Two more players felt the taste of victory in the biggest poker series for the first time.
The first long-awaited bracelet was given to the experienced American pro Chris Klodnicki. Despite years of successful performances, regular games at final tables in WSOP tournaments and $9 million in prize money for a career, until today, Chris did not have any major series title, except for one WSOP Circuit ring.
Klodnicki won the victory in the Event #66: $1,500 NLHE. Apart from him, Darren Elias (6th place, $77,047), Kenny Hallaert (7th place, $58,083) and the best player of the last season of the WPT Ben Zamani (4th place, $ 139,896), distinguished themselves at the final table. In the final heads-up, which lasted so long that it had to be deferred to the next day, Klodnicki met with the representative of Jamaica, Emile Schiff. Emile had a slight advantage, but could not resist the onslaught of Klodnicki and finished second, though, having received the largest payoff in the career ($264,692). Klodnicki, who eventually left 1,955 opponents behind, increased his bankroll by $428,423.
An IT manager from Chicago Jason Gola appeared to be the second lucky guy. Jason, who until today could boast of $40,000 in prize money on his account, won Event #69: $1,500 Razz. Not only the bracelet, but also the final table will remain in the memory of the amateur player for a long time. There he met Phil Hellmuth (6th place, $19,865) and Ben Glazer (5th place, $27,503). In the final heads-up, Jason beat experienced David Baker and put $132,957 into his pocket. Baker received $82,174. For him this payment was the tenth at the WSOP 2017.
