David Bach confirmed his status of mixed games master and added the first place in the H.O.R.S.E Championship to his Dealer's Choice title.
$ 10,000 H.O.R.S.E. became one of the most popular championships of the current series. The tournament was attended by 150 players, and the prize pool amounted to $1.4 million. Again multiple holders of gold bracelets did not concede to the number of ordinary players. This time they played more confidently. The last year champion Jason Mercier became the leader on the first day of the championship. However, by the end of the second day Daniel Negreanu got on top of chip count by a long shot. Both got to the final table, where they were accompanied by Andrew Brown, Eric Rodawig and David Bach.
Negreanu and Mercier started the finals with large stacks (each had 24bb, only Eric Rodawig had 27bb and Don Zevin - 25bb), and Bach was forced to play with the average stack (15bb). When it came to the top 6, Mercury broke into the leaders, while Bach and Negreanu sank to the very bottom (3.5 and 3 bb respectively). On this stage for Negreanu everything was over. He lost the remaining stack to Rodawig and eliminated in 6th place ($61677), while Bach doubled twice and returned to the game.
Mercier eliminated in the 5th place ($83,415) just after Negreanu. Bach, quite the opposite, gradually was reaching the top. After knocking Andrew Brown out in fourth place ($ 115,484), he headed the chip count, but Eric Rodawig became a leader to the heads-up. Heads-up was played at the suggestion of Bach - having snatched the lead playing Stud and Stud Hi-Lo, he calmly gained benefits in Hold'em and finally won in Omaha.
The champion’s prize was equal to $383,208, while the runner-up enriched himself with $236,841. This bracelet was the third in Bach's career and the second at the WSOP 2017. It is interesting, that this year Bach got prizes in the world series tournaments only twice, and won both tournaments. Despite the two bracelets, David is still far from the first place in the race for the title of the best player of the series, while Daniel Negreanu will rise to the third line (380 points) after this tournament.
