Brad Albrinck
Event #2
No-Limit Hold'em Multi-Flight
Buy-In: $400
Entries: 3,334
Prize Pool: $1,100,220

The three-ring club now has a new member. Brad Albrinck won his third career World Series of Poker Circuit ring late Sunday evening after he navigated his way through 3,334 entrants in Event #2: $400 No-Limit Hold'em Multi-Flight at Harrah’s Cherokee.

The tournament featured four separate starting flights, which combined to bring in a total prize pool of $1,100,220.

Albrinck had one cash in Flight B for $633 but was able to make a Day 2 birth in the final starting flight, bagging 287,000 in chips.

Among a group of 168 advancing players, Albrinck chipped up on Day 2 and eventually made the final table with the most chips.

It was a battle to the finish line for Albrinck, but he was able to accumulate every chip in play and took home a six-figure payday of $141,330 along with his shiny gold ring.

“It feels great,” Albrinck said after his victory.

“This was a massive field that had really good players make it to the end, it wasn’t an easy road to get through, but I had a fair share of luck that helped”

Albrinck has built up quite the poker resume, holding over $1.4 million in lifetime WSOP earnings, but his last victory came back in 2016 when he won the Main event here for $275,877.

“It feels really good to get back on a big score, it’s been a long time coming.”
