Poker Achievements

Bellande's first recorded poker cash came in 2001. He regularly cashed in tournaments across the United States during the 2000s.

Over the course of his early career, he twice came close to winning a WSOP bracelet. In 2008 he finished runer-up in a $1,500 Shootout for $173,564 and seven years later, narrowly missed out on a marquee event win in the $50,000 Players Championship, coming second to Mike Gorodinsky for $784,828.

In 2018, Bellande won his first WSOP bracelet for $616,302. He won Event #58: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Handed, drinking a $400 bottle wine during the final table.

“I’ve worked a lot on my game but I know I’m way behind the top-level players in that game. I would never ever dream my first bracelet would be in no-limit hold’em, but it makes it extra exciting for me.”

Since his bracelet victory, Bellande made the final table of the $10K 2-7 Championship and is a regular on High Stakes Poker, playing in both Season 8 and Season 9 of the show.
