. He certainly has the roll for it now if he didn’t before, taking down $102,105 after beating mixed games specialist Chris Bjorin heads-up for the bracelet.
Once again, a packed Brit rail was in attendance cheering their man on and making a name for themselves out in Vegas. Perrins has now really made a name for himself, and can consider himself a WSOP champion alongside an already very impressive resume that includes an Italian Poker Tour title and over $600,000 in career winnings.
The Brits have landed, watch how they get on at the rest of the WSOP with our Live Updates.
