Featured -Justin Saliba Wins His First World Series of Poker Gold Bracelet

Justin ‘Jsaliba2’ Saliba won the World Series of Poker Online $5,300 High Roller Event taking the first prize of $253,800 and the gold bracelet. Saliba prevailed over 188 other players to win the tournament. With this win, Saliba’s lifetime tournament earnings increased to $455,167. This wasn’t an easy win either since there were a number of top players in the tournament, including Nick ‘Cashusklay’ Schulman, a WPT champion and three-time bracelet winner, as well as Ali ‘SasukeUchiha’ Imsirovic, who is the current leader in the race for the title of Card Player’s Player of the Year.

Saliba started in third place at the final table with ‘OrcinusOrca’ holding the chip lead. But, Jonathan ‘Art.Vandelay’ Dokler took the chip lead after scoring the first two knockouts. Saliba would get his first elimination when he defeated ‘OrcinusOrca’ who finished fourth for $65,800. Yaginuma would be eliminated next, finishing third for $84,600.

This left Saliba and Jonathan Dokler, with Saliba having a 3.5:1 chip lead. He used this advantage to quickly win the tournament leaving Dokler in second place with $148,000.
