Ravid “jerbi9999” Garbi of Israel has won his first bracelet in Event #58: $5,000 No Limit Hold’em 6-Handed Championship. Garbi battled his way through a 672-entry field to end up heads-up against bracelet winner Chris Moorman. He ultimately denied the British online legend his second bracelet to win his first gold and the first-place prize of $531,513. Moorman received $398,393 for finishing runner-up.
This is by far Garbi’s biggest lifetime score to date. The Israeli’s lifetime live earnings on The Hendon Mob top at just $29,132, and while this is the third cash for Garbi during this GGPoker World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online series, it’s the first time he’s gotten to the final 100. Needless to say, the third time ended up being the charm.
Moorman and Garbi played heads up for about 30 minutes, where the Brit chipped back up from an initial deficit to even the stacks and take the lead. He dropped back again, then doubled into the lead on a cooler that saw Moorman flop top boat against the trip queens of Garbi.
But Garbi came back swinging with a huge double of his own when he flopped the flush against Moorman. That left Moorman short-stacked, and his money went in soon after when he called off a shove from Garbi with queen-ten. Garbi held king-eight and five blanks later, it was all over. Moorman took second for almost $400K, adding to his countless live and online winnings. The $531,513 win was a bigger deal for Garbi as it was his biggest lifetime score and first bracelet.
