Robert Campbell doubles up on bracelets at 2019 WSOP

We have our first double bracelet winner at this year’s World Series on Poker and his name is Rovert Campbell.

Australia’s Campbell became the first player to win multiple WSOP bracelets at this year’s WSOP after claiming his second in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship. A few weeks ago Campbell claimed his first career WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw tournament.

The two wins added over $500,000 to Campbell’s bankroll. In the Lowball tournament, he cashed $144,027, and he added another $385,763 in the Seven Card Stud Championship. His career live-poker earnings now stand at just under $1.3 million.

How did Robert Campbell win Seven Card Stud event?

To add his second WSOP in less than a month, Campbell had to survive a very strong final table in the Seven Card Stud tournament. At the eight-player final table there were a combined 14 WSOP bracelets.

When only two were left standing, it came down to Campbell and Yueqi Zhu heads-up. Zhu won a WSOP bracelet last year in the Mixed $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better; Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better; Big O (5-Card PLO/8) tournament.

He also just missed out on another bracelet a few days ago when he finished second in this year’s $1,500 Omaha Mix tournament. Unfortunately for Zhu he’d come up just short again against Campbell.

Campbell went into heads-up play with the chip lead with 5.3 million chips to Zhu’s 3.7 million. He went on to steamroll over Zhu in what turned out to be a very short heads-up battle.

Heading into the final hand Campbell’s chip lead had grown to a 22-to-1 advantage.

In that final hand, the extremely short-stacked Zhu was all-in after the first three cards were dealt. Zhu had 10h-10s-Qs and Campbell had Ah-10c-Ac. After sixth street was rolled out Campbell had Ah-10c-Ac-Qd-Jh-8s versus Zhu’s 10-h-10s-Qs-3h-Qh-5s. That left Campbell trailing with a pair of Aces to Zhu’s two pair, tens and Queens.

On seventh street Zhu was dealt the 4c and was stuck with the two pair. Campbell caught the 9h giving him a Queen-high straight, the hand and the tournament win.

Zhu cashed $238,420 to finish second.
