Winning three World Series of Poker bracelets, in general, is an amazing accomplishment for any poker pro. 

Winning three bracelets in three consecutive years is an astounding hat trick anyone would want to add to their track record.

US player Sean Troha is now familiar with the feeling after he won his third bracelet in three years when he defeated a player field made of 259 participants at the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas in WSOP 2024 – Event #24: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship.

“I’m Still Kind of in Shock” 

Troha, who defeated Tyler Brown heads up and scooped up a $536,713 cash prize, said he was “still kind of in shock” shortly after he won his third bracelet. 

It all happened so fast”, he added, saying that he was making plans “for the celebration, which will be muted”.

The player entered Day 3 as the short stack and was lucky enough to double up a few times at the start of the tournament. 

Troha, who called his double-ups “crucial”, hopes he will make a comeback next year. He also announced his plans to participate in “almost any PLO event” in an attempt to scoop up his fourth bracelet.

He explained that his recent victory came despite not having a lot of variance in his stack “until about three or four-handed”., adding he was “just lucky enough to come out on top”.

13 Players Entered Day 3 

Thirteen players entered Day 3. Six of them were WSOP bracelet winners. 

As mentioned earlier, Troha entered the day as the short stack and got off to a good start after he managed to double up twice in succession on the first hands.

Sean Winter, Magnus Edengren and Jonathan Cohen were kicked out before the first break of the day.

Brown entered the final table as chip leader. He quickly defeated and eliminated Joshua Thibodaux during an aces vs. aces confrontation.

Luis Velador exited in the eighth position. Next, Brown eliminated four-time bracelet winner Brad Ruben via a rivered straight. 

Tsz Shing finished in sixth place. Robert Tanita was short on the final table after Joao Simao doubled through him. 

Brown busted Tanita shortly after. Yuri Dzivielevski, who was mostly absent in large pots, doubled through Brown. 

The latter got his revenge on the Brazilian poker star, claiming his fourth elimination.

Following the dinner break, Brown kicked out Simao and got to heads-up play. Brown initiated the chip advantage with 2:1 over Troha, expanding the lead to 3:1 at some point.

Things changed in Troha’s favor after Brown was forced to fold. Troha doubled up through his opponent’s hands after he caught him bluffing.

The final hand saw Brown get all in preflop against Troha’s kings. The latter eventually improved to a full house, ending the tourney and grabbing his third bracelet.
