Hong, also better known as "YellOw" in the StarCraft scene, was visibly touched by the win and his rail.

The Seoul, South Korea player is now up $1,382,266 in live career tournament play.

"For now I'm so happy, my head is empty, very nervous but I am just so grateful that I've won a bracelet," was his response right after winning. "The win at the Wynn Summer Classic was a bigger cash but for me, the bracelet is a lot more meaningful to me and hopefully in the future, a lot more Koreans keep on trying to get the bracelet and hopefully our country grows."

Main Event Field Reduced to 43

Jeffrey Farnes was leading the pack at this year's World Series of Poker Main Event.

Farnes is trailed at the top of the chip counts by Brian Kim. Philippe Souki, Karim Rebei, and Espen Jorstad round out the top five chip counts.

“I guess it’s every poker player’s dream. It’s surreal. I think I’ll pinch myself when this whole thing’s over,” Farnes said about being the Day 6 chip leader.
