Matt Perrins has won a second World Series of Poker bracelet for England in 2011 with his victory at the $1,500 No Limit 2-7 Single Draw event.

“To be honest, Day 1 the first three or four hours, I didn’t really know what was going on here,” Perrins said. “I kept speaking to mates [asking] what to do here, what to do here. As the tournament got deeper, it was kind of similar to Hold’em where opening a lot of pot and three-betting wins you a lot of pots.”

With the win, Perrins takes home $102,105. 

To date, the Brit has won $313,048 in live tournament play.

Here are the final table results from the $1,500 NL 2-7 Single Draw event:

1st: Matt Perrins - $102,105

2nd: Chris Bjorin - $63,112

3rd: Robin Rightmire - $41,643

4th: Bernard Lee - $28,422

5th: Thomas Fuller- $19,906

6th: Josh Brikis - $14,296
7th: Jason Mercier - $10,524


Shockingly, despite the April 15 indictments of the three largest online poker rooms and their subsequent exit from the US market, the World Series of Poker attendance is up over 2010. 

Many experts predicted a sharp decline, primarily due to two of the three Internet poker sites still unable to pay affected players living in the States.  Another consideration is that around 60 percent of those attending the WSOP in recent years have come from online poker satellites. 

Attendance in the first week showed a slight increase over last year. 

Out of the nine events already started or completed, only three have experienced a drop in numbers.
