Daniel Perkusic earns his first 7-figure payout as well as his very first bracelet!

2024 WSOP Event #79: $50,000 High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha

  • From July 2 to 4, 2024
  • Buy-in: $50,000
  • Prize pool: $6,255,250
  • Entries: 187

From a field of 187 entries in this year's WSOP Event #79: $50,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha, Daniel Perkusic of Germany has emerged on top after a heads up duel with Danny Tang, taking home the lion's share of the event worth $2,100,325.

Final Table Action

The final day (Day 3) started with just five players returning to the Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. Indian high roller Santhosh Suvarna, who recently won his maiden bracelet in the 2024 WSOP Event #i55, began the day as the shortest stack and got sent out after only a few hands.

Chipleader Danny Tang and Dutch PLO giant Ronald Keijzer then created a huge pot of over 20,000,000 chips. Keijzer check-shoved on the river on a paired board against Tang, who eventually sensed Keijzer's bluff (he put all his chips in with blockers to full houses). Tang played the second nuts and made the correct call to eliminate Keijzer.

Tang seemed to run away with over half the chips in play, but Perkusic won some pots against the leader to close the gap. Eventually, Perkusic even surpassed the lead and strengthened it when he knocked out two-time bracelet winner Jim Collopy in third place, when his pocket aces held against Collopy's pocket kings, setting up the heads-up match with Tang.


Daniel Perkusic stats

Daniel Perkusic was the only one without a WSOP gold bracelet going into the final table. This is actually his first-ever live WSOP event he managed to cash in! Despite being a first-timer, he navigated the final table expertly and secured the win after a masterclass heads-up performance. The two-million-dollar prize is the largest cash so far for this Omaha specialist's career, more than tripling his total live recorded earnings.

For Perkusic, this is the second live tournament win of his poker career. His first was in a 2022 European Poker Tour (EPT) Barcelona €10,200 PLO event, where he earned what was then a career-high score of $268,042.

Thanks to this latest victory, Daniel Perkusic now holds his first WSOP bracelet along with the biggest payout of his poker career, worth $2,100,325.

Perkusic's total live cash earnings are now at the $2.7 million mark.

Yeah, it was a sick last hand to win it all with to be honest... I would have played this the same way if I was in the place of Tang - too bad he got unlucky in the end.

Congratulations to Daniel Perkusic for winning the big tournament for more than 2 million dollars, I really like playing PLO, it is a type of poker that is becoming more popular among players, causing large tournaments to be held with that type.

He has his personal life fixed nowadays more than in the past , with Amanda , so maybe this gives him strength to focus more and becomes better , win more . He celebrated his win with his wife , who was by his side this time . I guess this is very good moment for him .
