Daniel Idema scored his second WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or Better tournament after 17 players returned on Day 3 out of the original 558. It took close to four hours to lose nine players to get to the final table and the First Lady of Poker, Linda Johnson, who is a bracelet winner and a member of the Poker Hall of Fame, became the ninth fatality courtesy of Idema.

Final Table Results

Artie Cobb, four-time bracelet winner, was first to exit the final table, and from there the players took their leave to pit Joseph Hertzog and Daniel Idema against each other for the bracelet, bragging rights, and the cash.

The cocktails were flowing and the crowd was sending out as much noise as possible from the rail; heads-up play had been in session for about an hour when all the chips went into the middle on fourth street.

Daniel Idema: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}/{2-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Joseph Hertzog: {2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}/{8-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{q-}{x-}

"He's dead, he's dead to the case king," Greg Mueller called out.

Hertzog flipped over a meaningless {4-} and that sent him home in second place with $114,109.

Idema won his second career bracelet, and the ninth for a Canadian at the 2013 WSOP. Congratulations Daniel!
