WSOP Chips and Bracelet - 2013It's been a rollercoaster of a last couple of years for Erick Lindgren, but things certainly seem to be on the upswing for the former "Team Full Tilt" member as of late.

Erick Lindgren won the second World Series of Poker bracelet of his career last night, impressively cutting through the likes of Lee Markholt and Jonathan Little at the final table to take down the first place prize of $606,317.

The final hand summed out how Erick Lindgren has been running out of late. After a flop of 9d-Js-As, Markholt elected to commit the rest of his chips following a Lindgren raise. Lindgren snap-called and the two players turned over:

Lindgren, Ad-Ac
Markholt, Jh-9c

Markholt, figuring that he was ahead in the head, was crushed to see that Lindgren had flopped top set. There were no miracle runner-runner cards for Markholt, and he was sent to the rail in second place ($374,960).

Here is how the final table of Event #32 ($5,000 No Limit Hold'em) ended up finishing out:

Erick Lindgren, $606,317
Lee Markholt, $374,960
Jonathan Little, $238,833
Connor Drinan, $157,274
Vasile Buboi, $106,830
Ryan D'Angelo, $74,768


As mentioned, this was the second bracelet of Lindgren's career. His first came in 2008 when he took down the $5,000 Mixed Hold'em event for $374,505.

With his win last night, Erick Lindgren has over $9.85 million in total lifetime tournament cashes and now sits in 23rd on the all-time money list.

This was the second $600k+ cash of the year for Lindgren, as he recently finished in second place in the $25k WPT World Championship for $650,275.
