Event #15: 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em

Bradley Jansen claimed his first gold bracelet in the $1,500 event. The self proclaimed semi-pro declared in the end: “When we got heads-up I just ran like the sun and I make a bunch of big hands. (Malod) played great. I don’t think there was anything he could have done to change the outcome”. The player doubled his lifetime earnings with this win.
