After an 11 year wait, Michael Noori finally landed his first ever gold bracelet at Event #30: $1,500 Monster Stack NLH Freezeout. Noori outlasted a massive field of 2,342 players, defeating the hot running Ryan Leng who had just won a third career bracelet at an earlier event. The dream victory also came with a mighty US$ 610,347 payout, the largest score of his career. Based on THM, he climbed over US$ 1.3 Million in total live earnings. 

Leading up to his huge win, Noori kicked off the final day ranked 10th out of 24 remaining players. Up top was Singaporean player Suren Jaesh Balachandran who was already on the deepest run by an Asian player in this event. Balachandran went on to reach the final table ranked fifth but after banging into two pocket Aces, he fell early in 10th place. On the high end of the pole were Leng and Rafael Marcondes Reis, both players battling for control. Staying quiet was Noori until he caught a lucky seven for a set to survive Mordechai Hazan’s pocket Jacks. From there, Noori eliminated Christopher Andler (4th) and Leng finished off Reis (3rd), for the two to meet at heads up. Leng entered with a 2:1 advantage. After several hands, a game changer played out. Noori’s 6c5d straight earned him a big double up and the lead against Leng’s 8c7c top two pair on a board 8h7d3s4h3h. From there, the momentum carried. Noori dominated the 3x champ to seize his first gold bracelet. 

The event’s 2,342 turnout created a prize pool of US$ 3,126,570. Among the many Asian players that graced the felt, reaching the money were Hsuan Chao Chen (39th), Jeonggyu Cho (46th), Yeon Bae (54th), JJ Liu (63rd), Seungmook Jung (88th), 2x bracelet winner Nipun Java (95th), Guan Wang (186th), Minkyun Kim (187th), bracelet winner Sejin Park (384th), Duy Ho (413th), Masato Yokosawa (489th), and Aoi Oyama (516th).

The third H.O.R.S.E. event of the series saw 282 pony up the US$ 3,000 buy in for a prize pool of US$ 752,940. Stepping up against other decorated pros was Jim Collopy to snatch up his second career bracelet and the US$ 173,823 first prize. At the final table, Collopy held off fellow bracelet holders 6x winner Daniel Negreanu, 4x winner Eli Elezra, and David Williams who was back at the finals having placed 2nd at an earlier event.

With this win, Collopy climbed to over US$ 1.2 Million in WSOP career earnings across 66 cashes. He captured his first bracelet in Australia at the 2013 WSOP Asia Pacific A$1,650 Pot Limit Omaha event. Interviewed by PokerNews, he expressed, 

“It always feels cool to win on a big stage, so I’d say that’s what makes it most different, I definitely wanted a few players out of the way, and that definitely was incorporated into my strategy.”

Three years prior, Collopy placed 2nd at the WSOP Europe £10,350 NL Hold’em High Roller Heads up for £178,211 (~US$ 274,924) which remains his largest score to date. Outside of the series, his other achievements amount to well over US$ 2 Million.

In 2020, he won the WPT Gardens Poker Championship $25,000 NL Hold’em High Roller event in Los Angeles, California for a sizable US$ 245,000. To kick off 2021, Collopy took down the WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open $5,000 NL Hold’em for back to back WPT titles and US$ 141,714 added to his earninngs.
