Chicago Player In World Series Of Poker Win

Mixed games specialist Brandon Shack-Harris bests 1,127 to take home $205,634

The World Series of Poker in Las Vegas awarded another gold bracelet Friday when mixed games specialist Brandon Shack-Harris bested a field of 1,127 other competitors to claim victory in the $1,000 buy-in Pot-limit Omaha event and claim the lion's share of the $1,015,200 prize pool.

Shack Harris's take-home after defeating Morgan Popham in the heads up was a cool $205,634 and left his last opponent with a still-impressive pay check of $127,245…not too bad for three day's work!

It was Chicago resident Shack-Harris's third WSOP cash over the years, but his first bracelet.

Other final table pay-outs included:

Iori Yogo $79,611

Steve Billirakis $57,785

Matt Ryan $42,658

Robert Paddock $31,978

Patrick Arena $24,324

Loren Klein $18,750

Nick Guagenti $14,469
