June 10, 2021

The $10,000 buy-in World Series of Poker World Championship Omaha Eight-or-Better event (#18), wrapped up yesterday with Daniel Alaei taking the title and his second WSOP bracelet.

Alaei beat out a surprisingly star studded final 17 for an open event that included Scott Clements, Alex Kravchenko, John Monnette, Toto Leonidas and two PokerRoaders Annie Duke and Daniel Negreanu

Both Duke and Negreanu were dangerously short numerous times throughout the difficult final day of play, but remarkably were both still able to squeak their way onto the final table before finally being dispatched with.

For the first place finish Alaei pocketed $445,898.
