When Nick Binger won his bracelet in this form of poker last year, he took home a very nice $397,073 - a little more than what today's event will pay the eventual champion. If Binger is able to win this event event, he would join the elite club of players with 2 World Series of Poker gold bracelets and see his lifetime tournament winnings soar past $2.5 million. Well, its so far so good for Binger, managing to see his stack increase to around 30,000.
We recently watched Binger take down a hand against one opponent. It was a raised pot that saw Binger and this player take to a flop. Binger led for 3,000 her and his opponent called. When the hit the turn, Binger would take his time before betting 5,000. That was enough to see his opponent's cards into the muck as Binger raked in a few chips.
