Quinn Do has collected his second WSOP gold bracelet after taking down the inaugural $10,000 buy-in Dealers Choice tournament.

L.A poker pro has topped a small but tough field of 108 players that generated the prize pool of $1,015,200. It may seem that 108 entries made an easy path to win a WSOP gold bracelet but the tournament attracted very talented and skillful players.

However Do found a perfect strategy for playing Dealers Choice tournament as he admitted to WSOP blog. During the Day 1, L.A poker pro noticed that some players didn’t play some games very well so he used that information and called the worst games for his opponents instead of picking the games that he was the best at.

Quinn regularly plays high stakes mix games so this tournament’s format is certainly something that he is highly experienced at. He admitted that this gold bracelet means much more to him than the bracelet he won back in 2005 in a Limit Hold’em tourney. He said that winning this bracelet was better than winning his first one because this one was for mixed games. Do spent ten years playing these games so he is very proud that he accomplished his dream. Quinn collected a first place prize of $319,792 and he now has $707,507 in WSOP earnings.

The path to vicotry was not that easy as the final table included well-known players and gold bracelet winners like Jeff Madsen, Rep Porter, Adam Friedman, David Benyamine and Paul Volpe. Five-time gold bracelet winner, David Chiu, got eliminated in ninth place.

Rep Porter, two-time gold bracelet winner, has finished as a runner up and collected a second place prize of $197,608. Porter has won his first WSOP gold bracelet back in 2008 in the $1,500 Short-handed No-Limit Hold’em event. He won second gold bracelet in $2,500 Seven Card Razz event back in 2011.

Jeff Madsen, who was described as one of the toughest opponents at the final table, got eliminated in third place by Do. Four-time gold bracelet winner and 2005 WSOP Player of the Year collected a third place prize of $129,651. Madsen now has more than $5m in live tournament earnings.

Ohio’s Adam Friedman got eliminated in fifth place and collected a prize of $63,277. Friedman won gold bracelet in $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo event back in 2012.

David Benyamine got eliminated in seventh place and collected a prize of $35,065. Benyamine won gold bracelet in $10,000 World Championship Omaha Hi/Lo Split event back in 2008. He now has 28 WSOP cashes and more than $2m in WSOP earnings.

Philadelphia’s Paul Volpe got eliminated in eighth place which paid $35,065. This was sixth time that he cashed at this year’s series. Volpe won gold bracelet in $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball event last year and collected the first place prize of $253,524.
