Event #24 $2,620 The Marathon No-Limit Hold’em of the 2018 WSOP has been won by Australian Michael Addamo, who now can join the roster of first-time WSOP bracelet winners. The five-day poker grind featured players starting the event with 26,200 in chips and competing with 100-minute levels. Just a bit down from last year’s 1,759 player field, the 1,637 entries created a prize pool of $3.8 million.

The event ended with 23-year-old Aussie poker pro Michael Addamo as the top winner, thereby obtaining his very first gold bracelet and a nice $653,581 cash prize to go along with it.

Addamo said after his win, “It hasn’t quite hit. I’m sure when I wake up tomorrow it’ll hit me. I got lucky in some spots and got some chips.”

Right after the online poker ban was implemented in Australia, Addamo has since relocated to Thailand. Right now he has over $1.9 million in live tournament winnings. He won an event back in 2017 at the PokerStars Championship Macau with Nick Petrangelo for $197, 971 (his previous best score).

well this is an interesting slow twist to nl holdem, especially compared to the very fast tournaments structure promoted by online poker rooms. I personally would enjoy structure, more room to wait for sur spots to put your chips on the line.

This one had a variety of players, from different countries.
Not that many winners from usa this time.
A nice win for someone playing poker a this age.
His first bracelet also, so he must be super happy with the result.

Many congratulations to Michael Addamo on winning this event. This must have been a real war of attrition and to keep your concentration levels up for so long is very admirable indeed

of course with so many players this victory is very valuable ... Of course I think that during the tournament he was lucky several times but still it's very cool .... especially the first bracelet in such a battle is also very cool .... my congratulations to the winner .... maybe he will prove himself

Pochui, Turbo tournaments promoted by online poker rooms are made to bring more money into their accounts. The more games you play, the more their commissions are. I like blinds with 8, 10, 12 minutes but with 2, 3, 4 or 5 minutes only in freeroll tournaments. This player who won 1st place in this tournament is only 23 years old. He is young but ambitious and a good player. Congratulations for Michael Addamo and for this result.

Absolutely massive congratulations must go out to Michael Addamo for being crowned champion of the $2,620 No-Limit Hold’em. Very well done to Martin Jacobson, the 2014 WSOP main event champion, for his fifth place finish. Cate Hall... Isn't she lovely?
