On the third and final day of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #70: $888 Crazy Eights, a champion was crowned as David Moses defeated Sejin Park in heads-up play to win his first bracelet and a $888,888 top prize.

The event attracted 5,252 entries to create a prize pool of $4,150,761, with the majority of that money awarded to the players at the final table. There were three starting flights and players made the money by the end of the first day. There were 237 players who made it to Day 2 and six of them returned for the final day looking for gold, but only Moses was able to bring the bracelet home.

Moses mentioned he was laid off from work last year and started playing poker regularly since then, which has now culminated in a massive score and his first bracelet.

“Everybody wants a bracelet. They asked me if I wanted a picture of it when we got heads-up and I said I’ll get a picture when I win. Just being honest, the money mattered a lot more. It’s a huge amount of money for an eight-hundred dollar tournament, it’s life-changing money. I’ve got two amazing backers. The series has been kind of rough, but it’s definitely not rough anymore.”

“My friend Manny and my friend Chris O’Neil… I can’t give those two guys enough credit. I’ve roomed with them for the second half of the trip.They have helped my game so much in the past three weeks. I’m actually pretty embarrassed how bad I played five weeks ago before I met Manny and Chris. They think I’m being modest about that but they get a lot of credit for this. It’s insane.”
