Jack Sinclair wins the WSOPE Main Event

The Brit goes one better than his big final table in Vegas last year with a bracelet and seven-figures at the King's Casino in Rozvadov.

British poker pro and former WSOP Main Event finalist Jack Sinclair is the World Series of Poker Main Event champion. 

There were 534 entries this year, a slight increase on last year's 529, once again ensuring the winner would go home a millionaire. 

The early headlines were all about Ryan Riess, who was looking strong and had the potential to become only the 2nd player to win both the WSOP and WSOPE Main Event (alongside Phil Hellmuth). 

However that was not to be as he exited in 4th place, to leave a dominant performance by Sinclair that saw him take down his first bracelet and €1,122,239

It may be his first gold strap but it wasn't his first seven-figure score, as he came 8th last year in the WSOP Main Event for $1,200,000. This time around the final table went much better, he commented:

It's like being in a dream at the moment. The whole week has been absolutely insane; just super smooth and not like any other tournament I've ever played. I never really lost a big pot as far as I can remember and just got all the hands when I needed them. Every time I felt like things were getting precarious I instantly won a big pot. I'm very happy with how I played and even more happy with how I ran!"
