Brock Parker burst onto the live poker scene in 2009 when, in a single week, he went back-to-back in WSOP events to claim his first two bracelets. Since that time Parker has not only become a bit of a master of all the games, but he’s peeled off five six-figure scores and accumulated over $3M in live tournament earnings.
What we’re getting at is he’s a total boss and not just because his online name harkens to Tony Soprano.
Last night, he put a hit on the entire field of the $10K Omaha Hi-Lo Championship to claim his 3rd career WSOP bracelet (the same number as Vanessa Selbst) and a favorable $443,407.
The field, being a $10K, was absolutely stacked and it was Parker who rose to the top and perhaps, if he wasn’t already considered so, ascends into elite company. He also jumps to the front of the line in the current WSOP Player of the Year rankings, just ahead of the aforementioned Vanessa Selbst.
Let’s face it – Limit Omaha Hi/Lo isn’t the most well-known of poker disciplines but the gang over at PokerNews still have a complete write up of everything Brock. Check it out.
