“God Save the Queen” will ring out through the halls of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino once again this week after Southampton’s Benny Glaser closed out Event #33: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Triple Draw to win the United Kingdom’s second bracelet of the 2015 World Series of Poker (WSOP).
Glaser played several events at the 2014 WSOP but failed to register a single in-the-money finish, something he put right this year when he put together a deep run in the Millionaire Maker that ultimately ended with a 289th place finish and a $5,990 prize.
The 26-year old considers Limit 2-7 Triple Draw one of his strongest games and, according to an interview with the WSOP shortly after his victory, is a regular in this format in the online poker world. Glaser’s countless hours at the virtual felt have paid off with him besting a star-studded field of 388 players to collect $136,215 and the coveted WSOP bracelet.
Brock Parker was Glaser’s heads-up opponent, himself a three-time bracelet winner, but he was denied a fourth piece of poker bling by Glaser.
The final hand saw Parker raise to 80,000 and Glaser call. Glaser drew three cards, and Parker drew two. Glaser then checked, Parker bet, Glaser check-raised and then called when Parker put in his last 120,000.
Parker drew one card on the second round with Glaser standing pat for the rest of the hand. With all rounds complete, Glaser showed and Parker , gifting Glaser the pot and the victory.
“It means a lot to win it. The prestige and the accomplishment of this – it’s surreal,” Glaser told the WSOP.
