Event #19: $1,500 NLHE Millionaire Maker

Huge performance of John Gorsuch who wins the million after falling to two big blinds at the final table. He finally managed to win the tournament for $1,344,930 and his first gold bracelet.

John Gorsuch remembering his last win in a tournament “I’ve not won an outright tournament since maybe 2013, a small bar-type tournament.”

Event #23: $1,500 8-Game Mix

Rami Boukai captured his second career World Series of Poker gold bracelet, closing out the heads-up battle against John Evans. Boukai, whose previous bracelet win came at the 2009 WSOP in the $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha/Hold’em event, said the money is the most important thing to him.

Rami Boukai happy to take home $177,294 “It’s $170K, so yeah, it’s a big deal. I’m here for the money.”

Event #25: $600 PLO DeepStack

With 2,577 players registered at the start of this event in Pot Limit Omaha, it was necessary to have the patience and know how to hold his four cards. This is obviously the case for the American Andrew Donabedian who won the bracelet and $205,605. This is the first bracelet of this PLO fan.

Andrew Donabedian taking back home more than 342 buy-ins for his performance.
