Brunson 10 Member Wins WSOP Event #52
Las Vegas, Nevada – July 4, 2010 – While the rest of the United States celebrates the 4th of July with all things red, white and blue, DoylesRoom.com player and newest pro Daniel Kelly is seeing green. The 21-year-old college student won World Series of Poker Event #52, a $25,000 buy-in tournament with a $4.5 million prize pool. Kelly has earned a WSOP bracelet, a $1.3 million first place prize, and a place on Doyle Brunson’s team of extraordinary legends-in-the-making.
Kelly’s win came early Saturday evening when his Ace-Ten beat Shawn Buckman’s pocket Jacks.
Daniel Kelly has been competing with three other players at this year’s World Series of Poker for the 7th spot on Doyle Brunson’s team of legends-in-the-making. Each player is awarded points every time they cash in a World Series of Poker event. The player with the most points at the end of the WSOP stands to become The Brunson 10’s next member, but DoylesRoom.com announced that if any player wins a WSOP bracelet, he’d instantly win a spot on The Brunson 10, and thus guaranteeing Kelly’s spot.
