Nick Binger, Tony Dunst and Andrew LichtenbergerNick Binger, Tony Dunst and Andrew Lichtenberger (pictured) are living up to their reputation at the ongoing World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Bracelet Series.

The trio, who have been imparting their knowledge and sharing their expertise to aspiring poker pros via the World Poker Tour’s official poker education platform LearnWPT, have recently achieved great results in their online bracelet journey.

Dunst has proven yet again that his skills are not just confined within the four corners of the broadcast booth.

While he has made a name for himself both as a WPT commentator and LearnWPT instructor, the American poker pro has had some huge accomplishments at the tournament felts, with more than $3.8 million in total live earnings.

On July 21, Dunst captured his second gold bracelet, after outclassing a field of 1,361 entries in Event #21: $777 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed. He walked away with $168,342.09 for that stellar performance. He got off to a good start just when the series kicked off after placing third in Event #1 for $57,881. The 35-year-old booked his first WSOP victory back in 2016, after taking down a $1,000 buy-in NLH event.

Nick Binger Captures Second Bracelet

As President and Lead Instructor of LearnWPT, Nick Binger has invested a lot of his time and attention in teaching his students how to be successful in poker by transforming complex poker concepts into lessons that are easily understood by the average player. While he’s been busy building the platform to become what it is now, Binger never really lost his passion for the game, and always finds time to compete at the tables.

With the pandemic forcing the closure of casinos and poker rooms, Binger took a shot at the WSOP Online Series, and everything’s going nice for him so far. During the US leg of the series, he won Event #24 for $133,412 in top prize alongside his second gold bracelet, after almost a decade of not winning one. His first bracelet came in 2011 when he captured the $5,000 buy-in PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better.

Final Table Finish for Andrew Lichtenberger

Lichtenberger has yet to win an online gold bracelet this year, but his results have been impressive so far. The 32-year-old finished third in the $1,000 buy-in Main Event, taking home $140,167.

He is aiming to ship his second gold after winning the first one in 2016, in the $3,000 buy-in NLH event. The New York native also has a WSOP Circuit title to his name, which he captured in Caesars Palace back in April 2010.
