Summary:

  • Bryce Yockey defeated a field of 733 entrants at Event 8: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. 
  • He topped his accomplishment from seven years ago, taking home his second WSOP bracelet. 
  • Yockey is the third player of the series from the 25KFantasy Draft to win a bracelet.

Seven years ago, 113 GPI-ranked US poker player from California with over $5.1 million in total live earnings, Bryce Yockey, won his first-ever World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet in the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo Championship

Now, Yockey topped his previous accomplishment by scoring his second WSOP hardware after defeating a field of 733 entrants at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas in Event #8: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Yockey, who also notched a new career-best score of $606,654 in Vegas, expressed his excitement about his big win, saying

There’s no feeling like it winning a tournament, especially a WSOP tournament which is a highlight of anyone’s poker career.

Yockey explained he felt loved and supported by the people who came to watch him play, and also “validated” given his hard work focused on getting “better at PLO specifically”. 

The player, who last defeated Farid Jattin after a heads-up duel, added that his efforts had “paid off” on the day of his most recent win. 

Third Player of the 25KFantasy Draft Series to Win a Bracelet

Yockey’s freshest result makes him the third player of the series from the 25KFantasy Draft to take home a prestigious bracelet. 

He joined John Hennigan and Nick Guagenti, the other draft picks who reached the top spot in the first week of the 2024 WSOP. 

Hennigan’s Dealer Choice victory helped him join the seven-bracelet club. Similar to Yockey, Guagenti won his second hardware piece in the Limit Hold’em streets before the former closed the tournament.

Yockey, Interested in the WSOP Player of the Year Title 

The player’s ambitions to land another bracelet are joined by a desire to also join the prestigious WSOP Player of the Year race.

While admitting he will “never” be like Shaun Deeb or Daniel Negreanu or play two tournaments simultaneously “unless it’s a really unusual situation”, Yockey confirms he will “be in here every single day“.

He explained that since he constantly plays 40 events, adding another ten is “really not that different”.
