He also took home $67,722.09 in bounties for a payday just north of $181,000.

The final table included a WSOP bracelet winner and a former November Niner. Phillip ‘huiiiiiiiii’ Hui, who won a Omaha Hi-Lo bracelet in 2014, finished fifth while Jerry 'hummylun' Wong, who finished eighth in the 2016 WSOP Main Event, also finished eighth in this event.

The final event to wrap up on Saturday included a number of previous WCOOP champions making another final table appearance. ‘IAmSoSo’, who won a WCOOP event in 2015, finished third. Russia’s ‘ImluckNuts’, who won Event #17 (High) in the opening week, finished fourth. Fresh off of his win four days ago in Event #30 (High), ‘DSmunichlife’ finished sixth.
