2018 WSOP: Event #20: Big Blind Antes $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em won by Jeremy Wien for $537,710

Outlasting a player field of 518, derivatives trader Jeremy Wien has taken the top prize money worth $537,710 and his very first gold bracelet in this year's WSOP Event #20: Big Blind Antes $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em event.

It was mostly Laka who was in the chip lead throughout the final day of play, sending other fellow final tablists David Peters, Shawn Buchanan, Jake Schindler, and Eric Blair to the rail.

Right into heads-up play, Laka had a 4-to-1 chip advantage. Wien managed to hold on, eventually taking the lead after he won an all-in with his A-9 against Laka's 10-10. The final two players battled for more than 3 hours, and when the final hand was in motion their stacks were fairly even. In the end, Laka had pair Queen versus Wien's pair Ace. The board ran out J-8-2-3-6, thus making Wien the ultimate winner for this event.

The part-time poker player from Mt. Kisco, New York said after he won, "It's pretty surreal. It's not what I do for a living, but I come out here for a few tournaments every summer, sometimes as many as 15 or so. You know, I got close to a final table once a few years ago, I've had a few cashes, but other than that, nothing crazy. I never actually expected it to happen, even though I've dreamed about it. I've given my bracelet ceremony speech a few times in my head."

Nice cash for half a million from a single tournament Smile
And once more we can see americans dominating the paid poistions,
with only two others not being from usa.
For a country with not that many online options for poker, they are still doing great Smile

great great, except that it is totally not great to finish say in 10th place and get 27k of dollaros for you efforts and see some dude finish just 9 places higher than you and collect more than half of million, knowing that you both outlasted more than 500 players.

This derivatives trader Jeremy Wien has done great in this tournament. I think he is a good mathematician if he managed to win and to beat 518 players at a tournament with 5000 dollars entry. More than that he also earns an good amount of money. Congratulations to Jeremy Wien for winning these wonderful prizes.
