One payer who is no stranger to success in big tournaments is Brent Carter. He’s an old hand on the professional circuit, and it’s safe to say that he’s many pretenders come and go in the fast paced modern game. He’s one of those players with a reputation that will counter any detractors, and his experience continues to serve him very well around the most prestigious top tables.
Carter has won two highly prized WSOP bracelets over the course of an illustrious career. His first bracelet win was in 1991 at the final table of the $1,5K No Limit Hold’Em event, when he took home $166,800. As though one fantastic gold bracelet wasn’t enough, he went on to win a second in 1994. This time he triumphed in the final event of the $1,5K Pot Limit Omaha game, to the tune of $169,200. He’s achieved many glorious wins since then, but is yet to attain a third bracelet. Close observers of the game will tell you that he’s certainly not out of the running, and that he’s one to watch at whatever table he decides to join.
Carter has the honor of appearing 7th on the list of players who’ve achieved the highest number of WSOP cashes. He laughingly states that he might rank higher if he just played the increasingly popular game of Hold’Em. He’s rightly proud of his two bracelets, and no one will be too surprised if he ends up with a third for his considerable efforts.
