Notable Information

The $400 NLHE Colossus was one of the largest tournaments of the WSOP summer, and Sejin Park of South Korea emerged victorious to claim his first gold bracelet, though it was the second for South Korea this summer thus far. (Jiyoung Kim won the Ladies Championship.)

Park is a cash game specialist in Macau but traveled to Las Vegas this summer to play in the WSOP Main Event, as well as some other events and cash games. “I didn’t expect a lot from this tournament,” he admitted. “With such a low buy-in, I knew there would be a lot of entries.” And that made the win all that much sweeter.

Anatolii Zyrin claimed a win for Russia in the $1,500 Omaha Mix tournament. After finished in second place in another tournament earlier in the WSOP, he was determined to win this one, despite having very limited experience with most forms of Omaha. But he won it over the defending champion to claim his first gold bracelet.

“This is something unbelievable,” he said. He dedicated the victory to his parents, who still don’t support his 10-year career in poker. He also hailed the poker community at home. “We have a big community in Russia; a lot of people follow me as I stream online.”
