Hossein Ensan celebrated his victory in the historic Main Event, which was timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of WSOP tournaments. The tournament was attended by 8569 players. Hossein Ensan received $10,000,000. In addition to him, Dario Sammartino and Alex Livingston also made it to the final day. It took Hossein 9 hours of play and almost 200 hands to win the tournament.
Dario Sammartino confronted him in the heads-up. Despite the fact that Ensan had a large stack, most of the spectators were confident in Sammartino’s victory. At one point, Sammartino had an advantage in chips, but Ensan soon took the lead in his own hands.The Italian again check-raised all in on the turn and again was up against two kings. This time, however, he only had a combo draw and needed to improve on the river. A brick river fell and Sammartino had to console himself with $6 million and another close call in a marquee bracelet event — he previously finished third in the $100K High Roller for One Drop in 2017.
«It is the best feeling I have in all my life,” he said, grinning the smile that seems eternally etched on his features.»
