World Series of Poker -- Harold Angle Wins Event No. 34
Florida Native Wins First Bracelet
Harold Angle made his first career WSOP cash. Unlike most first career cashes, Angle’s cash had a bracelet come along with it.
The Sun City, Florida native outlasted 3,142 players to win event no. 34, the seniors no-limit hold’em event, and takes home $487,994 for his first cash in a major tournament.
Angle made it to the final table with an average stack and was able to make full houses to knock out the first two players at the final table. He was able to tread water after adding chips to his stack early on and made it down to three-handed play when he tangled with chip leader John Woo.
Woo and Angle both had around 4 million in chips when Angle flopped two pair with his J-10 against Woo’s pocket queens. That pot shot Angle up to over 8 million and left Woo crippled. Angle got heads-up with nearly a 9-1 chip advantage and that was too much for Michael Minetti to overcome.
Here are the final table results.
1. Harold Angle – $487,994
2. Michael Minetti – $301,839
3. John Woo – $213,612
4. Eric Stemp – $154,624
