Another event at the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) came to and with Josh Arieh lifting his third WSOP title. Event #39: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha, which witnessed 821 players and generated a prize pool of $10,96,035 came to an end after three days of gameplay.
The final table of five was a cut-throat one, as it had three former WSOP bracelet winners Josh Arieh, Tommy Le, and Ivan Deyra. However, it was Arieh who claimed victory by adding another gold bracelet to his credit in just three hours and walked away with $2,04,766 to his bankroll.
The 47-year-old, who couldn’t believe he had nailed another bracelet and was clearly emotional as he told PokerNews, “I was just texting my girls,” said Arieh. “It’s like the whole reason why I work, and it’s tough being out here for so long. I actually just came back, had some good times with them. But I was just thinking about my girls and life, and thinking about everything, and just really excited.”
The first to leave the table among the top five was Gabriel Andrade, who was sent away by Robert Blair. Andrade walked away in fifth place with a paycheque of $47,492. Former WSOP winner Deyra was next in line. The french pro was busted by Arieh for $64,890 in third place.
Soon after, Blair departed in third place. The player bid farewell to the final two on the table when Arieh busted him for $89,968. The final two players had a pretty interesting run before Arieh finally beat Le to win the title. Le finished at the runner-up spot for $1,26,549.
