Through the Lens: Legends Collide


This past week at the World Series has been a whirlwind of firsts, as Joe Cheong captured his first WSOP gold bracelet, two Hall of Famers met heads-up for a bracelet for the first time in history, and Loren Klein became the first person to win a bracelet four consecutive years in a row since Doyle Brunson back in 1979. Below is a collection of my favorite images from the past weeks events!

Loren Klein defeated a tough field in the $2,500 Big Bet Mix event to take home his fourth bracelet. Klein has taken home a bracelet each of the last four years, tying Doyle Brunson run in 1976-1979.
Phil Hui ended up finishing in 3rd place in the same event as Klein. This is Hui’s 8th cash of the series thus far and third final table. The result notches him into the top 10 for the POY race.
For the first time in history, two Hall of Famers met heads up for a WSOP Bracelet when John Hennigan and Daniel Negreanu squared off in the $10K Stud Championship. As you can imagine, quite the rail turned out to watch the two legends battle.
John Hennigan went on to win the event and take home his 6th bracelet.
Heads Up in the $1,000 Double Stack Event.
Joseph Cheong also took home his piece of history this past week, as he took home his first WSOP Bracelet in the $1,000 Double Stack Event.
