Event #23: $50,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em

22 years old German Leon Sturm is the winner of the high roller event for the second biggest prize this year of $1,546,024. A battle of generation as he defeated Bill Klein, 75, a regular of the high stakes scene.

Bill Klein really went for it and pulled great moves like this hand at 3-left:

“It does feel amazing,” Sturm told after winning. “The bracelet is something special; it means more than just a trophy, I guess. Before, I was thinking that trophies and bracelets don’t mean much to me. But I think a bracelet is special, so that’s pretty cool. The competition was really tough, so that makes it better.”

The German is more of an online player and currently crushing on all sides, he just won last week the $10,000 buy-in GGPoker Super MILLION$ event for another $1,5M!

Event #24: $1,500 Razz

David “ODB” Baker started the day in 14th place, and climbed the ranks to finally grab the Razz trophy, winning $152,991 in the process. He’s now at three bracelets and 120 cashes, cementing his impressive record at the WSOP.

He overcame another bracelet winner in the heads-up in the name of Justin Liberto ($94k). Jeff Lisandro ended in 5th place, Dzmitry Urbanovich in 8th.
