Argentinian Poker Pro Damian Salas Wins WSOP Main Event 2020

by Manthra Koliyer Posted on 05 Jan, 2021

Damian Salas won the World Series Of Poker Main Event 2020. Previously, he won the international leg of the hybrid version of the WSOP 2020. Among the 674 entries, this Argentinian player made his way to the top, defeating Joseph Herbert and won the WSOP Main Event of the hybrid version.

Everyone celebrated the victory of poker pro Damian Salas. This 45-year-old pro took home $2.5 million in prize money and the most coveted WSOP championship gold bracelet. The last time Damian won the international leg of the hybrid version, he was beaming with pride and kept waving the flag of Argentina. He is the first poker player from the country to have become a poker world champion and to take home the WSOP bracelet.

Salas played the WSOP Main Events in three places, as the early stages of the Main Event were online, and he played those from Argentina. Post that, Salas traveled to Rozvadov, Czech Republic to play the international live final table. Salas then went to Las Vegas to play the heads-up finale. Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, all live poker tournaments were played in the online format.

After the victory, Salas mentioned in an interview, “I do not play for the money. I play for the love of poker and the challenge it gives us.” He further added that he was very proud to have earned such a prestigious title and for achieving this impressive feat.

In the final stage, Salas and Herbert both began with 500 big blinds. In the final hand during the game, Joseph Herbert had an ace-queen and went all-in with it. While Salas had King-Jack, he hit the king on the flop and one more card on the river, eventually triumphing through it all.
