George Danzer did his chances of winning the WSOP Player of the Year award the power of good when won his second bracelet of the summer. The first one came in Event 18 which was the $10,000 Seven Card Razz Tournament and the second in Event 38 the $10,000 Seven Card Stud tourney, taking the total number of players to 14 that have won in 2014 and in previous years. He’s also had 3 other cashes so far and that has all come in a pretty packed personal schedule and he has no plans to change the way he’s planned his summer, stating that, "I've had a very busy schedule so far, with one tournament every single day, I'm already busy enough, playing in the events I schedule for myself. So, I'm not going to overload myself too much. I'm going to grind that way I intended, just as I did before." Danzer has already put himself in great position to be the player of the festival and he puts his current form down to having a hunger for the game.
In Event 37 it was Brandon Pastor who took the silverware when he won the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha tournament and that was him finished in Vegas for the summer, telling journalists that, “I’ve got everything I want, now it’s time to party my face off.” He’s off to Amsterdam for the rest of the summer, and the win of $264,000 means that he can party hard! Other bracelets have gone to Sean Dempsey in Event 39 the $3,000 No Limit Hold’em event and it was Robert Mizrachi who took the $1,500 Dealers Choice Six Handed bracelet, 7 years after he won his first. Michael Drummond took a huge payday when he won Event 42 the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six Handed tournament while Dan Kelly beat 657 players to take home the cash and the bracelet in Event 43 the $1,500 Limit Hold’em tourney. We’re half way through the WSOP 2014 and there’s plenty more bracelets to be won, and it’s not long now until the $10 Million guaranteed Main Event kicks off.
