In what was his fourth World Series of Poker final table, second in 2015, Idaho's Kevin MacPhee captured his first bracelet Sunday night, winning the 2015 WSOP Event #56: $5,000 Turbo No-Limit Hold'em.

"Winning a bracelet has always been a big goal for me since I started coming and playing World Series events," he said. "I have the EPT title (Berlin 2010), so the bracelet is another feather in the cap so to speak, another part of the Triple Crown, and I'm pretty happy to finally ship one."

The event played down to 54 and into the money on Day 1, then quickly to a final table on Day 2.

Once they got shorthanded, MacPhee picked up all the momentum, and eventually the win. Third-place finisher Pascal Theodosiadis folded queens in a spot where he could have knocked both MacPhee and runner-up Igor Yaroshevskyy out and booked a win, then MacPhee picked up kings versus Theodosiadis' ace-king in what would have to be considered a cooler three handed to send him to the rail and take an insurmountable lead into heads-up play.

"You've just got to keep putting yourself in the spot to get lucky," said MacPhee, who collected a $490,800 first-place prize with the win.
