Will Jaffe Earns World Series of Poker Bracelet In Event No. 54
Jaffe Pockets $500,075 For Defeating Field of 3,221
Will Jaffe took down event no. 54, a $1,000 no-limit hold’em tournament at the 2012 World Series of POker, earning his first gold bracelet and the top prize of $500,075.
Jaffe, a poker pro from Bridgehampton, New York, overcame 3,221 total players, a raucous final table and heads-up battle against Brazilian Luis Campelo, who is a 47-year-old engineer.
The heads-up match started late on day 3 and continued on until day 4 after the players hit the hard stop time imposed by WSOP staff. When they returned on Wednesday, it took another four hours for Jaffe to finish the job.
This was Jaffe’s third cash of the 2012 WSOP, after having previously min-cashed in both event no. 14 and event no. 38. He picked up 1,200 Card Player Player of the Year points for his efforts.
Other notables making deep runs included Joe Kuether, Henry Tran, Benjamin Volpe, David Baker, David Singontiko and Katie Dozier.
Here is a look at the final table results.
