Yet another first bracelet moment for an aspiring poker player just happened at the 2018 WSOP Event #22 $1,500 Eight Game Mix. Philip Long outlasted a field of 481 players to win his first-ever live tournament title and of course, his first WSOP gold bracelet.

The 29-year-old poker pro managed to stay strong until the end amidst a tough final table that included the likes of 2017 $10,000 Dealer's Choice event champ John Racener and six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu, thus acquiring the first-place prize money worth $147,348.

The final two players were between Kevin Malis and Philip Long. In the Razz game, the final hands were: Milas: (6-3)J-7-Q-3(8); Long: (Q-2)A-6-5-3(2)

Long made a six-five low to claim the title and the pot, whereas Milas had to settle for second place in this event.

Long said that the comfort he felt in all games was the biggest factor that led to his victory, "It's an unusual thing when you have the eight-game mix. I think you're always trying to be aware of what people think about the different games and what they think about you in the different games. Sometimes, some people are really confident in some games and weak in the others, and sometimes they think you're bad at certain games. I didn't feel that bad in anything and I think that was my main strength."

Good to see such anlegend like daniel negreanu to make 3rd place finish, i think many players like to play with him. He is a funny man and like to comment situation at table. Innever played vs poker professional who is very good knownl in world

An interesting game the 8 mix, but not one with that many fans.
And the reason is obvious i believe.
Quite a few players in, almost 500, but the buy in was low so the prize money,
cant say it was something spectacular Smile

win an event of this and very spectacular because it is a very difficult tournament because it involves several variants of poker have to have a lot of skill and logical thinking to move from one game to another and keep the high performance parabens to the champion

It's great to see another first time winner at the World Series and well done to Philip Long on achieving this feat.I personally would have liked Daniel Negreanu to win but i am sure he will have other opportunities to add to his tally of wins

well I kinda am bullish on those mixed games, more fun, more emotions and of course more skill involved, luck always plays a factor, but the more skill games require the less impact luck makes and I am always in support of this scenario.

the mix game is a science apart because you have to have several different skills when it comes to poker because there are many games that differ from each other and the characteristics of them are different so win a world championship of this and a made for few

Philippe Long is for me a new name in the world of poker and his remarkable win is of course very cool .... if he could win such a good tournament then I think I will hear his name many times again in connection with new victories in new tournaments .... nice that there are new millionaires

The exciting idea of combining 8 games into a tournament. I've seen this for the first time a few years ago in pokerstars but i do not understand more games and these tournaments are not for everyone. I do not know how old is this combination of 8 games in a tournament but congratulations for all players who know how to play these games.

Big congratulations to Philip Long on his impressive victory in the Eight-Game Mix tournament. Congratulations also to Daniel Negreanu who had a third-place finish. I would love to watch the final table replay online.
