Brookshire takes WSOP event 46.

By RP, June 25, 2018

Against the odds, Baltimore-native David Brookshire outplayed a field of 402 players in the World Series of Poker’s Event 46, the $2,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo / Stud Hi-Lo for a payday of $214,291 and his first WSOP bracelet.

Brookshire (35) fought a hard fight in heads-up play against Nevada’s Brendon Taylor who dominated most of the final table.

“This is a great event,” Brookshire said. “I love all the mixed-games events and now I’m going to have a bankroll to be able to play all of them for the next few years, hopefully. I’ve got to run it up. There’s a lot of events I’ve missed because I can’t afford to play them, and that’s going to change right now.”

Final Table Payouts were:

1: David Brookshire, $214,291
2: Brendan Taylor, $132,443
3: Daniel Ospina, $89,968
4: Ian Shaw, $62,331
5: Tyler Groth, $44,059
6: Hani Awad, $31,789
7: William Shelton, $23,429
8: Eric Rodawig, $17,628
