It was Bronshtein's 10th time at a WSOP final table, and the most rewarding considering he was nursing a short stack and still managed to walk away with the gold. He told WSOP reporters that he never lost confidence despite having "a rough year."

A prize pool totaling $399,600 was distributed to 44 players, with Galen Hall, Shaun Deeb, Jennifer Harman, Ryan Riess and Daniel Negreanu among the min-cashers. The final table included Jerry Wong ($39,986), who hit the rail in third place and boosted his career winnings to just $8K shy of $4 million.

Heads-up between Bronshtein and Ajay Chabra began with the latter holding twice as many chips as his opponent. Bronshtein battled his way back, snatching the victory from Chabra, who had been rolling over the final table before clashing one-on-one with Yuval Bronshtein.
