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.
