Despite winning millions of dollars in several big live tournaments in the past seven years, Byron Kaverman didn't have a WSOP bracelet to his name until winning the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship this weekend. Kaverman defeated short-handed specialist Doug Polk heads-up to claim his first bracelet and $657,351.

"It was absolutely thrilling to win. This is one I was really motivated for," Kaverman said afterward in a post-tournament interview. "It definitely has one of the toughest lineups there is....I would rank this final table as definitely the toughest."

It was indeed a tough field of players that Kaverman had to overcome to became the champion, including three bracelet winners on the final table: Doug Polk, Paul Volpe and Sam Greenwood. In total, the tournament attracted 259 entries - of which 30 players received a slice of the $ $2,434,600 prize pool.


Aside from the final table finishers, other gold bracelet winning players and notables who cashed in the top 20 included - 10th -- Chris Klodnicki (runner up in One Drop event two years ago); 11th -- Kevin Song (1997 gold bracelet winner); 12th -- two-time gold bracelet winner Mark Radoja; 12th -- Sam Stein (1 win); and 14th -- Kory Kilpatrick (1 win).

Many congratulations to Byron Kaverman on winning this event and the first place prize money of $657,351. I am surprised that this is his first bracelet because this guy has been a top player over the last few years

Well done on his first bracelat,he has been around for quite a while and won many tournaments and lots of money but never had many good results at the WSOP so he probably deserves a bracelet.

Deserves a bracelet or not he's only twenty-nine. He's got all the time to make something out of his poker carrier - which based on his earnings already happened so congrats to him I guess. This win probably looks good on his tracksheet.
