Dan Zack Makes Comeback to Win $160,447 and First WSOP Bracelet

A run of WSOP final table finishes without landing within the top three places ended for Dan Zack when he captured his first WSOP gold bracelet and $160,447 in Event #6: $2,500 Limit Mixed Triple Draw.

The victory was of the comeback variety considering that Zack was short-stacked for much of the tournament, finally starting to build up a pile of chips when the final table was in sight. At the final table, Dan had to contend with newcomer Sumir Mathur, who amazingly enough was playing in his first ever WSOP event.

While Mathur's deep run as a newbie threatened to be the major story of Event #6, it turned out to be a side note when he and Zack played heads-up for the title. A mixed games specialist, Dan had experience on his side, and perhaps destiny as well.

Mathur settled for runner-up prize money of $99,153, quite a performance for his first ever WSOP. He bested a field of 296, save for Dan Zack, who pushed his lifetime earnings to $871,698 with the victory.
