Yuliyan Kolev has won his second World Series of Poker bracelet and is the newest millionaire courtesy of the popular Millionaire Maker tournament event ($1,125,141 to be more precise).


Just seven months prior, the Bulgarian won his first in online Event #9: $777 Lucky 7's No-Limit Hold'em for $146,163.

"It was quite funny because I knew I'm not out of the tournament but I can't do anything with that stack (less than one big blind). I was thinking, let's observe what's going on at the other table so I folded two hands before the big blind hit me. Then I went all in from under the gun and won and then won the hand in the big blind then everything started from there."

When asked about winning his second WSOP bracelet and first live bracelet Kolev said.

"The feeling is much stronger because all of your friends are here. The pressure is much more."

7,961 entrants took part in this year's Millionaire Maker.
