#17 $1,500 NLHE 6-Max Winner - Bulgaria’s Ognyan Dimov has claimed gold in Event #17 of the 2018 World Series of Poker, $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Max. Dimov outlasted a 1,662-entry field and battled through an extra fourth day of play to earn $378,743 and his first WSOP gold bracelet.

$565 Pot-Limit Omaha Winner - Local Vegas pro Craig Varnell has claimed the coveted gold bracelet in Event #19 of the World Series of Poker, $565 Pot-Limit Omaha.

Varnell, 35, who previously won a WSOP Circuit ring at a 2014 stop in Colorado, finished off a fast-paced final table that included 2010 Main Event winner Jonathan Duhamel. Varnell sealed the win by eliminating his final foe, Seth Zimmerman, after a back-and-forth heads-up duel.

Adam Friedman Wins $10K Dealers Choice Championship - On Sunday afternoon, Adam Friedman showed that winning a bracelet in 2012 was no fluke.
