Event #91: $3,000 H.O.R.S.E.
Two bracelets in a year for Ryan Miller! After winning Event #63: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship three weeks ago, Miller gets a second bracelet and $208,460. Leonard August lost in second place and will still get a nice $128,835.
“I came in today feeling pretty good, but right away he evened it up, so at that point, I thought that anything could happen. The limits are high, so if anyone wins three or four hands in a row it’s gonna swing their way. But then the next round or two went my way and I finished it.”, Miller told in the post-win interview.

Event #93: $10,000 Short Deck No-Limit Hold’em
Five returned to end the tournament yesterday, and starting chip leader Martin Nielsen from Denmark made the chips talk to put his hands on the bracelet. John Juanda did not succeed in raising the stack that would give him a chance to win a sixth bracelet, thus finishing 5th.
“It’s so weird, though, I thought I would be nervous,” Nielsen said after his victory, “I don’t know, I am a full-time short-deck cash player, but I mostly play online.”
Event #94: $5,000 8-Handed No-Limit Hold’em
Alex Keating is the winner of the penultimate event of the year and grabbed the $701,688 top prize. Keating improves his previous best live performance of getting 3rd for $423,890 in 2016’s $9,600 + 400 No Limit Hold’em WPT Championship. Keating crosses the $3M mark in total live earnings with this victory.

Event #95: $1,000 Super Turbo No-Limit Hold’em
When Paul Berger came to casino yesterday morning, he didn’t came to play but to close out the remaining money in his account. When he noticed this super turbo event was happening, he decided to jump in.
Only twelve hours of play were needed to go from 1,482 entries to one winner with the unexpected Paul Berger taking out this very last event of the year for $212,645. A huge performance for the Las Vegas local who denied Yuri Dzivielevski a second bracelet this year by beating him in the heads-up. Still a great year for the brazilian who’ll end with 12 cashes, 4 final tables and one bracelet.
|🇺🇸 Ari Engel||89th||$8,815|

|🇨🇦 Daniel Negreanu||80th||$2,838|
