Russia has its second World Series of Poker bracelet with Mikhail Lakhitov winning the $2,500 No Limit Hold’em.  (Михаил Lakhitov выигрывает первый Мировой Серии Покера браслет)

Lakhitov cashed out $749,610 from the event.  Lakhitov is a former member of the Russian Army.

“Last year, in 2010, my best finish was an eighth place,” said Lakhitov, through a translator. “I didn’t understand about the bracelet. It was my first WSOP. This year, on the way to Las Vegas, I promised my lovely wife that I would win one bracelet. This motivation pushed me to five cashes and two final tables already.”

Fellow Russian poker player Viacheslav Zhukov took home the first 2011 WSOP bracelet last week when he was crowned the champion of Event #10, the $10,000 buy-in Omaha high-low split eight-or-better event. 

 

Here are the official results for Event 36, $2,500 No Limit Hold’em:

▪    Mikhail Lakhitov - $749,610

▪    Hassan Babajane - $463,480

▪    Thomas Middleton - $305,015

▪    Thomas Miller - $219,885

▪    Eddy Sabat - $160,949
