The first-ever edition of the 2018 WSOP $100,000 buy-in NLHE event that attracted a total of 105 players has been won by Nick Petrangelo, who acquired his second WSOP gold bracelet and the awesome first-place prize money of $2,910,227!

The 31-year-old poker pro from Massachusetts had won his first bracelet at the 2015 WSOP $3,000 NLHE Shootout event for $201,812. Currently, he has $14.5 million in live tournament winnings.

Petrangelo entered this event as he came off fresh from a 6th place finish in the $300K buy-in Super High Roller Bowl for $900,000. Somewhere along the way, he managed to make it through to the final day of this event in the chip lead, a favorable position that can bring on a distinct form of pressure on the player.

Petrangelo said after he won the event, "Sleeping on the chip lead is definitely a little more stressful. It's kind of like in a sports game. If you have the lead and there are a few minutes left, it's more stressful sometimes because you want everything to work out. There are expectations to deal with. I've tried to teach myself to just be happy to be here and just be excited to be playing. Luckily for me today, it was the easiest anything has ever gone. I coolered everybody and ran super hot. No complaints. The last two days were super easy for me. The last time I played any tough pots were around the middle stages of Day 2. I'm happy with my decision making, but ultimately, I just had sick cards and it worked out."

At the final table, Petrangelo went to a heads-up showdown and ultimately won against 2011 WSOP Europe champ Elio Fox, who had recently won the first bracelet event of the 2018 WSOP last week in Event #2 $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em for $393,693.

well seeing the paytable once again I can only say that it pays to play for the 1st place, better take more risks and be more aggressive but try to collect more money, than settle for top 9 finish and get 1/10th of the amount of 1st place for the 9th place finish

For that buy in, you have to chase top places indeed.
But even finishing in the money, is giving you more than twice your buy in,
which is a very high one.
When you are in this final table, you need to decide. Going place by place,
or playing it all for the first one.

These tournaments are very hard to win. It is not easy to get to the final table of a total of 105 professionals players. If you are not a very good player, it's not worth paying that much entry in this game. If you are a multi millionaire yes but like a average player not. Only when i think what value is 100 k dollars for most people on this earth i can say that: I can have a lot of fun with this amount of money or i can invest it in a business.

what to talk about this tournament is the entrance of it is already absurd because many who won a tournament wsop will not reach the price of entry of this because 100k and only mega millionaires kkkk that bullet and that prize more than 2M OF GAIN THAT TA RINDO ATOA

Just reading the words '$100,000 buy-in' sends shivers down my back. I cannot imagine what it would be like to shell out this kind of money just to have a game of cards!!!
 Mober08/06/2018 08:00:15 GMT
You need to have lots of money, being comfortable to buy for this amount.
I wouldnt feel right, even if someone else was paying that,
not to mention that probably i would never accept playing, even if someone else was buying.

Those big buy in are so tough and very stressful when close to the bubble time even if you are millionaires, congrats Nick your WSOP is now a success and anything u will win as from now in other events would just be bonuses.
