Steven Loube claims $267,345 main prize and his first bracelet in Event 47
Atlanta Lawyer Steven Loube scored his first WSOP bracelet and a $267,345 first prize Thursday in the World Series of Poker event 47 - $1,500 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, besting a field of 978.
It was the first World Series of Poker event the 34-year-old personal injury attorney had ever entered, and a notable victory against the many experienced and respected players who registered for the event.
Loube admitted he had been extremely nervous about playing in the tournament, and had difficulty sleeping over the three days of the competition, but insomnia certainly did not stop him from mixing it up with the professionals and eventually leading the field.
On the final table Loube played a shrewd game to end up three-handed against Timothy Finne and Roch Cousineau, where the action moved up a gear, leading to a winner in just an hour.
Loube dismissed Cousineau to enter the heads up against Timothy Finne with a 3 to 1 advantage, which he leveraged into a win in short order.
Other final table pay days were:
Timothy Finne $165,486
Roch Cousineau $103,538
Cameron McKinley $75,151
Charalampos Lappas $55,479
Sonu Sharma $41,589
Paul Taylor $31,634
Kyle Carlston $24,386
Paul Ewen $19,052
