Anuj Agarwal Scoops $10k 6-handed Bracelet For $630,747

While the final day of the 2019 WSOP saw most of the attention focused on the Main Event, there was another $10k event bracelet to be decided, and Anuj Agarwal took gold and $630,747 for his biggest-ever win.

It was Agarwal’s second deep run of the week and offered him a chance to redeem himself after erring to bust the Main Event in 123rd spot, a $59,295 payday but an opportunity missed perhaps.

"It feels great to do well back-to-back in $10k events. I had a little bit of a sour taste in my mouth from the Main,” stated Agarwal after his huge win.

He added: “I made a small mistake, but overall I felt like I played really well for the six days, and I wanted to continue as I could feel objectively I was making good decisions."

Six players had returned to fight it out for WSOP glory, Agarwal’s friend Gal Yifrach as chip leader, but it was Aussie pro Kahle Burns and Agarwal himself who made the running.

Agarwal accounted for Ben Heath, with pocket kings sending the Englishman to the rail, then Dong Chen fell to Burns, before Agarwal found queens to bust Leonard Maue.

The big hands continued, but Yifrach’s AQ couldn’t hold up against Burns’ AJ and it was 3rd place and $257,533 for the 32-year old Los Angeles man.

Heads-up saw Burns close the gap on Agarwal early on, but 29 hands of play in the Aussie ran K8 into AK and when an ace hit the flop it was all but over – Agarwal taking the bracelet.

Final results:

1 Anuj Agarwal $630,747
2 Kahle Burns $389,832
3 Gal Yifrach $257,533
4 Leonard Maue $174,252
5 Dong Chen $120,828
6 Ben Heath $85,915
