Matt PerrinsThe winner of the $5,000 no-limit hold’em event no. 57 was Matt Perrins, who topped a player field of 784 and earned his second gold bracelet along with $792,275, which is more than seven times his previous World Series of Poker win.

The 25-year-old poker pro from Manchester, considers winning his second bracelet to be even more of an accomplishment than the first.

“This one really means a lot to me,” Perrins said. “It’s like with this one I am really verified as a player. I mean, it’s a second gold bracelet. I was watching the WSOP on TV four or five years ago and to think I would win a gold bracelet….and now, I’ve won two.”

He was cheered on by fellow countrymen and friends the entire final day. This was Britain’s third bracelet win of the summer.

Seth Berger, who finished runner-up earlier this summer made this final table and took third place. His two final table appearances and $618,000 in combined WSOP earnings are enough to put him in eighth place overall in the Card Player Player of the Year race.

Other notables at the final table included Matt Berkey, Randal Flowers and Joe Serock.
