Notable Information

Jeremy Pekarek won his first WSOP gold bracelet yesterday after studying the game and playing for the past five years. He had planned a full tournament schedule for this summer but may now take some time to enjoy his victory and reflect on lessons learned in Event 9. “I really fought to make it here,” an emotional Pekarek said of the win. “I really am just kind of speechless.”

In Event 10, a familiar face took down the mixed-game bracelet. Scott Clements won his first two WSOP bracelets one dozen years ago, and the third was a long time coming. The father of three said the 2019 bracelet is his favorite, noting he has three children and each of them can now have a bracelet.
