Notable Information

Event 14 played out with a loud and excited crowd cheering on Brazilian Murilo Souza, who went on to win his first bracelet. The mixed game enthusiast beat a tough opponent heads-up, winning with quads, and celebrated with a video call to his girlfriend and family in Brazil.

Through a translator, Souza noted, “It’s amazing. They’re the best players from Brazil. I’ve known them for a long time. We’ve been playing poker together for more than 13 years. Winning here with them watching, I don’t even have words to describe it.”

Young Sean Swingruber won his first bracelet in Event 15, doubling his lifetime tournament earnings. As a cash game player primarily, Swingruber normally stays away from tournaments in favor of cash games, but he felt he had an edge on this event.

With that, Swingruber is expected to be back next year, but in the meantime, he said, “This event was so much fun.”

The next event wrapped with Isaac Baron winning a title, a longtime poker pro and tournament player, both online and live. Known as “westmenloAA” online, the online star won his first WSOP title.

“I’m feeling pretty good,” he said. “It’s been a long time coming getting this first bracelet. I’ve wanted it for a while and am just glad it was pretty easy today.”

Brett Apter also won a bracelet, his first one and first six-figure payday. He admitted to an emotional roller coaster at the end.

“I feel like I’m in a dream,” said Apter. “I wanted this ever since I first started playing poker. Ever since I…knew I was going to the final table. It hasn’t felt real. I’ve just been trying to live up every moment at the final table.” And he did. “I was just soaking up every moment with all my friends here … I wanted no regrets.”
