One Day, Three Bracelets: WSOP Paradise Bahamas Crowns Champions from Austria, Canada, Greece

WSOP Paradise updates

The WSOP Paradise is underway in the Bahamas and more and more lucky people are getting their dream gold bracelets in the events. On Friday, as many as three new champions appeared in tournaments number 3, 4 and 5, who received large prizes and well-deserved World Series bracelets.

The first bracelet of the day was up for grabs in the expensive Event #3: $25,000 GGMillion$ High Rollers Championship, which only featured a packed final table that had formed earlier. Its champion is Samuel Mullur from Austria. For his victory, he received as much as $2,726,300. It is worth noting that Mullur plays and trains in Fedor Holz's team, and before this victory he had only $100,000 in offline prize money in his account. American Frank Brannan (+$1,684,500) and German Daniel Smiljkovic (+$1,192,300) also won big prizes at the end of the tournament. They took the second and third places, respectively. The most famous participant in the final, the Spaniard Adrian Mateos, was satisfied with only the seventh place and has not yet taken the fifth bracelet. However, considering the fact that at a certain point in the game he was left with only one big blind, this is a worthy result.

The next precious trophy went to Canadian Martin Raus, who won Event #4: $1,000 Mini Main Event. This event drew a huge field of 2,234 entries, all with a fairly affordable entry fee (especially compared to high roller event number 3). On the final day, there were 23 players, and what is interesting is that the game went so fast that two hours after the start of the game, the final table was formed. In the heads up, Czech player Josef Snejberg tried to counter the eventual winner, but Martin Raus took advantage of his chip leader status to quickly wrap up the game and go celebrate with wine and friends. The winner received not only a gold bracelet but also $334,380 in prize money.

The final tourney of that day was Omaha's Event #5: $25,000 High Roller PLO. The event gathered 140 entries, and its future champion, the Greek Nikolaos Lampropoulos, has almost said goodbye to the tournament at the bubble stage. He lost a big pot and was left with a very short stack. But then he managed to win several all-ins in a row and get not only to the ITM, but also to the final table. And then to the heads-up, where he was opposed by none other than famous Dan Shak himself. In the end, the victory and $871,600 went to Lampropoulos, who was really honest in his interview:

"I don't care about the glory of the bracelet or something, I only care about the money and this was very important for me. It was the first $25,000 Event I have played."
