Никита Бодяковский выиграл первый браслет WSOP
After just two days of play out of the originally scheduled three days, Mikita Badziakouski has emerged victorious in Event #85: $50,000 High Roller. Badziakouski topped a 113-entry field to take home his first gold bracelet in addition to the $1,462,043 first-place prize.

The 29-year-old Belarusian has had a number of close calls prior to today’s victory, including a second-place finish in a online WSOP short deck event on GGPoker back in July, and more recently, a fifth-place finish in the $25,000 heads-up event earlier in the series.

“Honestly, the bracelet is not as important for me as it is for many other players,” Badziakouski said on how it felt to win his first. “I will just say it feels great to win a high roller.”

Indeed, it was business as usual for Badziakouski, who said he relied on his experience toward his path to victory.

“I’ve played many final tables. You just try to perform your best — there’s no special or unique ideas. You just do what you’ve learned before and that’s it.”

A regular attendee of high-roller events, Badziakouski had already racked up over $29 million in tournament earnings according to The Hendon Mob prior to today’s victory. Badziakouski’s first-place prize following today’s win marks an incredible eighth seven-figure score for him from tournaments.
