Ian Johns Claims Second Bracelet of the Series
In an exciting first few of weeks at the 2016 WSOP in which $10K events and in particular, Jason Mercier have been generating all the headlines, the $10K Limit Holdem event has not disappointed. We were treated to another $10K event which saw big names fighting it out at the final table and a man claim his second bracelet of the series. The bigger names in contention were mostly sent to the rail early at the final table. Two time bracelet winner Brian Rast exited in 8th, while three time bracelet winner Brock Parker departed in 7th. Two time Bracelet winner Bill Chen followed in 6th, with five time bracelet winner David Chiu falling in 4th.
Having already won the $3,000 Limit Holdem event in 2006, Ian Johns added the $1,500 HORSE bracelet to his collection two weeks ago. The mixed game specialist has continued his good run of form by striking gold once more and defeating Sean Berrios heads up in the $10K Limit Holdem event. He now joins a small and group of players who have accomplished the task of winning multiple bracelets in a single series.
