Blumstein Becomes the World Champion

Heads-up play would come down to Blumstein and Daniel Ott , another young poker pro from Pennsylvania, both players 25 years old respectively.

Even though Blumstein held a large chip lead, he would still need to hit a three outer on the river of the final hand to close out Ott.

On the final hand of the tournament, all in pre-flop, Blumstein held A♥ 2♦, while Ott was out front holding the A♦ 8♦. The board ran out J♠ 6♠ 5♥ 7♥ 2♥ giving Blumstein (pictured below) the championship in dramatic fashion.

Blumstein is a graduate of Temple University and completed a degree in accounting before becoming a professional poker player. Prior to this score he had $312,142 in live tournament earnings, as well as over $150,000 in online poker cashes.
