Harrison Gimbel Completes Triple Crown with First WSOP Bracelet
 

Harrison Gimbel

Poker has a new triple crown winner. The name, Harrison Gimbel. After a near 14-hour grind on Day 3 of Event #68: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em where Gimbel returned as the second shortest stack out of 37 players, Gimbel defeated Chance Kornuth heads-up to claim his first World Series of Poker bracelet and the last missing piece of poker's triple crown.

Gimbel earned a score of $645,922 but most importantly, he won his first WSOP gold bracelet. Kornuth received $399,132, just missing out on his second WSOP title.

"It was a swingy day," Gimbel said when asked about Day 3. "I was anywhere from chip leader to down to four bigs maybe 12 times I felt like in this tournament. It's nice to get a win, it's my first at the World Series. I'm happy. Chance is a hell of a player. It was a really fast heads up, I wasn't expecting that."

With the win, Gimbel more than triples his career WSOP earnings. Currently sitting at $207,606, the best of Gimbel's 19 cashes came with his deepest run when he finished fourth in a $1,500 Ante Only event back in 2012.

Entering the day at the very bottom of the leaderboard, Gimbel found aces early to double through Konstaninos Nanos and a little while after came from behind to double through Matt Salsberg finding a jack with king-jack against Salsberg's ace-ten. Gimbel then leaped up the board with a massive pot against Jia Liu. Gimbel four-bet jammed all-in with ace-eight and Liu put him at risk with ace-queen. Gimbel made a miracle straight on the turn and took over the chip lead.

Many notables fell as the field thinned before the final table. Ryan Laplante (32nd - $15,806) went out early, as did Daniel Negreanu (29th - $15,806) and Kevin Saul (28th - $15,806). Nanos (15th - $29,878) and Salsberg (13th - $29,878) made it a bit deeper but ultimately fizzled out.

Action at the final table got underway quickly. Before the official final table could even be set two players were busted on the same hand. Falling toJohn Griffin, both Florentino Coalla and James Gilbert were removed when they ran into Griffin's pocket kings.

On just the second hand of the final table, Kris Homerding fell to Chris Farmer. Twelve hands later the first of the two Brazilians were eliminated as Vinicius De Silva was busted by Griffin. Quite a while passed before the second Brazilian, Enio Bozzano departed, becoming Gimbel's first casualty.

Gimbel went right back to work taking out Farmer in fifth. One-time chip leader Griffin was the next to go; he made a move on the river after flopping a pair of aces but Kornuth flopped a set and Griffin was snuffed. Ryan Van Sanford was the last player to be eliminated before the heads-up battle began. Van Sanford got his chips in good with ace-queen but Kornuth flopped a pair with ace-jack and his run came to an end.

The heads up battle only lasted seven hands. Gimbel doubled up on the third hand to draw even and a few hands later a sick cooler ended it all. Kornuth ran pocket tens into Gimbel's pocket queens and Gimbel had Kornuth out chipped by a single ante to claim the win.
