2011 WSOP Updates

Here are your latest 2011 WSOP updates from Las Vegas as three more bracelets were awarded to Amir Lehavot, Harrison Wilder and Allen Bari

There were three more 2011 WSOP bracelets awarded on Sunday to Amir Lehavot, Harrison Wilder and Allen Bari.

Lehavot, a San Francisco native, enjoyed a fourth place finish and $421,680 cashout at the WPT LA Poker Classic back in February.  Now he walks away with a cool $573,456 after beating Jarred Solomon heads up at the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em Championship.

“Finishing first feels so much better,” said Lehavot. “LAPC was a very big score for me, but you always have that bittersweet feeling when it’s not first place, because you feel like an opportunity was lost.”
