Bradley Anderson has won Event #72 $1,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo to win his first WSOP Gold Bracelet and the big cash prize of $195,565.


Anderson was among 771 opponents seeking a piece of the $3,628,530 prize pool.

The Missoula, MT player now has better than a half million dollars won in live career tournaments.

"It is definitely surreal. Today was a tough grind. I had a big chip lead going into heads-up, and Scott chipped away at me, but I weathered the storm. I wasn't really thinking about the money. I was focused on winning the bracelet." said an emotional Anderson minutes after receiving his bracelet.

When asked about playing with poker legends Boatman and Nguyen at the final table, the champion responded "Barny was beating my butt in a lot of pots today! Men Nguyen is such a character, and it was a good group on the final table today."

Anderson revealed he never intended to play in this tournament until he busted the Main Event.
A PokerNews reporter asked if busting the Main Event was the best thing to happen this year?
"Yeah, Exactly!" Anderson responded "If you offered to me to bust the main and win a side event, I for sure would have taken that."
