Event #77: $777 Lucky 7’s No-Limit Hold’em

Shawn Daniels is the lucky winner of event #77, taking home $777,777. He defeated the Frenchman Julien Montois in the heads-up, who won a cool $400,777 for the second place. It’s the first bracelet for the American, who has an impressive record of 14 top 10 finishes on the WSOP Circuit, including two rings, and now totals $2,6M in live earnings.

A happy moment, contrasting with recent hardships for Daniels: “I recently lost my fiancé so it’s been a tough summer,” he confessed. “I just wish she was here to celebrate it also. But it is what it is, it’s nice to get it done.”
