Sean Getzwiller turned his $1,000 investment into $611,185 by winning the 4,178-player Event 8 “Stimulus Special”

"I feel amazing," he said after his victory. "I mean, I won a bracelet in a 4,000-player event. How much better can I feel? I ran really well. I won a great tournament. If you're going to win a 4,000-player event you've got to feel really good and run really well. I'm just happy that I'm here."

The 33-year-old former real estate agent currently resides in Las Vegas. 

"I didn't think it was going to be easy," said Getzwiller of the final table. "We got a lot of chips in play and when we were heads-up we were really deep. [Sadan Turker and I] both had like 80 big blinds, so there was a lot of play and we just lasted four hours. He is a heck of a player."
