John Kabbaj Wins Event #25: Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better

Tags: 2014 WSOP, Erik Seidel, John Kabbaj, Omaha-Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better, Tom Schneider.
Posted on 13 June 2014 by "T".

This event saw 470 runners who battled it out for 3 days and 28 levels of play until a winner had been crowned. After defeating Thomas "Thunder" Keller heads up, John Kabbaj was awarded his second gold bracelet and $267,327 in prize money!

Kabbaj won his first bracelet in 2009 in the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em Championship. The win of Event #25 yesterday marked his 16th WSOP and he now has $1.5 million in live tournament earnings! However, it seems like the $267k in prize money will come in handy...

"I have had probably the worst two years of my life," said Kabbaj. "I lost everything I had and had to rebuild. I have started a new life in the last six months and now this is looking good for the future"

Final table results:
1st: John Kabbaj - $267,327
2nd: Thomas Keller - $165,177
3rd: Christopher McHugh - $75,713
4th: Terrence Hastoo - $55,451
5th: Joe Tehan - $41,230
6th: Erik Seidel - $31,115
7th: Mike Leah - $23,833
8th: Tom Schneider - $18,519

It is not nice to hear, that he had some problems recently.

Hopefully the win will make it little bit better.
