2018 WSOP: Event #28: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed won by Gal Yifrach for $461,798

Gal Yifrach, born in Israel and now living in Los Angeles as an entrepreneur, has defeated an entry field of 868 players to secure his very first WSOP bracelet and a nice sum of $461,798 at the 2018 WSOP Event #28: $3,000 Six-Max No-Limit Hold’em event.

This is the biggest score to date for the 31-year-old entrepreneur, whose biggest previous cash came from a win in the 2017 WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino $3,250 buy-in NLHE event for $90K.

Yifrach said after he won, “I’m feeling pretty good. I’m feeling great. You know, coming into this event, I didn’t expect, obviously, to win. Everybody has hopes. Everybody is hoping to get very far. I was fortunate enough to get there…But you know, when you run good, you play good as well. It comes hand-in-hand.”

Yifrach entered the final table of this event in the second chip lead, behind the only WSOP bracelet winner James Mackey.

The event was scheduled to have a winner in 3 days, however, the decision was made on day 3 that the remaining 3 players should call it a night. Yifrach had 6,965,000, Mackey had 3,100,000, and Hasson had 1,960,000.

In the end, Gal Yifrach bested his other two opponents to emerge as the top winner of this event.

Yifrach considers poker more like a hobby than a profession, but nevertheless he has a very solid poker portfolio. He already has 8 WSOP and 5 circuit cashes to his name, but he sure is appreciative of winning his very first WSOP gold bracelet. He said, “You don’t make a final table every tournament. I was fortunate enough and am happy my family and girlfriend came to support me. I’m very happy.”

well that's quite an improvement on your previous highest ever cash of 90k if your new high score is almost half a million. I bet he had a day to remember and who knows maybe it's just the beginning of his poker career when we talk about huge paydays

An improvement indeed. Winning half a million in a poker game is great.
He is an entrepreneur according to the article, so the prize can help a lot.
But something tells me that a big portion of it will be for poker play only Smile

Yet another first time winner at the series and it's always nice to see. I can only imagine the sheer thrill of playing in one of these tournaments, let alone winning the whole thing

after the win in one tournament is more than five times higher than all previous poker achievements, you can fall into euphoria .... and try to achieve something more with the existing win ... in this situation, the main endurance and patience .... were different cases of flights and falls

This is a very good win because the entry was 3 k and Gal Yifrach won 153 times more than this buy in. Poker is a hobby but it can become more if you earn something seriously. No one is willing to spend money and lose them. We all want profit but not all of us do that. Because of this we are still trying to make more money. Smile
