Oleksii Kovalchuk Wins Second WSOP Bracelet
Last Man Standing in Event No. 42
Ukranian Oleksii Kovalchuk won his second career World Series of Poker bracelet early Monday morning in Las Vegas, Nevada. He outlasted a field of 393 in Event No. 42 ($2,500 Omaha/seven-card stud eight-or-better).
Kovalchuk snagged the first-place prize of $228,014, after beating out the likes of Mark Gregorich, Jeff Lisandro, Yuval Bronshtein, Norman Chad, and George Danzer, who finished second, near the end of the tournament.
Gregorich is one of poker’s nicest guys and best split-games players.

Kovalchuk climbs to 18th in the Player of the Year race, after grabbing 900 points for the victory. He finished last year in third. The 22-year-old now has $2,115,443 in career earnings.
