John Monnette Wins Second WSOP Bracelet in Event 10
John Monnette was looking to take home his second career WSOP bracelet, having won his first in the 2011 $2,500 Eight-Game Mix event. And when the final card was dealt he did just that. The hand wasn’t a terribly exciting one, but as if often the case, it is the outcome that really matters.
Monnette’s heads-up opponent Hu Vihn brought in with the 3 of hearts and moved his last 100,000 in chips into the pot. Monnette raised to complete the action and all the chips went in the middle. The boards ran out Qc-8h/3h-Kd-5c-4s/7s for Vinh and Ac-Qh/Jc-6d-Jd-8c/9h for Monnette.
Monnettes pair of jacks, the same hand he won his first bracelet with, was good enough once again as he added another bracelet to his wrist and $190,826 to his bankroll.
