Steve Jelinek wins the fifth UK bracelet of this year’s WSOP
British poker pro Steve Jelinek has won event #41, $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 Or Better, at the 2010 WSOP. It is Jelinek’s first WSOP bracelet and he picked up $245,871 for the win. Jelinek’s win is the fifth bracelet for UK players this year after previous wins by Mike Ellis, Richard Ashby, Praz Bansi and James Dempsey. It is already the UK’s most successful WSOP of all time.
Jelinek was delighted with his win, saying, ‘It’s not quite sunk it yet. But you would not know how much this means to me because I’ve been a professional for two-and-a-half years and a serious player for seven…[so] to win this gold bracelet is a great honour.’
