Event #48: Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better attracted a field of 991 players who created a prize pool of $1,337,850. The top 117 players each earned a payday and it was Tyler Patterson who nabbed the biggest slice of the cake - $270,992 - after three days of intensive play. Besides the prize money, Patterson received his first gold coveted bracelet!

Tyler Patterson had nearly $1.2 million in live tournament earnings, 18 WSOP cashes and three previous WSOP final tables before winning this tournament. It must have felt extra good for him to defeat 2-time bracelet winner Scott Clements heads-up for the title!

"Blind aggression and the cards falling my way really helped me out. I just started blasting right away because I had the chip lead," Patterson said in reference to playing against Clements heads-up. "I just kept the pressure on. It's not like Scott backed down. He just paid me off when I had it and he folded when I didn't. That might be luck, but it worked out."

"Winning the gold bracelet means so much. I'm really a glory hog," Patterson said in a post-tournament interview. "I honestly can't say it means more than the cash, because that's what we play for, but it really means a lot.I like the attention and recognition. I've been around for a while, playing cash and some tournaments. Now that I have a gold bracelet, that's big."

Final table results:

1st: Tyler Patterson - $270,992
2nd: Scott Clements - $167,686
3rd: Cody Crawford - $104,914
4th: Jeff Madsen - $76,150
5th: Gary Kosakowski - $56,216
6th: Tom Schneider - $42,142
7th: Derek Raymond - $32,054
8th: J.R. Flournoy - $24,710
9th: Dylan Wilkerson - $19,305

Cheers congratulations to Tyler it is so good to hear those winners in the mixed games, for me if you want a bracelet or even bracelets better go for the mixed games, less players to beat, if you work as hard as you don in poker and mixed games , you will get better result in mixed games due to field being less people. But anyway if you work hard enough all games should be profitable cheers guys have fun!
