A Look at the First Five Bracelet Winners of the 2013 WSOP

We’re now a week into the 2013 World Series of Poker tournament series; which started with a great moment when veteran poker reporter Chad Holloway took down the Casino Employee event, and seemingly set the stage for a fun, exciting summer in Las Vegas. And now things are really starting to pick-up, with a total of five bracelets awarded after a week of action, and some more great storylines, with 2009 WSOP Main Event Champion Joe Cada just missing a bracelet and a terrific start to the WSOP by Dan Kelly leading the headlines.

Here is a look at the results from the first five events of the 2013 WSOP:

Event #1: $500 Casino Employee Tournament

What a way to kick-off the WSOP! Chad Holloway isn’t just a poker reporter; he’s a fixture on the tournament scene and by most accounts one of the most likeable people in the game. Holloway has also been improving as a player, which became obvious when he won a WSOP bracelet!

  1. Chad Holloway – $84,915
  2. Allan Kwong – $52,318
  3. Bobby Rooney – $33,903
  4. Brian Pingel – $24,811
  5. Daniel Ellery – $18,426
  6. Sean Small – $13,868
  7. Tyrone Smith – $10,567
  8. Michael Trivett – $8,146
  9. Hieu Le – $6,348

Event #2: $5k 8-Max NLHE

Trevor Pope emerged victorious over a stacked final table in Event #2, besting the likes of David Vamplew, Daryll Fish, David Peters and Dan Kelly to capture his first WSOP bracelet.

  1. Trevor Pope – $553,906
  2. David Vamplew – $342,450
  3. Darryll Fish – $215,286
  4. Jared Hamby – $154,518
  5. Jamie Armstrong – $112,695
  6. Dan Kelly – $83,582
  7. Brandon Meyers – $62,915
  8. David Peters – $48,130

Event #3: $1k NLHE with Reentry

A potential star emerged in Event #3, as Canadian poker pro and FOD (Friend of Duhamel) Charles Sylvestre captured his first WSOP bracelet. If the rhetoric is true, we may very well be seeing the start of a great poker career.

  1. Charles Sylvestre– $491,360
  2. Seth Berger – $303,952
  3. William Guerrero — $215,107
  4. Michael Cooper — $155,706
  5. Binh Ta — $114,017
  6. Ryan Olisar — $84,459
  7. Darren Rabinowitz – $63,273
  8. Ruben Ybarra – $47,925
  9. Ping Liu — $36,705

Event #4: $1,500 No Limit Holdem 6-handed

The storyline is this event was 2009 WSOP Champ Joe Cada’s deep run. Cada has been a bit of a disappointment since winning the biggest prize in poker back in 2009, so maybe this tournament will get his career back on track.

  1. John Beauprez – $324,764
  2. Manig Loeser – $200,698
  3. Eric Blair – $127,300
  4. Joe Cada – $83,558
  5. Mike Mustafa – $56,499
  6. Keven Stammen – $39,325

Event #5: $2,500 Omaha 8/Stud 8

Event #5 saw our first female final table participant in Julie Schneider, but after last year’s showing, the real question will be: When will a woman win an event this year.

  1. Mike Gorodinsky – $216,958
  2. Kristopher Tong – $134,017
  3. Matthew Ashton – $86,437
  4. Owais Ahmed – $62,631
  5. George Fotiadis – $46,048
  6. George Danzer – $34,348
  7. Mack Lee – $25,993
  8. Julie Schneider – $19,952
