Germany's Arne Kern earned $1,173,223 and his first WSOP bracelet in a massive 7,361-entry event. 

Kern claimed the win by coming from behind during three-handed play against UK/Philippines pro Samad Hazavi and 2015 WSOP Main Event champion Joe McKeehen. The 26-year-old from Kilvery, Germany, had only two cashes at the WSOP before this win, the first coming in this same event one year ago. His $1.17 million triumph here was more than 20 times his previous global career tournament earnings.
