Christopher Vitch, 34, of Phoenix, Arizona has defeated Benny Glaser to win the Seven Card Hi-Lo or Better Championship Event #48 at this year’s World Series of Poker.

The win is the second WSOP bracelet title for Vitch, who also took down the 2016 WSOP's Event #40, $2,500 Mixed Lowball Triple Draw.

Vitch's win here was the largest payday of his WSOP career, and it swelled those career earnings to $913,164

Early in the final day, Vitch told his followers on Twitter that he was hoping for a “Wheely wheely good day,” and it certainly turned out that way, though not without the heads-up struggle against Glaser.

“It certainly did [turn out that way], said Vitch. “Things went really smoothly all day. Mostly I had plenty of chips throughout the whole thing. Only in the heads-up it did it get where Benny had the advantage for a while. Overall it was just one of those days where everything went my way.”

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

1st: Christopher Vitch, $320,103 (147.3)

2nd: Benny Glaser, $197,838 (125.5)

3rd: Abe Mosseri, $138,608 (111.4)

4th: Jameson Painter, $99,342 (99.7)

5th: Jonathan Duhamel, $72,876 (89.9)

6th: Andrew Kelsall, $54,748 (81.8)

7th: Brock Parker, $42,146 (74.9)

8th: Alex Luneau, $33,265 (69.2)
