Erick Lindgren won WSOP Player of the Year
The 31 years player from Full Tilt Poker, was unanimously considered the best player world that had never won a WSOP bracelet. The malapata that came to an end this year with a victory in the $ 5,000 Mixed Hold'em. In a field of 332 players Lindgren played great poker and won his 1st bracelet. Well the $ 374,505 for the victory was nice but the bracelte...
In addition to this victory Lindgren had other results of great value, being the most important of them all the 3rd place in the $ 50K HORSE Championship, an event won by Scotty Nguyen. For this 3rd place ( the second biggest tournament of the World Series ) Lindgren won $ 781,440. Lindgren also finished in 4th place in the Event 18 - No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball with rebuys - earning $ 156,151.
Erick Lindgren got ITM in 5 tournments of the wsop (a total of more than $ 1.3 million), Barry Greenstein lost the race with him for only 10 points of difference, Greenstein that reached more times ITM than Lindgren ( 6 times ) but with the worst end position. For this honor Erick Lindgren received a custom Harley-Davidson, who immediately announced that it would have on his brother Doug Lindgren. I would love to be his brother.LOL. The girl near the Harley doesn´t make part of the pack.
