It took him about nine hours and things got a little rocky at times, but Ensan closed the deal. He eliminated both Alex Livingston and then Dario Sammartino across a little under 200 hands of play, securing the historic bracelet for the 50th running of the WSOP, as well as $10 million. Ensan called the moment, the culmination of getting through a field of 8,569, “unbelievable”. “It is the best feeling I have in all my life”, Ensan said and we can all imagine why.
