2017 WSOP: Andres Korn wins $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

It seems like for the many winning players who participated so far, this year's WSOP has become their groundbreaking year for nabbing their first ever gold bracelet, and Argentinian Andres Korn joins the list of WSOP's gold bracelet winners.

Andres Korn, age 47 from Buenos Aires, Argentina, managed to become the last man standing in a field of 623 players in Event #56 of the 2017, $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em, and not only did he win his first ever WSOP gold bracelet, he also gets the top prize money worth $618,285!

Korn was actually the second Argentinian poker player to ever win a bracelet, subsequent to Ivan Luca who won a WSOP tournament event in 2015.

Korn said, "This was beautiful. I connected with every flop. I won every flip - the cards just kept coming my way. It was my way."

The summer has been the stage for final tables brimming with previous bracelet winners, but this particular event's final table was dominated by nine players without WSOP titles under their belts. The most-accomplished poker player at the final table was Mike Sowers who had over $3 million in live tournament earnings before this event.

Sowers only made it to top 5 after he was bulldozed by Korn at the final table. Shortly after that, Korn sent Hungarian poker pro Czuczor to settle with fourth place and took a significant lead into the three-handed action.
Korn beat Thomas Boivin who got third place and almost had a 5-to-2 chip lead over Taiwanese Pete Chen.
By the time it reached the final hand, Chen had only about 10 big blinds. Korn went all-in with the 89 and Chen called with the K9.

The board displayed 9x8x5x6x6x, which made Korn the victor of this event, awarding him his first ever WSOP gold bracelet and a sweet $618,285 cash prize!

No names i know or hear sometime at the final table, like the winner said he connected with every flop and won every clip, if this is the situation then it is not hard to win any tournament you play i just want to have such situation with me i always lose one or more flips when i need the win

Andres Korn 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

Gratz for this poker player from Argentinia for his first bracelet winning at the WSOP! Nice to see, that some new players win big cashes and bracelets an it was good for the poker scene to see some new young players with a other gaming style.

Less competition here, but the money was like double from the 1.5k buy in.
Someone would expect more Smile
Beating 600+ players not an easy task to get home 600k.
At least a year;s expenses are done with that win Smile

Many congratulations to Andres Korn on winning his first bracelet and the first prize of $618,285. I think he summed it up what it takes to win one of these, he hit every flop and won every flip

Great impact caused in Argentina this sensaconal achievement, Really historical since it is the second bracelet that Argentina gets, the previous had obtained another brilliant player as it is Ivan Lucà.-
