It's the second WSOP title for Pollock, the first coming in 2013 when he took home $279,431, the largest cash of his career. Josh's 6-year old gold bracelet was also won playing PLO.

Unlimited re-entries for this event resulted in 652 unique entries and 564 re-entries. With a $600 buy-in, the bullets were flying. The prize pool came to $656,640.

Among the final tablists was Phil "HeyGuys" Galfond, who was chipleader for a time but ended up finishing 5th for $29,680. Also standing in Pollock's way was Jason "TheBigGift" Gooch, the runner-up who banked $85,560 in his WSOP.com account after nearly 13 hours of online play.

The final hand saw Gooch hit two pair on the turn and looking for some help on the river to make a full house and defeat Pollock's nut flush. It never happened and loofa nabbed the gold.
