Champion of the biggest Poker tournament of the year is no one else then Scott Blumstein. He came on the first place and took home the huge prize of $8,150,000. He came into the final table as number two in chip count, but he took the lead early by doubling trough the fan favourite and the leader John Hesp. Hesp lost a majority of his stack in that pot and later that day he lost it all and went out in 4th place.  


Exiting all ins!

The French Poker pro Benjamin Pollak was the only European left when the third day started, many fans including the super famous Daniel Negreanu tought that Pollak had play great during the final table. 

But in poker isn’t always your skill the only thing that will make you win. Blumstein and Ott played for around 2 hours before it was time for the finishing hand and it could not get more dramatic then this! Before the flop did Blumstein go all in and Ott called him off, Ott had an ace and a 8 and Blumstein had an Ace and a 2. Blumstein later hit his duce on the river and that was the card making him the 2017 WSOP winner!

Blumstein has a background of being a online grinder, he comes from New Jersey and have grinded the Online tables for a long time. He felt that not allot had changed in his life lately and the break trough in WSOP was awesome!
