Ronnie Bardah Wins 2012 World Series of Poker Six-Max Limit Hold'em Event
Bardah Earns First Gold Bracelet and $182,088
One of the nicest guys in poker, Ronnie Bardah, scored the first bracelet of his career Saturday night when he took down event no. 40, the $2,500 six-handed limit hold’em tournament at the 2012 World Series of Poker.
Bardah, who recently dedicated himself to the sport of kickboxing, defeated a field of 302 en route to his $182,088 payday.
The Brockton, Massachusetts professional is perhaps best known for his deep run in the 2010 WSOP main event, where he finished 24th, earning $317,161. He now has live tournament earnings of more than $724,000.
Other notables at the final table included Sorel Mizzi, Brent Wheeler and eventual runner-up finisher Marco Johnson. Among the players who made the money were Maria Ho, Chad Brown, Rep Porter, Terrence Chan, Zach Clark, Dan Shak, Jon Turner, Ryan D’Angelo, JEff Lisandro, John Hennigan and Scott Seiver.
This was Bardah’s first Card Player Player of the Year qualifying finish, giving him 720 points and moving him into 221st place overall.
Here is a look at the final table results.
