Jeff Madsen Bags Third Bracelet in Event #35

Jeff Madsen Event 35 WSOP 2013
Share this

Jeff Madsen was the youngest player ever to win a WSOP bracelet at the age of 21. That was then, the record has long since been broken, but Madsen also won his second bracelet within a week of claiming the first. He took third-place in another event a few days later and became the 2006 WSOP Player of the Year. Madsen picked up more than 25 cashes at the WSOP over the years but it took Event #35 $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha to put him at the top again where he won his third career bracelet and stacked a first place prize of $384,420.

2Douglas Corning$237,374
3Michal Maryska$154,312
4Danny Hannawa$113,340
5Scott Clements$84,424
6Ryan Chapman$63,702
7William Black$48,624

9Jason DeWitt$29,265

The field started with 640 players and 19 returned for the final day with Madsen coming in as the chip leader. Douglas Corning was the last player Jeff Madsen had to get through to claim all the chips and both players were less than a big blind apart, and Madsen was in second place in chips for the first time all day, when heads-up play began. But Madsen was in 'chip gathering' mode and went to work on the very first hand.

The final hand came down on #147: Corning raised to 110,000, Madsen raised the pot (330,000), and Corning called. The flop hit the board with the {10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{k-Hearts}, Madsen bet the pot (660,000), Corning moved all-in, and Madsen called.

Madsen: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{j-Spades}{9-Spades}
Corning: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

Corning flopped "bookends" (top and bottom pair) — Madsen had a gut-shot straight draw. The {7-Hearts} on the turn gave him four more outs to make a straight.

The {j-Clubs} hit on the river, giving Madsen kings and jacks and sent Corning out in second place. Corning, who finished 11th in the €5,000 Pot Limit Omaha event at the 2012 WSOPE, took home $237,374 for his efforts.

Madsen became the fourth former WSOP Player of the Year to win a bracelet in 2013. The others: Tom Schneider, Erick Lindgren, and Daniel Negreanu (winner of the WSOP APAC Main Event). Congratulations Jeff!
