It happens just about every year. Some poker wizard runs super hot and hoards more than their fair share of World Series of Poker gold bracelets.
This year, Germany’s Team PokerStars Pro George Danzer gets the honor of being the first 2014 double bracelet winner of the summer series by claiming victory in Event #38, the $10K Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Championship.
Not only did Danzer do it twice (so far) this series, but both are within a week of each other and in $10K events. Sure, the fields are smaller but the competition is at its peak and Danzer has proved to be worthy and extremely humble champion.

Never an easy road in these big buy-in events, Danzer bested the stacked field of 134 runners to also take home the $352,696 paycheck, pushing his series total up over $770K. He’s also pushed his points lead out over Justin Bonomo and holds a commanding grip on the Bluff/World Series of Poker Player of the Year race .
For runner-up Racener, this is, of course, the 2nd time he’s come second in a big-time WSOP event. You may remember the first was when he played 2nd fiddle to the eventual World Champ Jonathan Duhamel in the 2010 Main Event.
More Danzer? You got it.
