Just two days after taking fifth in the Main Event, Joe Cada has won his second bracelet of 2018 in Event #75, $1,500 'The Closer' NLHE. It's his fourth career WSOP bracelet, and the $612,886 winner's payday moves him over $13M in WSOP winnings.

“I feel amazing!” said Cada. “What a way to cap it off.” Cada was well back early on Day 2 but used a strong middle part of the day to surge to the top of the counts. “I kind of hung in there the whole time. I chipped up well from five [o'clock] to around nine or ten and made the final table. I called off from the big blind with ace-eight and doubled. That was basically the only hand I doubled with at the final table. I lost a flip with queens versus ace-king,” and that was it until the last hand, for almost all the chips in play.

Final Table Payouts (POY points in parentheses):

1st: Joe Cada, $612,886 (1,196.91)
2nd: Paawan Bansal, $378,765 (598.45)
3rd: Jeffrey Tanouye, $278,774 (538.61)
4th: Richard Ali, $206,813 (478.76)
5th: Eric Afriat, $154,660 (448.84)
6th: Richard Cox, $116,595 (418.92)
7th: Jimmy Poper, $88,615 (359.07)
8th: Brayden Gazlay, $67,904 (329.15)
9th: Joshua Turner, $52,465 (299.23)
