It sure feels satisfying when you have waited for many years to strike gold in a World Series of Poker (WSOP) event and it finally happens in the year 2022. This is true for American grinder Maxx Coleman who shipped Event #29: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw for $127,809. Coleman, a friend of Ben Diebold (winner of WSOP 2022 Event #10: $10,000 Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed Championship) had his eyes set on the bracelet since it played hard to get.
The newly crowned winner has been grinding for a really long time now. With 44 WSOP cashes and three final tables which date back to 2013, not having a gold bracelet to show after all the WSOP action, must be hard. But, the wait finally ended for Coleman who defeated some strong contenders in the tournament and final table.
Event #29: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw had the great Roland Israelashvili grinding who then exited at the third spot (172nd WSOP cash) for $53,828. Only Israelashvili knows how he does it (cash and not grab a bracelet).
Coming back to Coleman, he was king of No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw after battling a record breaking player field of 437 entries. This figure smashed the previous record of 296 from WSOP 2019. Talking about his latest win, Coleman said, “The bracelet. Just really wanted to win it. Try to play my best. He took the lead there—I had the lead going in—but made some hands to come back.” (sic)
When it came to tackling Brazilian online poker dynamo Yuri Dzivielevski, Coleman said, “I got lucky. I won a flip-ish against him. He played good all day.” After more than 11 hours of play a winner emerged amid all the railing by his friends which also included Diebold. “I can’t let just Ben be the only winner,” commented Coleman on Diebold’s WSOP bracelet win.
Before signing off Coleman said he will play the full schedule so folks can keep an eye out for this bracelet winner to ship more events. For more news and updates on the 2022 WSOP events, keep reading Gutshot Magazine. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Telegram.
