Artur Rudziankov has triumphed in the 2017 World Series of Poker's Event #58, $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em. Rudziankov's victory Monday afternoon was an unscheduled Day 4 session in which he takes home a cool $395,918 along with his first ever WSOP gold bracelet.

The 29-year-old student who was born in Minsk, Belarus but has lived in Prague, Czech Republic, for 19 years.

"Things started out better for me," said Rudziankov, referring to his previous final-two showing back in 2015, when Ivan Luca bested him for a bracelet win. "I had more confidence this time around. And of course I got lucky a couple of times."

1st: Artur Rudziankov, $395,918 (216.9)

2nd: Mario Prats Garcia, $244,611 (184.7)
