Anthony Zinno, the reigning World Poker Tour Player of the Year, is the winner of the $25,000 High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha event. In total, Zinno had to overcome a star-studded field of 175 players in three days of play to take home his first coveted gold bracelet!

In addition to the prestigious bracelet, he received a massive $1,122,196 first-place prize from the total prize pool of $4,156,250! It was his 12th cash at the World Series and his 5th final table appearance. He now has close to 2 million dollars in earnings at the WSOP.

"I have to say - winning the LAPC (Los Angeles Poker Classic) back to back was such a shock. That gave me three WPT titles," Zinno said. "But this is my first gold bracelet which is something you never forget. So, they are equal in different ways."

Has been coming out to Las Vegas for the WSOP since 2008...

"I've been coming to the WSOP for 8 years, so this is something I really wanted longer," Zinno said. "This is certainly my best day as a poker pro, and it was made even better by winning it in a game I love which is PLO and also against a very skilled final table, which is something where I can take extra pride in that."

Final table results:


Aside from the final table finishers, other gold bracelet winning players who cashed included - David Chiu (13th), Mike Gorodinsky (17th), and Kory Kilpatrick 22nd).

Anthony Zinno,the lawyer-turned-poker pro from Boston,dominated much of the three-day tournament and was an unstoppable force at the final table.Despite formidable opponents, Zinno was never seriously threatened during the final several hours of the tourney and managed to win by making things look far too easy.

Many congratulations to Anthony Zinno on winning his first bracelet and over a million dollars in prize money. This tournament attracted all the top names so extra kudos for winning it goes to him

This final table was packed with nationalities from all around the world, nice change from the usual homogenic WSOP finishes where the americans blow everybody out of the water. PLO must be friggin huge in Scandinavia by the looks of it.

A great win for a player who has been trying to win one for a long time and the million dollars plus is brilliant.Definitely deserves it,3 days of playing Omaha against top players would be a nightmare for me!!

Three days playing Omaha against really $hitty players would be just as soulcrushing tbh. But the potential money in both cases would definitely cheer me up!

He is a former lawyer turned poker pro? Looks rather like a gangster in my opinion. Big Smile
He played perfectly and that 1 000 000 dollars prize has to be very satisfying.

Yeah, he is very keen on this wiseguy look - to be honest the amount of money he gathered since he started to play professionally should be enough for some decent wardrobe adjustments but I guess there is really no account for taste. At least it's not a hawaiian shirt.
