Sean Getzwiller, who defeated a stacked field of 4,178 players to win the first $1,000 event of the WSOP, made another final table and could win his second WSOP bracelet today.
Getzwiller had cashed in the WSOP eight times before his victory, all of them coming in events with buy-ins of less than $3,000. But with his $611,185 in winnings, he entered the $5,000 shootout. After two rounds of shootout play, he has moved on to reach the final 10-handed table.
Although the final table features many stars, Getzwiller is in the spotlight since he could be this year’s first entrant to win two bracelets.
However, to do so Getzwiller must defeat such luminaries as Tom Marchese, Adam Junglen, Todd Terry, Nicolas Fierrogottner, Jeffrey Gross, Nikita Lebedev, Scott Baumstein and Dan Smith, who are NAPT champions and WSOP Circuit title holders.
