Daniel Weinman has won the 2023 WSOP Main Event, earning the second gold bracelet in his poker career and taking home a juicy $12.1 million top prize.

Let's take a look at what happened during July 17 Monday in Event #76: $10,000 NLHE Main Event - World Championship of the 2023 WSOP at the Horseshoe Event Center, Las Vegas.

2023 WSOP Event #76: $10,000 Main Event NLHE World Championship

  • Buy-in: $10,000
  • Date: July 3 to 17, 2023
  • Entries: 10,043
  • Prize pool: $93,399,900

Daniel Weinman outlasted a player field of 10,043, the biggest attendance in WSOP history. He scooped up the prize money worth $12.1 million along with his second gold bracelet.

He actually just earned his first WSOP gold bracelet last year, after winning Event #30: $1,000 PLO event for $255,359.

The 35-year-old's triumph in the record-breaking Main Event, which attracted 10,043 players that generated a prize pool worth $93,399,900, was astonishingly spectacular considering he was actually two cards away from falling on Day 8 before hitting a two-outer in what will go down as one of the most pivotal suck-outs in poker history.

After 16 years of grinding the WSOP series and only cashing the Main Event once, the man from Atlanta, Georgia had little hope of winning when he registered for the $10K buy-in Poker Championship after taking a break midway through the series.

Weinman said, "I was honestly on the fence about even coming back and playing this tournament."


Final Table Action

It only took Weinman just 164 hands at the final table to grasp the victory, making it the shortest Main Event final table ever. Day 10 was the fastest so far, clocking at under three hours after Adam Walton's elimination in 3rd place for $4M and a brief heads-up battle between Weinman and Steven Jones, a real estate investor from Arizona whose poker activity now brings him $6.5M.

Weinman has now become the winner of the WSOP Main Event with the highest prize money ever, all thanks to the highest number of player attendance in poker history.

Winner's Reaction

Supported by an all-star rail which included a trio of six-time bracelet winners Josh Arieh, Shaun Deeb and Jason Mercier, Weinman wore the biggest smile in the entire Horseshoe Event Center as he reflected on winning the biggest WSOP Main Event in history, which now beats the record set in 2006 when Jamie Gold won $12,000,000.

"I've always kind of felt that poker was kind of going in a dying direction, but to see the numbers at the World Series this year has been incredible. And to win this Main Event, it doesn't feel real. I mean, (there's) so much luck in a poker tournament. I thought I played very well, but so many hands that (I got) incredibly lucky for the situations to arise."

Weinman did not have grand plans when asked what he will do with his historic winnings.

"I have no clue. Probably invest it. Probably not the best answer everybody wants to hear, but I'm fairly cautious with it away from the table. Even though I like to gamble pretty hard."

His win started with that hand!

of course, when I saw that he got the J on the turn I said this is his tournament, he is also a great player, in an interview he did after winning the tournament he said he did not plan to play it, but a friend encouraged him so he could do it one more time.

poker is poker and you need a little luck, but here it depends more on the other abilities. It is true that luck is part of the game, but only to a small extent. Talent remains the basis and intuition.
 geseco1229/07/2023 02:23:11 GMT
Of course my friend, poker has a little luck, the rest is work, study and skill of the player, this player is very good, throughout the event has shown that he deserves it as many of the final table.
 dule-vu29/07/2023 05:01:47 GMT

Here we are not only for money, we are here to have fun in these games that the platform shows, I love to know that somehow we can win to enjoy these games, especially online poker.
 dule-vu04/08/2023 04:39:40 GMT
Its about main event and winner, not what you like to play!
 geseco1205/08/2023 23:16:25 GMT
you are in everything my friend, a good comment from you, this player was almost an unknown for many, but after he won the tournament he is a referent and at the same time famous.
 dule-vu05/08/2023 23:19:25 GMT
Good for him!
 geseco1209/08/2023 16:47:39 GMT
a tremendous prize he took in this tournament, we don't know how much actually goes to him after taxes, but he still has a lot of money left, I want these events to be at least twice a year, it's incredible to enjoy it.

 geseco1211/08/2023 20:16:00 GMT
since he won his first wsop tournament I have started to follow him, I love him as a player and also as a person, in his networks he shows his day to day and that motivates me to continue playing poker.
 CALICUL11/08/2023 20:24:35 GMT
he won and is a big champion at the WSOP and that is very good for him. A lot of money with which he can live very well and play poker much more relaxed. He is very happy now. Good job...
 geseco1214/08/2023 03:04:13 GMT
The joy that this player emanates is incredible, and it is not for less, the amount of money that he took is inexplicable, also he values it much more because the cooler that was about to eliminate him favored him and he was able to stay alive in the tournament.
 dule-vu14/08/2023 05:35:30 GMT
You are incredible also!
 geseco1218/08/2023 04:09:32 GMT
I am very happy to see these players earn a lot of money, it seems that I have earned it myself, it is always nice to see that, and behind it there are many beautiful stories of their process as a player.
 dule-vu18/08/2023 08:04:22 GMT
He still talk about wsop...
