Brandon Barnette

The last WSOP bracelet winner in the field, Brandon Barnette, has hit the rail.

He won this very same event in 2015 for $75,704, and cashed last year in 55th place for a payout of $1,278. Today's finish means Barnette has cashed in this event for three years in a row. Interestingly enough, these are also his only career cashes.

In his final hand, Barnette got his remaining stack in the middle with {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and was flipping with Jermel Stephens' {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

The board ran out {8-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{9-Spades}{4-Clubs} and Barnette's impressive run was over.
