The World Series of Poker Event #42, $5,000 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha poker tournament has come to an end after three days of play. Several of the most famous players lined up to participate in the tournament, including Sorel Mizzi, Phil Laak and Kory Kilpatrick, alongside a total of 542 entrants that created a $2,124,400 prize pool.
In the end it was American Michael Drummond who won the tournament as well as his first bracelet, in the first tournament he has played at this year’s WSOP.
