PokerNews caught up with him just after he won. "Oh, I'm still coming to reality…It's a very big deal for me," The new bracelet winner said, still trying to process what just happened.

According to The Hendon Mob, this is his career-best score, as his previous was from taking down a Hustler Casino Employee Appreciation event for $101,181 back in 2019.

"I used to play full time, but then I found a job I really like, around two years ago. I work at an aviation company in Dallas, which means that I don't have as much time for live tournaments anymore, but I still play online every day."

Park explained that this could be why he had an advantage in a turbo structure, as most online tournaments use the same format.

With 20-minute levels throughout the day, the action promised to be fast-paced and it was from the start. Park said he was lucky enough to score several bounties early on, which allowed him to play a lot more loose and aggressive.

A lot of notable names took their shot in this event, like Koray Aldemir, Ryan Leng, Joe Cada, Adam Hendrix, Ryan Riess, and Jesse Lonis, just to name a few. They all eventually fell to the wayside as the turbo structure turned the event into a virtual shove-fest where players had to win scores of flips to make it deep.

The field was rapidly shrinking throughout the day and before the players knew it, they were at the final three tables, then the final two, then the final within just a few levels' span.

Coming into the final table, it was Qing Liu as the frontrunner with 6,000,000 more chips than Adria Diaz in second. Liu had just come off of a hot run as he busted multiple players in rapid succession to amass a giant stack.

Once at the final table, the action still had no brakes as Liu claimed another victim in the form of Thomas Moore, who exited in tenth place. A few orbits later is when Park started to chip up, first by picking up pocket aces to bust Zhigang Yang in seventh, and then picked up aces once again to bust Jose Rodriguez in sixth.

Mark Dube

Dube, who at that point had played fairly passively as he quietly laddered, came alive once it got to five-handed play. First, he knocked out Jungyang Lin in fifth place then he scored a massive double through Li and then finished him off in fourth soon after. At one point, Dube looked poised to take home the bracelet after eliminating Diaz in third place, but Park had other plans. The two players got it all in on a flop of ten, ten, three, with Dube holding a three, but Park held trip tens. Park only improved to a full house on the river and a majority of Dube's stack was shipped across the table. It was only one or two hands later that the two players got it all in for the bracelet, and Park won the hand to emerge as the winner.

Well, that does it for the PokerNews coverage of this event, but make sure to stay tuned as you will find all of the 2024 WSOP updates right here!
