This last June 13th, Robert won his first bracelet ever in Event #33: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw, besting 466 players for the title. Twenty days later, he repeats this sick run for a second bracelet, showing how good he is in all poker variants! What a great summer for the Aussie as he’s currently cashed 7 times with four final tables!

An emotionally rich event as Yueqi Zhu has finished runner-up for the second time in three days!

More than pure. Whatever that next phase is after pure. It was really sick. I felt like ‘Holy f***ing s**t man, he just got barbecued, that poor man.” – A few kind words from Robert about his opponent.

However, Yueqi Zhu will be hard to pity as he’s currently ranked 7th in most cashes and bagged $454,535 this summer.
