$2.5k NLHE Six-Max - A Bracelet Repeat!
The heads up battle between Joe Serock and Brock Parker was a vicious one. Parker pounded on Serock over and over again. It was clear that Parker was there to dominate. He wanted to win and he wanted to do so quickly. He pushed the action and took down pot after pot without a showdown.
The Penultimate Hand
Brock Parker made it 200,000 to go, something he did nearly every chance he could on the button, and Joe Serock called. The flop came down 6♥ K♦ 9♥.
Serock checked and Parker made it 325,000 to go. Serock check-raised it to 825,000 and Parker called. The turn was the 5♣ and both players checked. The river produced the Q♦. Serock checked one last time and Parker considered betting before he checked behind. Serock turned over 8♠ T♠ and Brock turned up K♦ 8♦.
A look of frustration washed over Serock's face as the pot was shipped to Parker. This pot sent Parker over the 2 million chip mark while Parker was knocked back to under 2 million.
And It's Ovarrr!
Joe Serock made it 200,000 preflop and Parker pushed forward two stacks of green chips which amounted to 1 million. Serock shoved all in and it was go time. Parker called and turned over pocket queens while Serock tabled his pocket tens.
The bland board missed Serock but a queen on the river was just like a cherry on top of Parker's two bracelet sundae.
Joe Serock will take home $341,783 for his runner up finish. It was his first WSOP final table and the win will nearly quadruple his cumulative lifetime earnings. He played well but that will be little consolation to someone who just an hour ago had a WSOP bracelet within arms reach.
Tonight's win is Brock Parker's second so far at this year's WSOP, and it only took him four days to do so.
More people have been in space than have won two bracelets within one WSOP, certainly an accomplishment to be proud of.
If Parker keeps this up there will be no touching him for WSOP Player of the Year, just another accolade to add to the pile.
