Benny Glaser Wins His First Gold Bracelet in Event #33!
Brock Parker opens the button to 80,000, and Benny Glaser considers carefully. He eventually calls, eying up Parker's short stack as he does.

Parker draws another single on the second round, but he returns it for one last try on the final round.
With the action complete, Glaser tables the hand to beat: . Parker shows his four-card , drawing live for the double up. But he won't get it. His last card is another , and a pair of eights is no good.
Brock Parker can't quite get his hands on his fourth gold bracelet, denied by his final opponent. He earns a consolation prize worth $84,132 for his runner-up finish.
