With Artur Rudziankov's triumph at the 2017 WSOP Event #58 of $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, he now became the second Czech national to have ever won the coveted WSOP gold bracelet.

The event garnered a significantly huge field of 1,763 entrants, which has created a massive total prize pool of $2,380,050. Truth is, the number of participating players was so large this time that it called for an unscheduled fourth day of action in order to determine the last man standing.

July 3, Monday was a momentous event for Artur, age 29 from Prague, Czechoslovakia. Back in 2015, he only finished runner-up in one of WSOP's $1,000 no-limit hold'em event. Now, aside from the sweet grand prize of $395,918, he had also won his first WSOP gold bracelet in this event.

He said after he won, "I had more confidence this time around, and of course I got lucky a couple of times."
Tom Junek was the first Czech national to have won a WSOP gold bracelet, in a $1,500 no-limit hold'em event held in WSOP 2012.

Final table results (Name, Country, Prize):

1 Artur Rudziankov Czech Republic $395,918
2 Mario Prats Spain $244,611
3 Timothy Miles United States $176,455
4 Arman Zolnoorian United States $128,645
5 Christian Rudolph Germany $94,799
6 Lee Watkinson United States $70,618
7 John Esposito United States $53,184
8 Martin Kabrhel Czech Republic $40,500
9 Scott Lychwick United States $31,187

Thats really a massive prize pool with over $2.3 millions and gratz to the winner! Over 1.700 entrants was a lot and it was really not easy to win this big tourney. But to win the first bracelet must be a greyt feeling for every poker player, money comes and go´s, but the bracelet are forever Blink

Players of course it was very much and to become a winner is very very very difficult ... therefore this bracelet seems to me more honest than when a bracelet is played by not many players ..... I join the congratulations
