Sixth WSOP Gold Bracelet Claimed by Australian Poker Hall of Famer Jeff Lisandro

2014 WSOP APAC - Jeff Lisandro
Share this

Jeff Lisandro is known as "The Ice Man" but that steely veneer slid off into a huge grin as he claimed the title in the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific (WSOP APAC) Event #3 Pot Limit Omaha and his sixth gold bracelet.

Day 3 found Lisandro entering the competition third in chips. In the first six hands three players of the final six were on their way to the cashier (also known as the rail). It started with Paul Mac, then Paul Sharbanee, and then Gary Benson was gone. It wasn't until the 35th hand that Zane Ly left in third place.

Ly also made this final table appearance the second one of this series — he placed sixth in the first event — and was sent to the rail in third place in this event by Lisandro's aces.

Then it was Jason Gray standing between Lisandro and the gold bracelet. This was Gray's fifth WSOP final table and he stretched the challenge into a 99-hand battle before Lisandro busted him.

Hand #134: From the button Lisandro called. Gray checked to see a flop of {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Gray bet 12,000, Lisandro raised, Gray raised all-in, and Lisandro called.

Gray held the {J-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for two pair and Lisandro tabled the {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{5-Spades}.

The turn brought the {4-Spades} — Gray was still in the lead — but the {3-Diamonds} on the river gave Lisandro a wheel (a straight with the A-2-3-4-5) and the winning hand.

Lisandro earned AU$51,660 and the title, along with his sixth gold bracelet which puts him in the group of other famous players that have six bracelets: TJ Cloutier, Ted Forrest, Layne Flack, Jay Heimowitz, and Daniel Negreanu.

Congratulations Jeff! Keep that smile, it looks good on you!
