Greenwood Breaks Through With First Bracelet

Sam Greenwood (pictured) scored the first WSOP bracelet of his career and the first one for Canada in 2015, winning Event #22: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em for $318,977. He topped a field of 1,915 runners. It's Greenwood's first win in a live tournament.

“I won most of my preflop all ins and didn't step on any landmines,” he said. “I made some hands and got paid off when I did.”

Greenwood defeated Cole Jackson heads up. It's not often you don't have a sweat in poker, but Greenwood managed to take the bracelet with a cinch hand after he called a min-raise to 160,000 and then checked a {2-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop. Jackson bet 150,000, and Greenwood raised to 400,000. Jackson called, and Greenwood bet 575,000 on the {5-Spades} turn. Jackson shipped it, and Greenwood snapped it off with {j-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. That was it, as Jackson was dead with the {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

Others making the final day included John Myung (5th - $71,904), Stephen Chidwick (14th - $14,391), Lisa Hamilton (15th - $14,391), Ryan Tepen (17th - $11,495), Nacho Barbero (18th - $11,495), and Paul Darden (19th - $9,306).

“It's great,” Greenwood said of being the first Canadian winner this year. “As someone who doesn't necessarily like standing around for the anthems, I like the fact that I'm the one Canadian to get the anthem.”
