Professional poker player Ian Johns won his second gold bracelet in the 2016 H.O.R.S.E. tournament. Though last in chips at the end of the first day, he rallied subsequent days and came back to defeat a table of fellow top poker professinals. His take home for his work was $212,604. To date his WSOP earnings hover in the $700,000 range. The outcome shows that nothing is cast in stone in poker. From lowest in chip stack on day one to winner of the tournament demonstrates the highs and lows poker players often go through. His previous gold bracelet was ten year ago.
H.O.R.S.E. has been featured at the WSOP for 15 years. It’s a mix of five poker games including Holdem, Omaha High Low, Razz, Seven Card Stud and Stud Eight or Better. Mix game tournaments have become more popular. These types of tournaments cover a wider spectrum of poker games. The first H.O.R.S.E. tournament was won by Doyle Brunson. Players in these games are usually more well rounded poker players.
