Coast-to-Coast Collopy Captures First Bracelet

The second champion of the World Series of Poker Asia Pacific has been crowned with Jim Collopy topping the field here in Event 2: AU$1,650 Pot Limit Omaha.

172 entrants took to the felt three days ago with aims of capturing the first Omaha bracelet crowned here in Australia. Although the first two days of play saw chips fly at a furious rate, the final table would be a much calmer affair.

The big name pros such as Marvin Rettenmaier, Mike Leah and Dan Shak wouldn’t be able to capture their first bracelet as Australian’s Martin Kozlov, Paul Sharbanee, Scott Reid and Tino Lechich all put up a fight before falling to the rail.

When it came down to crunch time however just one Australian would hold the hopes of the country looking at claiming the first bracelet on home soil. Although possessing experiencing beyond his years on the nose bleed cash game felt online, Edison Nguyen’s run would end in 2nd place as Jim Collopy lead from coast-to-coast to capture his first gold bracelet.

After winning the AU$2,250 PLO at the Aussie Millions in 2012 for AU$59,760 and taking 2nd to Gus Hansen at the WSOP Europe £10,000 High Roller Heads-Up for £178,211, this is Collopy’s greatest poker accomplishment to date.

Congratulations to Jim “Mr_BigQueso” Collopy for winning the Event 2 gold bracelet and AU$69,662 in prize money.

Nguyen Exits in 2nd; Collopy Wins Event 2!

Edison Nguyen
Edison Nguyen eliminated in 2nd place

Hand #150

Jim Collopy announced pot and raised to 36,000. Edison Nguyen announced re-pot and found himself all in for exactly his last 108,000.

Collopy: A T 9 4
Nguyen: A K T 5

With Nguyen in the lead, the 2 T 8 flop kept him there, but it would be the 9 on the turn that would send the Australian tumbling to a disadvantage.

Needing only a king to keep his hopes alive here in Event 2, Nguyen’s – and many Australian’s dreams of seeing a local champion – would end with the dealer delivering the J on the river.

For his efforts, Nguyen collected AU$43,050 for his 2nd place finish while Collopy will collect a WSOP gold bracelet and AU$69,662 for his superb run in this tournament.

Collopy Takes Massive Lead

Hand #148

Jim Collopy opened the button and Edison Nguyen called. An unknown flop was spread on the felt and Nguyen check-folded.

Hand #149

Edison Nguyen raised the button to 24,000 and Jim Collopy then slowly three-bet the pot. Nguyen then re-potted and Collopy called all in. Below is how their cards looked.

Collopy: A A 9 8
Nguyen: K K Q T

By the time the board had ran out Q 4 3 6 7, Collopy had a sweat on the turn, but managed to double up to around 666,000. Following that hand, Nguyen is left with just 110,000.

Rounding Out the Level

Hand #143

Jim Collopy opened to 20,000 and Edison Nguyen made the call to see a 4 2 8 flop fall and Nguyen check to Collopy. The American bet out 20,000 and Nguyen swiftly mucked.

Hand #144

Edison Nguyen made it 20,000 to go and Jim Collopy called from the big to see a 2 K 9 flop spread by the dealer.

Nguyen bet out 20,000 and Collopy check-called as the T landed on the turn. Both players checked as the 4 completed the board on the river and Collopy led out for 50,000.

Although contemplating for a few moments, Nguyen would eventually release his hand.

Hand #145

Edison Nguyen received a walk.

Hand #146

Edison Nguyen made it 20,000 from the button and Jim Collopy made the call as the dealer dropped a K K 8 flop.

After nearly a minute in the tank, Nguyen made the call before the dealer delivered the 8 on the river. Collopy checked and Nguyen tapped the table behind him.

Collopy sighed and showed his A T, but it would be Nguyen’s J J 8 3 for trips to win the pot.

Hand #147

Jim Collopy made it 20,000 and Edison Nguyen made the call to see a 6 J 8 flop land. Both players checked and the A fell on the turn with both players checking again.

Hand #121

Jim Collopy made it 20,000 from the button and Edison Nguyen made the call to see a K 6 3 flop fall.
