Jens Lakemeier has emerged victorious in the $2,500 Big Bet Mixed tournament of WSOP 2017 after besting a field of poker players totaling up to 179 entrants. Not only did he take home the event's title, but also he has claimed his first ever gold bracelet along with a guaranteed prize pool cash worth $112,232.

The 23-year-old German poker pro's victory is just one more proof that German poker players are a force to reckon with when it comes to prestigious international poker tournaments.

Lakemeier's latest achievement helped boost his overall live earnings to $875,593. His best live cash won so far was $132,097 back in July 2016, after he placed second in the €2,700 NLHE - Poker EM Velden. However, his most recent win in the $2,500 Big Bet Mixed event is now his best cash in his WSOP career and also his second final table. His first WSOP final table was on the 2015 WSOP Europe $2,200 8-Game event.

Even though Lakemeier is only 23, his prowess in playing different types of poker games is astounding. The German national has managed to beat all of his opponents in various No-Limit Hold'em, Omaha Hi-Lo, 8-game, H.O.R.S.E, Dealers Choice, and mixed events.

A total of only six players returned for the final table of the event. In just a span of no more than 20 hands, Lakemeier managed to beat down his opponents and grab his first ever WSOP gold bracelet.

He started the final day as the chip leader, and even if he immediately lost his footing at some point in the event, as soon as he got back on track, he upped his play aggressively, which enabled him to take down his final four opponents.

Final Table Results:

1st: Jens Lakemeier - $112,232
2nd: Jason Stockfish - $69,359
3rd: Andrew Kelsall - $47,239
4th: Jerry Wong - $32,804
5th: Ashton Griffin - $23,235
6th: Kenneth Fitzgerald - $16,793

Huge congratulations go to Jens Lakemeier from Germany who won the $2,500 Big Bet Mixed event in Las Vegas. German players are a force to reckon with, indeed. When you look at the results of the major tournaments (both live and online), you will almost always notice a German player at the top of the payouts or near the summit.

Never heard of Big Bet Mixed too, but gratz to this young poker pro for his first bracelet winning at the WSOP! The first time winning was unforgetable and a cash winning over 112k gives his bankroll a nice push i think.

Jens Lakemeyer is certainly a good player and of course he invested quite a lot of money he needed to play either right or wrong ... he played correctly and eventually won good money ... I certainly congratulate him on this victory and I want to be in his place
