Chicago’s own Tom Koral has finally won a World Series of Poker bracelet after over a decade of trying.

"Honestly, I still think it's going to take a little bit to soak in," said Koral after the tournament. "I've been coming here since 2005, so 13 years I've been at the World Series and cashing events. I don't know. Finally, it happened.... I love poker, I love the game, so it's really a blessing to finally have a World Series bracelet. I know after a 13-year journey how hard it is to get one."

Final Table Results:

1st: Tom Koral  - $96,907

2nd: Tsong Lin - $59,894

3rd: Yueqi Zhu - $41,349

4th: Alexander Freund - $29,102

5th: Todd Bui - $20,888

6th: Cheryl Denzik - $15,297

7th: Daniel Mogavero - $11,433

8th: Chris Tryba - $8,726
