Daniel Alaei Wins 4th Career WSOP Bracelet

Daniel Alaei Wins 4th Career WSOP BraceletUS pro Daniel Alaei has won WSOP $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship (Event #61), after besting a field of 386 players over three days on his way to capturing a gold bracelet, and collecting the $852,692 first place prize.
Following the 30 year-old’s victory at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Alaei now boasts 4 career WSOP bracelets, to go with the $6,354,445 he has amassed from live tournaments. Commenting later on his remarkable accomplishment, Daniel Alaei said:
“It feels great to win. It’s been a few years. It’s nice to get this one, especially since I do not play as many as I used to. I gave the first [bracelet] I won to my father. He passed away in December of last year. So I have that one at home. The second one is with my mom. The third one is with my brother. And this one’s going to my wife. I promised her one two years ago and was finally able to fulfill that promise.”
The $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament attracted a talented field of pros to create a prize pool worth $3,628,400. Amongst the notable names cashing in at the event was Scott Seiver in 42nd ($17,162), Marcel Luske in 41st ($17,162), Matt Giannetti in 33rd ($21,081), Michael Watson in 29th ($21,081), Yevgeniy Timoshenko in 22nd ($26,124) and Jonathan Duhamel in 18th ($32,691).
Daniel Alaei was then able to overcome a stacked final table which included Alex Kravchenko and Tom Marchese, to eventual defeat Jared Bleznick heads-up to claim the prestigious winner’s bracelet.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Daniel Alaei       $852,692
