Argentina's Andres Korn has collected $618,285 and his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet in Event #56 of the 2017, $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em.

Korn entered the Day 3 finale with the chip lead and continued to separate himself from the other players, eventually eliminating Taiwan's Pete Chen to seal the victory.

Korn's big payday here dwarfed his total previous WSOP winnings of $79,763; that total includes two previous Main Event cashes, in 2006 and 2011. The payday roughly doubled Korn's overall recorded tournament winnings, as he's been an occasional participant in events around the world for more than a decade.

"This was beautiful," said Korn. "I connected with every flop. I won every flip -- the cards just kept coming my way. It was my way.

"I definitely will; I didn't before [have a great feeling for them], but after today, with any eights, actually. In the last hand, when I had the eight-nine, all my friends were shouting, 'This is the day of the eight!'"

Final-Table Payouts (earned POY points in parentheses):

1st: Andres Korn, $618,285 (205.9)

2nd: Pete Chen, $382,122 (175.4)

3rd: Thomas Boivin, $264,306 (155.1)

4th: Marton Czuczor, $185,794 (137.9)

5th: Mike Sowers, $132,767 (123.3)

6th: Simon Lam, $96,472 (110.8)

7th: Andy Spears, $71,300 (100.2)

8th: Mark Zullo, $53,615 (91.1)

9th: Sergio Cabrera, $41,031 (83.4)
