The World Series of Poker crowned yet another first-time champion last night, as Robert Campbell took gold in the $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw event 33, a $144,027 payday for the eSports boss…

Campbell had fought his way through a 467-entry field to make his second final table of this series, the 35-year old former professional gamer and now CEO of Neon Esports looking to improve on his 5th place finish in the $10k Omaha 8 Championship last week, won by Frankie O’Dell.

With 2005 Main Event Champion Joe Hachem, as well as James Obst on his rail, it was a tough crowd to impress, but when he eliminated both Kyle Miaso and Jared Bleznick he had already match ed his previous WSOP best, a 2015 second-place in the $1500 H.O.R.S.E.

Facing David Bach heads-up, Campbell later revealed: “He’s quite an unorthodox player, so like you have to do a few things maybe slightly differently against him. But, no, I didn’t ever feel uncomfortable.”

Bach was denied his 4th bracelet when his final draw missed, Campbell celebrating his first bracelet win in good company.
