Daniel Park Claims WSOP Gold and $226K in $1K Super Turbo Bounty

With blinds increasing every 20 minutes and players hitting the rail left and right, Daniel Park managed to come out on top over 2,452 entrants to take down 2019 WSOP Event #12: $1,000 No-Limit Holdem Super Turbo Bounty for $226,243.

It was Park's first ever tournament title, his Hendon Mob resume revealing that the New York native had finished no better than 4th place previously when he earned $170,534 in a $600 buy-in event at the WPT Borgata Poker Open last September. His WSOP victory doubled his lifetime winnings and puts him in good stead to enter his first WSOP Main Event later this summer, he told WSOP reporters.

The old adage that all you need to have a shot at victory is a chip and a chair held true in the tournament when Park was forced to go all-in from the small blind with four players remaining during the 39th level with 500,000/1,000,000 blinds and a 1,000,000 ante. He clawed his way back into contention when his 9-6 connected with a nine on the river.

He then managed to eliminate the three remaining opponents, Australian Emil Tiller ($75,149), Jennifer Dennis ($102,010), and Erik Cajelais ($139,731). Dennis had $1,300 in live tournament winnings before her six-figure score and Tiller had zero.
