As you might expect from a $10,000 event, the field was a relatively small one, but top pros could be found in most of the seats around the tournament area. There were 136 entries in total, and as the field slowly shrank, several mixed game experts remained in contention. With eight remaining, George Danzer still had players of serious quality to overcome. Namely, Eli Elezra, Randy Ohel, Justin Bonomo, Scott Clements, David Grey and Todd Brunson. These players were all former champions and held thirteen bracelets between them, making for a riveting final table. They were joined by Esther Taylor-Brady, who has twelve WSOP cashes to her name, and is certainly no amateur. She managed to claim her best ever WSOP finish with 4th place in this event, before Justin Bonomo then bowed out in 3rd shortly after. If the name Bonomo sounds familiar, it is perhaps because he already has a 2nd and a 3rd at the 2016 WSOP. Unfortunately for this pro from the USA, he had to make do with another near miss. Similarly, Randy Ohel had managed a 3rd and a 4th in previous events this year, and now adds a 2nd place.

Ultimately, the day belonged to German pro George Danzer. Having rocked the poker world in 2014 by winning three WSOP bracelets in a year, he now has his fourth gold bracelet. He started the series well this year, picking up a 3rd place in the first week, and will be delighted to have added another victory to his list of career accomplishments. He takes home USD$338,646.
