Koray Aldemir Wins 2021 WSOP Main Event for $8 Million

The day has come – poker has a new world champion. Koray Aldemir, a German poker pro living in Vienna, Austria, has managed to top the 6,650-player field that gathered for this year’s WSOP Main Event. He is the last champion to be crowned at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, off the Vegas Strip. In his last hand, he got dealt 10d7d. He got a lucky flop and made two pair, while his opponent, George Holmes, decided to float against a check-raise with King high. Holmes made a pair of Kings on the turn, but it was no good. After an ambitious shove on the river from Holmes, Aldemir ended up looking him up with his two pair. This gave him poker’s most coveted title, along with the $8 million first prize money! You can watch the last hand below, presented by PokerGO.

What Not to Say at a Poker Table

The people who manage the PokerStars YouTube channel are gracious enough to comb through hundreds of hours of footage week after week to give us interesting, fun-to-watch compilations based around a theme. This week’s theme is (possibly) over the line table talk. Or, it’s just situations where players manage to talk their opponents into the correct decision in the hand. Either way, as we said, it’s a video compilation that is sure fun to watch!
