WSOP Europe – Hairabedian Wins 2nd Career Bracelet

Roger Hairabedian

The World Series of Poker Europe has been rumbling along nicely all week with five of the eight events having now been completed. The fifth was completed last night and awarded yet another bracelet with it this time going to Roger Hairabedian who now has two to his name from his poker playing career.

Check out how he won Event #5 below whilst you can also see the progress of Event #6 after it reached its final day and four players.

WSOPE Event #5 – €2,200 No Limit Hold’em Day 3

First up we had a final table to get through in Event #5 as the remaining seven players returned to the felt in order to do battle for the title and bracelet. He came into the day trailing Erik Seidel in chips, but wasted no time in dominating the final table to claim the second bracelet of his career.

He overcame a very tough final table that also included Max Greenwood and Mike Watson but those two were out within just the first hour.


He took home €148,820 after beating Seidel during heads up too which is no mean feat as his opponent has eight WSOP bracelets to his name as was looking for a ninth, yet the day was all about Hairabedian as he ground down his opponent to finally claim victory.
