WSOP PA Bracelets still available
WSOP.com has one final online bracelet available for Pennsylvania players. On Oct. 16, players in the state will have a chance to jump in the Online Championship Event. The $1,000 buy-in does not come with a guaranteed prize pool but similar tournaments in the past have generated huge player fields.
Since this is the last chance to grab an online bracelet for the year, players can expect a swollen prize pool.

Pennsylvania resident Andrew Porter scored his third ring. Porter also won a ring in the previous month. He has started an impressive collection of cash and hardware. In addition to the $9,856 he won for first, he now has three rings, one bracelet and 39 WSOP cashes to his name.
James Gilbert made a final table three-peat. He had three final tables during the series before he grabbed his fifth ring. Aubrey Williams also snagged a ring in the last series, the first of her career. Her Event #11 win also came with a prize of $6,604.
