Final Table Action

Wilinovsky came to the final table of the event with plenty of experience. His live tournament cashes date back to 2011 when he won the EPT Berlin Main Event. That makes this bracelet in Event #8 the second surmount on his triple-crown, just one more to go.

To win the bracelet, Wilinovsky had to beat an international final table sporting eight players from seven different countries.

The USA's Adam Hendrix was by far the biggest name at the final table. With $5,837,987 in live cashes and a runner-up spot in a 2017 bracelet event.

He was also the first out the door, busting in 8th place and taking home $17,787 in prizes and bounties.

Next out the door was online grinder "IM A BIG BOY" who won $23,254 in prizes and bounties.

Dante Fernandes, Vadim Zakharyan, and the two Finnish players Santtu Leinonen and Elias Harala were next, leaving Wilinofsky heads up with the Bangladeshi player, Asheque Elahi.

Wilinofsky was able to close the deal, taking down the event and putting the first bracelet on his wrist.

Elahi won $10,587 for his second place finish plus $7,200 in bounties for $17,787 total.
