Spotted in the field here in the early goings on Event 42 are three newly-crowned gold bracelet winners from 2012. Benjamin Scholl, winner of Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em, is seated at Table 358 and Chris Tryba, winner of Event 35: $2,500 Mixed Hold'em, is seated at Table 352. Both of them in Seat 3 at their respective tables and they will be looking to earn a second gold bracelet of the year.
In Scholl's win, he bested a field of 166 players to earn just over $200,000, defeating Andrew Prock heads up. Tryba had to wade through a larger field of 393 players to earn over $210,000.
Another 2012 bracelet winner was Michael Gathy and he took home over $440,000 after beating out more than 2,700 players to take the title in Event 21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em. In doing so, Gathy became the second gold bracelet winner from Belgium. He's seated over at Table 362.
Gathy came very close to earning his second piece of gold at this Series after he final tabled the event Tryba won. Unfortunately for Gathy, his run ended in fifth place, which surely leaves the taste for number two bitterly lingering in his mouth.
We'll be keeping a close eye on these three to see how they progress, or digress, during the day in quest for a second WSOP title.
