Scott Blumstein Wins The 2017 WSOP Main Event!

The poker world crowned a new world champion this weekend, as USA's Scott Bluemstein took down the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event for $8,150,000 and the gold and diamond covered bracelet! It was the first time Blumstein played the Main Event. It was a memorable one to say the least, as he took the chip lead on Day 7 and led the final table almost from start to finish!

He faced fellow American Daniel Ott heads-up. Ott, who also was playing the Main Event for the first time, only had 10 to 15 big blinds for some time of the battle but eventually managed to double up to 64 million in chips with the big blind at 3 million. He could have doubled up again shortly after the first double up, but the poker gods weren't on his side of the table...

Hand #246: Scott Blumstein limped from the small blind and Dan Ott bet 8 million. Blumstein moved all in and Ott, after a minute of thinking, called with his remaining 55 million chips.

7Heart and Ott picked up a straight draw. The river was the 2Heart and Blumstein's rail started celebrating! Blumstein had hit the miracle card to secure the Main Event title, while Ott had been eliminated in second place for a $4,700,000 payday. 

An understandably emotional Blumstein struggled to get the words out when asked by WSOP reporters how it felt to be the champion of the 2017 Main Event. "I'm still in shock. I thought I would get even more emotional that what I got in real time but it's just the best feeling, I can't even put it into words."

"I'm really happy with how I played tonight," Blumstein continued. "I'm lucky enough to have good resources and hit up a buddy of mine who is really good at heads-up and three-handed poker. We went over what I should do and I was hoping to execute. I think tonight went really well."

Final table results: 
1 Scott Blumstein, United States, $8,150,000
2 Dan Ott, United States, $4,700,000
3 Benjamin Pollak, France, $3,500,000
4 John Hesp, United Kingdom, $2,600,000
5 Antoine Saout, France, $2,000,000
6 Bryan Piccioli, United States, $1,675,000
7 Damian Salas, Argentina, $1,425,000
8 Jack Sinclair, United Kingdom, $1,200,000
9 Ben Lamb, United States, $1,000,000

The truth is that Scott has played very well to win this tournament and the bracelet, in addition to connecting all the cards he proposed, he deployed a very solvent and aggressive game and if it accompanies him luck was almost unstoppable, a fair winner.

With his huge chip lead at the final table this was the most likely outcome. But even then, the tourney must still be won. So congratulations to Scott Blumstein for winning the tourney and the bracelet.

Yes towin $8 millions from buyin of 10,000 is very very big money and now he can easy stop working and enjoy life. I can only dream about what I could buy for so much money, maybe a few houses in very beautiful places, a yacht, change some cars and of course invest some money to keep it growing

Gratz to the new WSOP champion of the Year 2017! What a dream to win the bracelet from the main event and a cash prize over 8 million $$$. Perhaps we hear more about this player in the next future, but to win the main event at the first time was great for him.

Nothing to object to this fair winner of the maint event wsop 2017. Surprised I was left with the news that of the $ 8,000,000 I earn for the first place charges only about 4,000,000 for the discount corresponding to the current law in his country.-

fifty fifty receives the American tax from that money? This is inadmissible. The governors are thieves. Steal too much
 pajalnick26/07/2017 16:08:35 GMT
There was something about what I thought ... it was difficult to imagine that a person with such an advantage in chips can eventually give up the title ... I congratulate him and all his fans .... as well as the 888 poker he represents
 Tony_MON7ANA26/07/2017 17:33:36 GMT
I just watched the replays of the final table of the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event. Scott Blumstein audaciously firing three barrels with king-high against Dan Ott — that was probably the most memorable moment in this year's event.
