Sweden’s Rifat Palevic has won the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo Bounty event in one of his first tournaments outside Europe in quite some time. He defeated a massive field of 1,868 players to win his first WSOP bracelet, $183,903 and however many bounties he picked up along the way.

"Everything is going through my mind right now," said Palevic after his win. "I actually wasn't even planning on playing this, but I met one guy from Houston, Texas and we played heads-up for a long session in London and he told me that it was not good cash games. And he said 'Let's play this. It's a good tournament.' So, my friends also told me it was a good tournament. I went into it and everything was good. I'm very happy to get a bracelet.

"I have a daughter and she is becoming 12 now in September," said Palevic. "I was playing a lot outside Europe and Sweden, but now I'm playing more now home in Sweden and local games in Europe. It's like when my wife and family have vacation, it's the World Series. That's why I didn't come every year, but I should do it because it's very nice over here. I like the atmosphere, I like the food, I like Vegas, I like everything."
