The prizes keep flowing at WSOP 2019 with two more winners being crowned in the last few days. One of them was Event #68 which had quite a few known names reaching the money in a session which lasted for 11+ hours online. This was also one of the last of 9 scheduled online bracelet tournaments of 2019. India's Shravan Chhabria finished 153rd in this tournament for $2,494.

Coming out on top of the field of 1,750 entries for a whopping grand prize of $303,738 was Utica, New York native, Nicholas 'Illari' Baris. The FT was dominated by USA players and Baris beat Tara Cain in heads-up, the latter also currently among the final 500 players in the Main Event. Multiple bracelet winners Chris Ferguson and David Baker were also on the FT of the event.

Event #69: $1,000 Mini Main Event

As the name suggests, this was a smaller, condensed version of the mega Main Event which began soon after this tournament concluded. With a smaller buy-in, a massive field of 5,521 unique players joined in and eventually, it was Frenchman Jeremy Saderne who topped the field, bagging a massive pay-check of $628,654.

It was a good sight to see as players of 7 different nationalities competed on the Final Table of 8 players and eventually, Baris won all glory along with bragging rights. The 27-year old won the top cash of his career to go with his maiden WSOP bracelet and the second for France in WSOP 2019.

“I feel very good, I cannot imagine winning a tournament with more than five thousand people, especially in this one when the tournament is very fast. You have to have good cards or a good setup and I just ran so good and had two times aces in the last hands,” said Saderne, who earned his 6th cash of the series.

Final Table Results:

  1. Jeremy Saderne - $628,654
  2. Lula Taylor - $388,284
  3. Andres Korn - $287,219
  4. Yi Ma - $214,047
  5. Koji Takagi - $160,715
  6. Stefan Widmer - $121,586
  7. Philip Gildea - $92,686
  8. Ben Alloggio - $71,199
  9. James Stewart - $55,188
