WSOP $1,500 NLHE: “Got 6th After a Brutal Beat or Two”


“Got 6th after a brutal beat or two. Cashed for $87k or so.” That was a Tweet from Dan WretchyMartin (pictured), who cashed for $87,000 after taking sixth place in Event #28 of the 2013 World Series of Poker, a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament. He added that while he was disappointed with the result, he appreciated all of the love from the community: “Infinite thanks to all the support out there guys, much love to you all.”

Event #28 marked Martin’s first WSOP final table. He started it off by casting Daniel Bishopaway in eighth place after Bishop 3bet all-in before the flop with Q-J. Martin made the call with K-6 and the board ran out A-A-4-3-6, giving him aces-up for the win and the fourth largest stack out of the seven players remaining.

However, Martin was ultimately crippled on the 68th hand of final table play after 5betting all-in before the flop with Q-Q. Masayuki Nagata called all-in with J-J and immediately hit a jack on the flop to take the lead. Martin picked up a flush draw on the turn, but whiffed on the river and was sunk.

Five hands later, Martin open-shoved all-in with A-5, but ran into Jason Duval‘s A-8. Duval hit an eight on the flop and never looked back, eliminating Martin in sixth place for $87,000.

Martin received complimentary Tweets from around the poker world, with PocketFiver Jared TheWacoKiddHamby commenting, “@Wretchy sick run, gross beat. feel awful for you. you will be back tho, chin up #boss.” Bryan Iknewwwit Leskowitz added, “Siiigh GGs boys @Wretchy @poochpoker. Get em next time. Nice run.”

    • Well on Day 1 he was gifted 70k when he got AQ AIP vs A2. 14 players let loses JJ vs AK for about 20-30% of the chips in play. Then lost another 1.4 mill pot getting it in JJ vs 99 AIP with 12 or so people left. Not saying he didn’t put a beat on anyone the whole tournament but you’re an idiot.
