German player Hossein Ensan became the winner of Main Event WSOP 2019. It took him 9 play hours and 200 hands in order to beat his opponents.
Hossein considers his victory incredible, because he managed to beat 8,569 players:
"This is the best feeling in my life. Unbelievable! I am so happy I’m here with the bracelet in hand”.
Ensan fought in a heads-up against Italian player Dario Sammartino. At the beginning of a heads-up Sammartino became one of the leaders, but then Ensan returned to the top and continued to play as a chip leader to the bitter end. The German player reported positively on his opponent:
“Dario is a friend of mine. He’s a very good player. But short-handed you need cards. You need hands, and for sure luck. And luck and hands were on my side”.
Dario Sammartino became a runner up and earned $6,000,000 and Hossein Ensan got $10,000,000 and gold bracelet.
