David Bach was a happy guy after this great win. He said after the match that, the first win was huge for me. It was bigger than what I imagined and that is why I’m here to play more games. $119,000 sounds good because it is good money for anyone, but I’m spending more than that in buy-ins over the summer.
His first gold bracelet came back in 2009. He and his wife got married in the same year in Las Vegas.
This win of Bach came in a great manner for him, because the table was filled with some of the top professionals of the world. Players like Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Andrew Brown and defeating Eric Rodawig heads-up were at the table looking to win the championship.
