David Bach wins 2nd bracelet of the 2017 WSOP

Bach is the Mixed Games King with victory in the HORSE and Dealer's Choice Championships.

David Bach 2017 WSOP

There is always at least one double bracelet every year at the World Series of Poker and this year that honour goes to David Bach of the United States. 

On June 5 he won the $10,000 Dealer's Choice Championship for $119,399 and just 10 days later he proved his Mixed Games chops once again, taking down the $10,000 HORSE Championship for $383,208.

That time he defeated a very tough final table that included Jason Mercier and Daniel Negreanu making his third final table of the series. 

This is Bach's third career bracelet, all of which have been in Mixed Games, as he is also the $50,000 HORSE Champion (The event that evolved into the Players Championship) from 2009. 

Remarkably, at the time of writing, Bach currently stands in just 14th place in the 2017 Player of the Year standings, with Millionaire Maker champion Pablo Mariz in top spot.

    I'm actually doing a bit of research on them as we speak but didnt know Doug did a video, so I will be doing so now thanks.

    They seem silly and based entirely on size of prize, which seems odd to me

    ROI I meant, not size of prize
