Joe Cada Bags 2nd Bracelet in 2014 WSOP
The WSOP was full of action Sunday night when 2009 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Cada won his second career bracelet.
This win took place in Event#32, $10k, Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em Championship. Cada fought his way through a field of 264 to take the event.
Cada, just 26 years old, from Shelby, Michigan earned himself a healthy prize of $670,041 and secured himself the status of one of the greatest young players in poker. He is the youngest player post Moneymaker to ever win a second bracelet.
Since becoming the youngest-ever Main Event champion in 2009, Cada has on various occasion come close to winning main WSOP events, having taken two fourth-place finishes last year and runner-up in 2012.
At the start of the final table, Cada had the chip lead, but Jeremy Ausmus took it away after sending Dario Sammartino packing in sixth place. Next out the door in fifth was Erick Lindgren. Ausmus then eliminated JC Tran and Cada sent Max Silver in 3rd place for the final heads-up.
Cada was once criticized by the poker community as being a boy amongst the men, who also claimed that he was just lucky to win the main event in 2009. Subsequently, Cada has proven his worth and this win clearly shows that he is a talented professional player.
