Koray Aldemir WINS
Koray Aldemir has won the 2021 World Series of Poker $10,000 buy-in main event, defeating a field of 6,650 total entries to secure his first WSOP gold bracelet and the first-place prize of $8,000,000. The 31-year-old German high-stakes tournament pro became just the third player from his home country to win the main event, joining 2011 champion Pius Heinz and 2019 winner Hossein Ensan.

“It’s the biggest tournament, the one tournament family and friends that aren’t into poker know of. It does mean a lot to me to win it,” said Aldemir when asked about adding the main event to his already impressive resume.

The career-best payday he earned in this event increased Aldemir’s lifetime earnings to more than $20.3 million.

Aldemir held the lead for much of the final few days of the tournament. He bagged up the biggest stack at the end of day five and entered the first day of final-table action sitting atop the chip counts. After knocking out the second-largest stack at the table and two other opponents to narrow the field to three, Aldemir sat with roughly two-thirds of the chips in play heading into the final day of the largest poker tournament in the world.
