Jeff Lisandro Bags Third WSOP Bracelet in Las Vegas
Australian-born poker pro Jeff “The Iceman” Lisandro has added an incredible third bracelet to his 2009 World Series of Poker haul after winning the $2,500 Seven Card Razz event.
Playing at the fourth final table of his Series so far, Lisandro ran over the competition to seize bracelet number three after beating Full Tilt blogger Michael Craig heads-up.
The victory means that Lisandro has remarkably now won a bracelet in all three stud poker disciplines – stud high, stud eight or better and razz – at this year’s Series, marking himself out as arguably the best stud player in the world at the moment.
In addition to his four final tables, Lisandro has also cashed in two other events this year, bringing his total winnings up to $807,491 for the 2009 Series and putting him in pole position to capture the Player of the Year title - although fellow pro Phil Ivey could still mathematically catch the Italian-based Australian.
This year’s treble brings Lisandro’s career bracelet tally up to four and takes his total number of WSOP cashes to 31 – including a 17th place finish in the Main Event in 2006. Such unerring consistency over the years has seen Lisandro comfortably breach the $4 million mark in live tournament earnings and maintain his record of cashing at least four times at each of the previous five WSOPs.
