Miami's Luis Calvo has won the 2017 World Series of Poker's Event #49, $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed and the $362,185 that came with it. 

Calvo had earned $110,614 in two previous WSOP cashes.

"I flopped top pair and a flush draw and I had three live cards. I figured he was going to do a continuation bet. Little did I know he had a huge hand as well. Once I check-raised him to 1,000,000, he tanked for a while and put me all in; there was no--- I just couldn't fold there. I couldn't leave myself too short. And I figured I had outs where I was still okay. I still felt like I could win the hand. If he had a set I could make a flush. If he had a bigger flush draw maybe I could make two pair. That's exactly what happened. He had no pair," and when Reilly missed his plentiful draws, the pot was Calvo's.

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

1st: Luis Calvo, $362,185 (187.6)

2nd: Rudolph Sawa, $223,812 (159.8)

3rd: Mark Reilly, $149,258 (139.6)

4th: Eric Hicks, $101,513 (122.8)

5th: Aleksei Altshuller, $70,438 (108.7)

6th: Gerhard Schleicher, $49,885 (96.9)
