It was min-cash city the first nine in the money finishes for Bojang at this summer's festival, his biggest tally recorded as $6,054 for finishing 245th in the $500 buy-in "Big Fofty". That is, until he topped 1,216 entrants who combined to create a $1,641,600 prize pool in PLO.

Along with his first WSOP title, Bojang pushed his lifetime earnings to more than $3.5 million. His best ever cash remains the $313,444 for his runner-up finish in $2,500 NLHE at last year's WSOP.

Ismael eliminated Benjamin Zamani in 3rd place when he flopped a straight. Zamani missed his flush draw and settled for $131,335 in prize money.

Heads-up action between Bojang and James Little began with the eventual winner holding a roughly 2-1 chip advantage. Like Bojang, Little has also been prolific at cashing at the 2019 WSOP, recording his eighth payday in Event #40. That payday turned out to be 2nd place prize money of $184,424.
