On July 5, Wednesday was definitely a great day for Sebastian Langrock, who was the last man standing on 2017 WSOP's Event #64: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Mix tournament, a 3-day event which started July 3, Monday at 3pm.

The event attracted a player field of 1,056 participants and created a prize pool of $1,428,300. Sebastian Langrock, from Austria, stayed steadfast and won the biggest amount so far in his poker career that night. Although, it actually doesn't come too close to the most money he's ever made in one night.

In the 2013 German version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, he won $1 million prize. With that money he won from the show, he used that as bankroll to become a professional poker player, which proved to be a smart move for him, given what he's won at this WSOP event.
Langrock bagged his very first WSOP gold bracelet and a top prize of over a quarter million cash, worth $268,555. His previous best score was back in 2014, when he finished third place for $57,318 in a WPT Prague preliminary event.

He admitted, "I was planning on going home like a week ago. I was here for three weeks but then I was like, I'm not that Vegas-tired, like I was the years before after three weeks. So I decided spontaneously to extend my stay, and that worked out pretty f***ing well."

The German beat bracelet-winner Ryan Laplante for the title at a heads-up match, denying Laplante his attempt at a second bracelet.

1. Sebastian Langrock Austria $268,555
2. Ryan Laplante United States $165,983
3.Victor Choupeaux France $118,190
4. Esther Taylor United States $85,225
5. Shannon Shorr United States $62,242
6. Zahir Gilani Canada $46,048
7. Jerry Callahan United States $34,515
8. Fernando Brito Brazil $26,216
9. Jagdeep Singh India $20,181

I think this is good combination of games of mo limit holdem and pot limit omaha, I played some small cash games on pokerstars with only $0.01/$0.02 stakes. At first some practice with play money then cash, fun game but to me not a lot of luck.

Most of the pictures from the winners i have seen, its them showing the bracelet.
Is this what they are playing for, or the money?
Show us the money Smile This is what everyone is after for.

Sebastian's great achievement in this event with a rather complicated multiple modality. You really have to have great conviction and concentration in this modality to be able to carry out a good game and in case you take the title, as it finally did. Congratulations!

Many congratulations to Sebastian Langrock on winning his first bracelet. His back story is fascinating, with him winning a million dollars on a game show, and he must be a lucky man

yeah kinda interesting story about how he acquired sources for his bankroll and then moved on to becoming a poker pro. surely now after this win it does look like a good carer planning, but i doubt that such career is for everyone and his dog.

I never heard about this player, but gratz to him for his nice winning! Over 1000 players and a prize pool over 1.3 millions are amazing and over the top he got a bracelet, verry nice for him. And that he have won 1 million in a gameshow was also amazing- what a luky guy!
