On June 7, Brock Parker won his first gold bracelet in event No. 14 ($2,500 six-handed limit hold'em) at the World Series of Poker, along with $223,688 in prize money. The morning after his victory, Parker entered event No. 19 ($2,500 six-handed no-limit hold'em), and he survived day 1 on June 8. June 9 saw Parker roll into the money and make the final day, just one of 11 players remaining. On Wednesday, June 10, Parker pulled off the unthinkable and won his second gold bracelet in four days time. Parker took home $552,745 for his second WSOP victory and the respect of the poker world for his incredible consistency.
