Thursday’s action in the 2017 World Series of Poker saw an Australian crusher finally take down his first gold bracelet, having made six final tables over the years. The day also saw a winner in the $1K PLO, the Marathon event play down to a final two tables, the $3K Six Max down to 21, a final table set in the $1,500 2-7, and two events wrap their Day 1s.

Here’s all the latest from the 2017 WSOP.
