Jeff Madsen Takes Down Event #35 ($3,000 Pot Limit Omaha)Published on June 23rd, 2013 12:11 am EST
Jeff Madsen won the third World Series of Poker bracelet of his career on Friday evening after taking down Event #35 ($3,000 Pot Limit Omaha) of this year's WSOP. Madsen took home nearly $400,000 for the win and now has almost $4 million in lifetime tournament cashes.
Jeff Madsen burst onto the scene in 2006, taking down two World Series of Poker events ($2,000 No Limit Hold'em and $5,000 No Limit Hold'em Short Handed) at the tender age of 21. Madsen would go on to win the 2006 World Series of Poker Player of the Year title, and he is still the youngest player to have ever won that award.
Before last night, Madsen had come close in his quest to win a third bracelet, finishing eighth in the 2008 $10,000 8-Game World Championship and fourth in the 5k Pot Limit Omaha event at the 2010 World Series of Poker. At last night's $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha final table, things finally clicked for Madsen and he was finally able to secure his third bracelet after seven years of trying.
Here is how the final table ended up finishing out:
1. Jeff Madsen, $384,420
2. Douglas Corning, $237,374
3. Michal Maryska, $154,312
4. Danny Hannawa, $113,340
5. Scott Clements, $84,424
6. Ryan Chapman, $63,702
7. William Black, $48,624
8. Joni Jouhkimainen, $37,529
9. Jason DeWitt, $29,265
