Mixed Games Wizard James “Andy McLEOD” Obst Finally Win His First Bracelet!

One of the most succesful online tournament players ever, James “Andy McLEOD” Obst, claimed his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet Thursday evening in the 2017 WSOP’s Event #26, $10,000 Razz Championship.

Prior to this win, Obst had multiple WSOP final table finishes from previous years and he made also a deep run in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, eventually finishing in 13th place for $427,930. However, this time the 26-year-old Australian tournament pro was able to seal the deal and win his first bracelet after defeating Eric Kurtzman in the heads-up play.

The $10,000 Razz Championship attracted a total of 97 players this year and the final table featured players like Nick Schulman and Brandon Shack-Harris, who are both two-time WSOP bracelets winners.
