Pescatori Grabs Third WSOP Bracelet; Two Pros Vie for $10K Heads-up Title
Max Pescatori wins his third World Series of Poker bracelet, while one pro will win his second on Thursday in the $10K heads-up event.
Pescatori added to his bracelet collection on Wednesday night, taking down the $1,500 razz event, winning $155,000 in the process. Check out the final hand here.
The Italian, who has quite a bit of his success over the years, won his last bracelet in 2008, in a $2,500 buy-in pot limit hold’em/Omaha tourney. This was also his largest score since that victory. His first bracelet came in 2006, a $2,500 no-limit hold’em tourney. He reached the final table of the $10K HORSE event last year, but finished fifth.

Pescatori now has $1.6 million in cashes at the WSOP, and nearly $4 million across all live tournaments.
Meanwhile, two pros will look to add to their single gold bracelets in today’s final match of the $10,000 buy-in heads-up tourney. Paul Volpe and Keith Lehr will play today starting at 1 p.m., vying for the top prize of more than $330K.
Volpe won a $10K event last year for his first and only bracelet, playing 2-7 single draw. Lehr won his only bracelet back in 2003, in a pot-limit hold’em event. You can watch the live stream here.
