Asi Moshe wins fourth career WSOP bracelet

Asi Moshe joined some select company earlier this week, as he became the 50th person to win four or more World Series of Poker bracelets.

Moshe’s latest bracelet win came in the €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha/No-Limit Hold’em Mixed tournament at this year’s World Series of Poker Europe. Moshe outlasted a 279-player field in the tournament to cash €97,465 ($108,000 US).

It was Moshe’s second WSOP win of 2019, as he previously won the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty tournament at this year’s WSOP in Las Vegas. His cash for that win was $253,933.

His other two WSOP victories came in the €1,650 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed Deepstack tournament at the 2018 WSOPE, and the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em tournament at the 2014 WSOP. In total he has posted 34 cashes in WSOP events which has earned him just over $2.2 million.

In the Mixed tournament, Moshe put of a dominating performance leading the tournament in chips almost exclusively from the start of Day 2 to the final hand.

When the final table began, he had just over 1.8 million chips, putting him ahead of his nearest opponent, Kristoffer Rasmussen by over 300,000 chips, or 12 big blinds. Naturally it came down to Moshe and Rasmussen heads-up for the tournament title.

When heads-up play began Moshe had a massive chip lead on Rasmussen with 7.2 million chips to Rasmussen’s 1.1 million. With such a large chip lead it was not much of a surprise when heads-up play lasted only two hands.

The final hand of the tournament was played as No-Limit Hold’em. Moshe pushed all-in preflop and Rasmussen made the call. Moshe showed Jc-10d, while Rasmussen held Qh-Js putting him ahead.

The flop of Kd-Qs-8c gave Rasmussen a pair of Queens but it also gave Moshe an open-ended straight draw. He hit it on the turn when the 9s fell giving Moshe a King-high straight. Rasmussen still had a few outs to chop the pot, but he whiffed on the river when the 6d dropped giving Moshe the hand and the tournament.

For second place Rasmussen cashed €60,230 ($66,855 US).
