One More WSOP Bracelet for Kahle Burns This Week

WSOP Europe Player Wins Two Bracelets In a Row
WSOP Europe 2019 awarded one player with two bracelets in just one week.

Whether he is just lucky or he knows some poker tricks unavailable to the rest of us, it doesn’t really matter anymore. What matters is that Kahle Burns, an Australian poker pro, managed to win two WSOP bracelets in just one week. He had something to say about this great success:

“For me, the bracelet is definitely a bucket list thing. I definitely didn’t want to exit poker and not win one, but in terms of the prestige of a bracelet, I feel like it is great to win one. But at the same time, anybody can win one too and it doesn’t necessarily mean you are a fantastic poker player. Obviously, in this instance, since it is a 25k, there are some very strong players.”

Who’s the Lucky Guy?

Kahle Burns is a man from Australia who started small by playing some online poker. Once he realized he was actually very good at it, he moved to some more serious events such as free pub poker, eventually ending up at real-money games in real-time casinos.

In July 2019, he was so close to winning the first WSOP bracelet in the $10,000 No Limit Hold’em Six-Handed Championship. Unfortunately, he finished second and missed out on both the bracelet and the prize of $630,000.

The First WSOP Bracelet

Kahle Burns, a poker pro from Melbourne, played on an extremely high level last week, which resulted in him winning his first WSOP gold bracelet. On his way to success, he went through a total of 83 entries, thus winning the 2019 WSOP Europe €25,500 ‘Platinum High Roller’ no-limit hold’em event, as well as the top prize of $662,540.

It wasn’t easy for Burns to stay concentrated, knowing that he’s surrounded by some of the most talented professional poker players. In the end, he came out as a winner after beating Sam Trickett and Robert Campbell, the latter one being rated as number two on the WSOP Player of the Year board.

The Second WSOP Bracelet

Only four days after winning his first WSOP bracelet, Burns had a reason to celebrate again. At the 2019 WSOP Europe €2,500 short deck no-limit hold’em event, he defeated a field of 179 entries and added $113,036 to his account. This win also updated his live tournament profit that now goes a little bit above $6.1 million.

WSOP Bracelet Brings Additional Benefits

Some players swear that the main reason to become a regular at these events is their pure love for the game of poker, while others are more honest and admit that money is their main motivation. Additionally, if you win a bracelet, there’s probably nothing else that can make you as happy that day.

However, there is more than that, but only for the best. That’s why Burns, being the champion of the event, also attained 468 Card Player Player of the Year points. In this year’s Player of the Year race, Burns holds a good 14th position with a total of 3,978 points collected at the moment. Moreover, in 2019, he has three titles and nine final-table finishes, which resulted in his total earnings of $2,906,173.

This year was definitely one of Burns’ best so far, and he brought it to an end in great style indeed. He was successful in more than 15 events this year, and we can’t wait to see what he will do in future tournaments.
