Brock Parker walks away with the $443,407 in cash and another gold WSOP bracelet for his winning finish in the WSOP Event #10 $10,000 Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship. Parker has already won two WSOP bracelets, both from Hold'em events, but, this is his first from an event other than Hold'em.
He has made ten final tables in his ten years of playing in the World Series of Poker and made the final table of a $4,500 Razz event earlier this year's WSOP. Adding this championship and the prior final table places Brock Parker in t5he lead for the WSOP Player of the Year.
This second of thirteen scheduled $10,000 championship events attracted a blue ribbon list of poker players among the 178 entrants. A prize pool of $1,673,200 was paid out to the top 18 finishers. Among the notables were Eli Elezra, Perry Friedman and Jeff Lisandro.
Second Place finisher, Richard Asby, and Brock Parker fought a toe-to-toe slug fest to the delight of the fans with neither of the opponents giving an inch. Finally, Parker held all the chips and the championship. Included in the final table nine were two women, Melissa Burr and Shirley Rosario, whose presents made for a rare occurrence at a WSOP final table.
The following list the final table players and their order of finish and money received:
Brock Parker --------- $443,407
Richard Ashby ------- $274,019
OfirMor --------------- $198,058
Shirley Rosario ------- $146,522
