It has finally happened for Eric Lindgren and David Singer. Considered to be a couple of the best poker players without a World Series of Poker bracelet, well they were considered but as of the early morning of June 5th 2008 they both have each won their first ever World Series of Poker bracelet.
The $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event produced David Singer with his first Bracelet, but earlier in the match it did not seem that he would be able to accomplish this step in his career when he first got to the final table. When David sat down at the final table he had the second lowest chip stack with only 83,000 but after playing with a careful game plan and picking the right spots to play, David finally came out victorious.
In the late night $5,000 Mixed holdem (Limit/No Limit) event Eric Lindgren beat out a final table that could have been arguably the most difficult final table in World Series of Poker history. The table saw the likes of Howard Lederer, David Williams, Justin Bonomo, and Rolande de Wolfe and others. Eric truly played great and said that his game plan at the final table was to play tight in the no limit part of the match and to play very loose in the limit part. Just like David Singer in his tournament Eric also had to fight back from a low chip count earlier in the match. Eric even went on saying that he entered another tournament because he thought that his chance of doing better in this tournament was unlikely. Well Eric still did not give up and his fight to get a bracelet paid off and now Eric has his first bracelet to add to his resume.
