David Singer Wins First WSOP Bracelet

He fought through a field of 713 players, came back from a chip deficit at the final table, and kept his faith through a tough heads-up battle to win the $1,500 Pot Limit Hold’em tournament at the 2008 WSOP. Along with the $214,131, David Singer finally took home a WSOP title.

There are a number of players in poker who are quite accomplished, have paid their dues in poker, and show millions of dollars in tournament winnings…but have no World Series of Poker title. David was one of those players… Before tonight’s long-awaited victory, he had over $3.8 million in tournament earnings (this win puts him over $4 million), 8 WPT cashes (two of which were televised final tables), and 16 WSOP cashes (half of which were final tables). Most notably in the past two years of the WSOP, he gained recognition for finishing in sixth place both years in the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. tournament, arguably the most prestigious of the WSOP events in recent years. He also won the Mirage Poker Showdown heads-up tournament in 2006 and the Caesars Palace Classic main event for $1 million in 2007.

All of that, and he finally now has a WSOP bracelet.

Well-deserved and well done, David. Congratulations!
