When David Bach saluted in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E Championship in Las Vegas, not only did he take home the first prize of more than $383,000, but he also became the first player to win multiple events at this year’s World Series of Poker.
The Georgia-native first won a World Series of Poker bracelet – the non-monetary prize for winning a WSOP event – way back in 2009, when he saluted in the $50,000 World Championship H.O.R.S.E event, against a field that has featured some of the world’s best players.
It was a long time between drinks for the American after that though, several near-misses and close calls later, he finally tasted success again on June 5 of this year when he won his second bracelet in the $1,500 Dealers Choice – 6 Handed event.
After waiting eight years for his second win, his third win came just ten days after his second, when Mr. Bach came through in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship at the Rio Casino.
He had to do it hard in his most recent win too, beating six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu, defending champion and five-time bracelet winner Jason Mercier, and Andrew Brown and Eric Rodawig, who each have one bracelet, on his way to victory.
Having learned poker during family games where the stakes were just a few cents, he first played a serious cash game at the age of 18, when he realised that he could make some serious money from the game.
The University of Georgia graduate has certainly done that, he’s been on the WSOP circuit for over 20 years now, and will be lining up again this weekend for the 45th event of the WSOP, which will be a No-Limit Hold’em contest.
