The second-largest WSOP Main Event in history attracted 8,663 players as Norweigan Espen Jorstad defeated Australian Adrian Attenborough. This was Jorstad’s second WSOP bracelet of the series after he won the $1,000 Tag Team with England’s Patrick Leonard.

“I think it’s going to mean more in a few days when it sinks in,” Jorstad told PokerGO following the final hand. “Right now it just feels absurd. I was just so focused on this match. I came in today to just play poker. I tried not to think too much about what was at stake here. I was just trying to play the best poker.” Jorstad now joins a list of Europeans to win the WSOP Main Event that includes Koray Aldemir (2021), Hossein Ensan (2019), Martin Jacobson (2014), Pius Heinz (2011), Peter Eastgate (2008), Carlos Mortensen (2001), and Noel Furlong (1999).
