Dan Kelly Wins Event #43: $1,500 Limit Hold'em and 2nd Bracelet

Dan Kelly Event #43 WSOP 2014
Share this

Back in 2010 Dan Kelly won his first bracelet in the $25,000 NLHE Six Handed tournament to take home a massive $1,315,518. Kelly has cashed 22 more times and made five final tables since then and in 2013 he cashed a total of 10 times. Kelly arrived at the 2014 WSOP motivated to win his second bracelet. Event #43: $1,500 Limit Hold'em was the perfect vehicle for Kelly to end up with all the chips and his second bracelet after over 300 hands were played at the final table.

"It's always nice to win," Kelly told the media after the event. "It's hard to top the first one I won because it was my first WSOP and it was the 25K, but this one means a lot."


1Dan Kelly$195,167
2Yegor Tsurikov$120,501
3Brandon Shack-Harris$78,335
4Sean Berrios$57,536
5Jesse Katz$42,857
6David Chiu$32,338
7Jeff Lisandro$24,683
8Bryce Landier$19,051
9Ron Burke$14,856

The final table had two five-time bracelet winners aiming for number six — Jeff Lisandro and David Chiu. Once those two were eliminated, Brandon Shack-Harris (with a first and second place finish this summer) was Kelly's biggest threat. Shack-Harris fell in third place though and it was down to Yegor Tsurikov and Kelly who had a commanding chip lead.

Hand #331 brought the competition to a screeching halt when Yegor Tsurikov raised. Dan Kelly raised and Tsurikov put all of his chips remaining in the middle. Kelly called and Tsurikov's tournament life was on the line.

Tsurikov: {10-Spades}{6-Clubs}.

Kelly: {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}.

The board of {7-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} saw Kelly make a straight and end Tsurikov’s attempt at a comeback.

Congratulations Dan! And congratulations on having your parents there to watch you take it down and share your moment of glory!
