On Saturday, Gal Yifrach added a WSOP bracelet to go with his Circuit ring won 15 months ago. He defeated 868 entries and James Mackey heads-up in the $3,000 no-limit hold’em six-max event, earning $461,798.

“I’m feeling pretty good. I’m feeling great,” said Yifrach. “You know, coming into this event, I didn’t expect, obviously, to win. Everybody has hopes. Everybody is hoping to get very far. I was fortunate enough to get there … But you know, when you run good, you play good as well. It comes hand-in-hand.”

Final Table Results:

1st: Gal Yifrach - $461,798
2nd: James Mackey - $285,377
3rd: Gary Hasson - $193,716
4th: Aaron Mermelstein - $133,731
5th: Darren Rabinowitz - $93,917
6th: Ana Marquez - $67,116

Ryan Bambrick, meanwhile, won the $1,500 pot-limit Omaha event and  $217,123  that came with it.

“I was just trying to play my best game the whole time,” said Bambrick. “And whatever happens, happens. I was really focused on trying to win. I wasn’t really concerned about the pay jumps. I was just trying to win a bracelet, to be honest with you.”

Bambrick, who hails from New Jersey, spent the last seven years working as a day trader. After a very profitable few months online, he decided to pack up the stake and go to Vegas.

“I was crushing it for the last five months,” said Bambrick about his online play. “So, I basically took that bankroll and came out here for the whole six weeks and am just playing every event.”

Final Table Results:

1st: Ryan Bambrick - $217,123
2nd: Sampo Ryynanen - $134,138
3rd: Tim McDermott - $93,639
4th: Phil Riley - $66,342
5th: Jared Ingles - $47,713
6th: Jody Fayant - $34,843
7th: Danny Woolard - $25,841
8th: Randy White - $19,469
9th: Pushpinder Singh - $11,596
