Australian Mike Wattel has earned his second career World Series of Poker bracelet, beating out a small field of 88 and taking home $235,451.

Wattel, an experienced and expert player in most poker formats, had no special formula for success at a loaded final table. “I was just going to play A-B-C [poker] and try to make hands.... I didn't completely have a strategy; I was just going with each hand.”

His career WSOP earnings to date total $2,247,383.

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

1st: Mike Wattel, $245,451 (134.8)

2nd: Chris Ferguson, $151,700 (114.8)
