WCOOP 2013: A bracelet for each CrabMaki claw
Then, on this very day last year, Shallow was leading the 2012 WCOOP-29: $1,050 No-limit Hold'em event headed into the second day. He was denied his second WCOOP bracelet last year, but...well, yesterday worked out better.
Well, Shallow won his second bracelet in Event #10, $215 PLO (Knockout). Back in 2010 he told me, "Poker is an unsolved game, so be creative."
Looks like he's still working that creativity to pay the bills.
Shallow's finish was not the only big win yesterday.
