Chance Kornuth Wins Event #50: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha ($508,090)

Chance Kornuth - winner!

It's been one of the stranger finals that we can remember, but in the end there had to be a winner, and that winner was Chance Kornuth.

Kornuth turned 24 just six days ago, and what better way to celebrate than with a bracelet win. This is only Kornuth's second WSOP cash, and he had to fight for it all the way. The final table he was up against had some very serious pedigree - Jose Nacho Barbero, Eric Liu, Robert Mizrachi and Julian Gardner were among those he defeated to take the win.

The Amazon Room has finally fallen silent, but we suspect that a pack of extremely happy young folks will shortly be hitting the bars and clubs of Vegas. Chance would be a fine thing, wouldn't it?

From everyone here at the Rio, it's over and out.
