As mentioned before, there's never a shortage of first-time WSOP bracelet winners every time at the prestigious poker festival held annually every summer. On Monday, another first-timer WSOP bracelet winner is born, and it was Yueqi Zhu who took down Event #35 $1,500 Mixed Omaha after defeating a player field of 773 to win the title and the first place prize money worth $211,781.

The 55-year-old engineer, born in China but is now based in Rowland Heights, California, has finally won his very first WSOP gold bracelet and is also savoring his top prize of over $200k.

Zhu has been participating in the WSOP for almost 20 years, cashing in 72 WSOP events so far.

Zhu said after he won, "I think I'm holding the unofficial record of the most top-three finishes without a bracelet. I know a lot of things can happen and I feel bad that a turn of the card can totally change the result, so I'm happy that it went my way today and I didn't have to extend that record."

This was his 7th cash but his very first final table finish in 2018.

Zhu entered the final table in 5th place in chips, with 8 players left. The only player who has previously won a bracelet at the final table was Carol Fuchs, who won the 2015 WSOP $1,500 Dealer's Choice Event.

The final hand saw Gabriel Ramos battling it out with Yueqi Zhu.

Another first time winner at the series and many congratulations to Yueqi Zhu on winning. I have never heard of a mixed Omaha tournament before and you have to be at the very top of the game to win one of these

mixed tournament in Omaha pretty well-known discipline in the poker game ... I played a few freerolls when they were still at pokerstars in this game .... quite interesting .... the main thing is to properly concentrate and not miss the change of the game ..... 55 years and winning tournament .... cool

yes it is very cool, but this man has been very focused a long time to winning a bracelet. 20 years is two much but he eventually managed to do so. Some people are very insistent but eventually succeed and others they will not succeed all their lives to win a bracelet. I congratulate him for this succes.
