On Wednesday, Art Papazyan emerged as the champion in the World Poker Tour Maryland Live! Main Event for $389,405 thanks to defeating a field of 561 players!

This is Papazyan's second WPT Main Event title in just over 1 month, after defeating 14-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth heads-up in the WPT Legend of Poker Main Event in August.

In total, 26 players have won more than one WPT title to date and only 8 of them have won multiple titles in the same season. Besides from Papazyan, the other 7 players are Gus Hansen (Season I), Howard Lederer (Season I), Erick Lindgren (Season II), Tuan Le (Season III), Darren Elias (Season XIII), Anthony Zinno (Season XIII), and Sam Panzica (Season XV).

"I feel like this is not even real,"Papazyan told after the win. "Who would have thought I play my first WPT and I win against Phil Hellmuth? Then I play my second WPT, I come to Maryland across the country, and I win again? I would never have thought in my wildest dreams that this would ever happen. I'm so happy it did."

I think this man is at the height of happiness. As he says in the article. To win in a short time two events World Poker Tour is a dream for many professionals players. This proves once again that this poker game is more science-based than on luck. Congratulations for this player with the beautiful performance.

yeah kinda script written for a Hollywoodod movie, playing in your first wpt and ending up the winner and against a poker world superstar, then after a few weeks playing second tournament and winning it again, jeez sometimes luck comes at the right moments.

Yes I too think that to have such good results lije this guy is super good luck. I think to ein one live poker tournament with 500 players is really hard and you need a lot of luck but to ein tep tournaments like this and in just more than one month time is super good result

Kinda, but not really. Based on my recent moviegoing experiences in today's hollywood no movie is getting greenlit unless they have enough superheroes, robots, singing princesses or Ryan Gosling written into the script. This story above had neither.
