Chicago player in WSOP win.

By RP, May 31, 2014

The World Series of Poker in Las Vegas awarded another gold bracelet Friday when mixed games specialist Brandon Shack-Harris bested a field of 1,127 other competitors to claim victory in the $1,000 buy-in Pot-limit Omaha event and claim the lion’s share of the $1,015,200 prize pool.

Shack Harris’s take-home after defeating Morgan Popham in the heads up was a cool $205,634 and left his last opponent with a still-impressive pay check of $127,245…not too bad for three day’s work!

It was Chicago resident Shack-Harris’s third WSOP cash over the years, but his first bracelet.

Other final table pay-outs included:

Iori Yogo  $79,611
Steve Billirakis  $57,785
Matt Ryan  $42,658
Robert Paddock  $31,978
Patrick Arena  $24,324
Loren Klein  $18,750
Nick Guagenti  $14,469
