WSOP 2016: George Danzer wins a fourth career bracelet
The best wins come against the best opposition, which is why it's unlikely George Danzer will be going to sleep any time soon.
A short while ago the German Team Pro won his fourth career WSOP bracelet at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas in the $10,000 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo Split-8-or-Better event, a win worth $338,646 to the mohawked German, whose already broad grin might just have got a little wider.
Danzer's previous WSOP bracelets all came in 2014 and included the $10,000 Razz Championship, the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split Championship, and away from Las Vegas the 8-Game Mix title at WSOP Asia-Pacific. His latest win means he draws level with Italian player Max Pescatori on four WSOP bracelets - more than any other European player.
Today's win came against some of the best players in the game.
Danzer defeated Randy Ohel heads-up, but then every opponent had top draw credentials, with eight of the final ten players, including the likes of Justin Bonomo, Todd Brunson, Eli Elezra and David Benyamine, having previous won WSOP bracelets.
The field had been 135 strong at the start at what is among the more niche events on the schedule, but one in which Danzer continues to demonstrate he is among the best in the world.
Danzer's win is the latest success story in a summer of great results for Team PokerStars, that has included final table finishes and of course two bracelet wins for Jason Mercier. Find all the stories from this year's World Series in Las Vegas, on our WSOP coverage page.
