Ole Schemion wins his first bracelet in WSOP Hall Of Fame Bounty
Las Vegas is currently hosting the last WSOP 2021 tournaments, and so poker players still have time to "catch the last ride" and win their first gold bracelets.
Luck also smiled on the popular German poker superstar Ole Schemion who became the WSOP 2021 Event # 79: $1 979 Hall Of Fame Bounty champion.
The event recorded 469 entries and, as a result, the final prize pool reached the mark of $826 050.
Despite the fact that Schemion has made over 16.5 million in live tournament earnings, this victory fetched him his first career WSOP bracelet.
"It’s not too often in live tournaments that you come in first place. It’s what we all try to do but it feels very good to run through a good field and win one," said Ole Schemion.
The second place was taken by Benjamin Underwood, a poker player from Canada. His payout accounted for $106 610. Overall, 71 players were lucky to get in the money, with the minimum cash reward of $3 080.
