Terrence Chan, a famous Canadian Hole 'em specialist, recently made a significant breakthrough after winning his first World Series of Poker bracelet. Chan secured his first WSoP cash in 2005 after finishing position 12 in the $2,500 pot limit hold'em tournament.

Since then, the player from Vancouver, Canada, who also has experience working in the poker industry and competing as a professional MMA fighter, has cashed in 44 bracelet events, earning approximately $900,000 in WSOP earnings.

Chan secured the latest online poker victory after more than 15 years of professional competition and numerous close calls. In the WSOP Online $2,500 limit hold'em championship on GGPoker, he outlasted a field of 124 competitors, winning $64,021 and the trophy.

Following the momentous win, the video poker player said on Twitter:

“We got em! No screenshot because I had my whole family sweating and forgot. Finally off the schneid after 16 years of WSOPs!”

Chan finished eighth at the final table of the series, with limit hold'em accounting for seven of those finishes. His tournament earnings are now about $1.3 million thanks to this win.

Chan was one of many well-known players who advanced far in this tournament. Other players include:

  • European Poker Tour champion Dzmitry Urbanovich (20th)
  • Bracelet winner Espen Sandvik (19th)
  • 2019 WSOP main event runner-up Dario Sammartino (14th)
  • Six-time bracelet winner Josh Arieh (13th)
  • Samuel Bernabeu (8th)
  • Jesse Lonis (6th)
  • 2022 WSOP main event champion Espen Jorstad (2nd)

The win means Chan denied Jorstad a third bracelet. In addition to winning the tag team competition with Patrick Leonard and the $10,000,000 poker world championship, Jorstad from Norway earned two in 2022. His earnings have increased to over $15.6 million after receiving $48,330 for placing second in this competition.

Here is how the final table looked like on the online poker site:

  • Terrence Chan - $64,021
  • Espen Jorstad - $48,330
  • Kostya Holskiy - $36,485
  • Harald Casagrande - $27,547
  • Jacopo Achille - $20,972
  • Jesse Lonis - $15,696
  • Ben Underwood - $$11,849
  • Samuel Bernabeu - $8,945
  • Tim Rutherford - $6,753
