Being able to outlast a field of 901 entries is an achievement done by Ronald Keijzer, who won his very first bracelet and he takes home with him a plump $475,033 payday in Event #69 $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed.

Keijzer, a 26-year-old poker pro from Amsterdam, is the fifth Dutch player in WSOP history to win a gold bracelet. The cash player regular was able to overcome a difficult final table that included the likes of Scott Bohlman who settled in 3rd place, and French poker pro Romain Lewis, who he went heads-up with to win the event.

Keijzer said, "I'm very happy. I love PLO tournaments and I came to Vegas especially for that. It was really fast. I joined the table with 1.8 million and in 20 minutes I had 4 million... I think my position on the table was just very good with my stack, the other stacks and a lot of ICM pressure."

He plays cash games online usually at home, so a live tournament is a rare thing for him, and in this event, it would definitely be a memorable one for him now that he won the whole thing.

Even though he had the chip lead early in three-handed play, Scott Bohlman finished in 3rd place when he got his stack in preflop with Aces against Romain Lewis' suited Ace and a pair of Jacks, making a flush and taking the pot.

The heads-up match was rather brief - it was a straight-vs-straight battle that ended it once and for all:

Many congratulations to Ronald Kejizer on winning his first bracelet and the first prize of $475,033. It is not often you see Dutch players winning these and he is only the 5th one to do so

Nice result by our Dutch friend. Omaha is such an interesting game and yet I don’t get time to play it as often as I would like to. It’s nice to see swop persevering with Omaha and giving Omaha players the chance to play a the big one and get media recognition for their achievements. Long may Omaha last and good luck to everyone’s at the rest of wsop

This Dutch player's success is a nice one. He is more online poker player and now manages to win a bracelet in a live tournament which is very rare for him to play live. Omaha is a nice game for many professionals players and this pot limit it is an advantage because do not lose the stack once.

Yes very good results and money to win, almost half of millions of dollars is money to change life. Of course if you not spend it ppaying casino and lose all. 901 players to beat is very hard, omaha pot limit is game where luck is very important

well I have to admit that to scoop almost half a million of dollars for a really small looking 3000 dollaros buyin (that is compared with end prize) is tempting and I can only congratulate this dude for a great day in the office. not too many players for not a big buyin
