Jeff Lisandro Wins His Fifth World Series of Poker BraceletPublished on September 18th, 2010 9:44 pm EST
Joe Serock seemed poised to win his first World Series of Poker bracelet early Sunday morning, but it just wasn't meant to be.
Instead, Jeff Lisandro walked away with his fifth World Series of Poker bracelet and just under 160k pounds after taking down WSOPE #2 (5k PLO), while Serock took home about 98k pounds for his second place finish.
The poker gods just weren't smiling down on Serock during heads up play. With a 1.3 million to 500k chip lead, Serock had his opponent out-chipped and dominated in an all-in pre-flop confrontation. The two players flipped over:
Serock - Ad-As-Jh-10h
Lisandro - Ks-Kd-2d-5c
Serock was in great shape to finish off Lisandro and take home his first bracelet, but it just wasn't meant to be. The flop came 7c-5d-Kh, putting Lisandro way ahead in the hand with a set of Kings. The board ran out 6d-5s, giving Lisandro the key double-up and all of the momentum back in the match. The end came for a dejected Serock just a few short minutes later.
As mentioned, this is Lisandro's fifth World Series of Poker bracelet:
2010 - WSOPE #2 5k GBP PLO
2009 - WSOP $2,500 Seven Card RAZZ
2009 - WSOP $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo
2009 - WSOP $1,500 Seven Card Stud
2007 - WSOP $2,000 Seven Card Stud
It's worth noting that Lisandro has won four World Series of Poker bracelets in the last 15 months.
Here is how the final table of WSOPE #2 finished out:
(prize money in GBP)
1. Jeff Lisandro, 159,514
2. Joe Serock, 98,262
