Chris Brammer of England has won the Event #45 of the 2017 World Series of Poker, $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em.  He takes home $527,555, besting a field of 505.

Brammer credited his own run-well at the final table more than anything else. “It's a turbo tournament," noted Brammer. “The blinds went up fairly quickly and that creates a lot of all-in action. I won pretty much all of them.

“I got a lot of good cards as well. I could shove into them, put pressure on them. I was dealt a lot of good hands.”

“I came reasonably close before,” Brammer added, referring to his fifth-place showing in Event #57 of the 2012 WSOP, Event #57, the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship. “That one hurt for a long time.”

1st: Chris Brammer, $527,555 (195.3)

2nd: Jett Schencker, $326,051 (166.3)
