The poker world has crowned a new champion! Saturday was the biggest night of the year for poker players and fans – the conclusion of the World Series of Poker Main Event. When the last river cards was dealt, Scott Blumstein of Brigantine, New Jersey held all the chips. Blumstein earned $8,150,000 for first place and now holds the most coveted prize in poker, the WSOP Main Event bracelet. The victory puts Blumstein in select company in poker history, placing him alongside legends of game like Johnny Moss, Stu Ungar, Johnny Chan, Carlos Mortensen, and Martin Jacobson.
After the event, Blumstein was the picture of humility. One of his first remarks in the post-tournament press conference was to thank his parents for their support, as well as friends who helped him improve his skill set and prepare for the final table. And when asked if he'd now start playing high roller events, he shrugged and said most likely not. "I don’t have an ego in this game," he added "I know where I stand. I know two weeks ago I was just a New Jersey online grinder and nothing’s really changed [...] This is just one poker tournament. It takes variance and luck and playing your best. And all those things came together."
