Matthew Lambrecht is the newest WSOP gold bracelet winner after winning Event #76: $10,000 Mystery Bounty at the 2024 World Series of Poker. With Lambrecht's maiden WSOP win over the record-setting 965-entrant field, he also moves into the top ten on the PGT leaderboard.

Lambrecht defeated Damarjai Davenport heads-up to win the $1,018,033 first-place prize, along with several bounties - the biggest being one for $25,000. Lambrecht's win sees his lifetime tournament earnings climb to more than $2.69 million, according to The Hendon Mob. Lambrecht has collected five cashes at this WSOP and two final table cashes at neighboring venues, where he scored a third-place finish in a $1,600 No-Limit Hold'em event at Wynn Las Vegas for $238,079. 

Following a name change from Secret Bounty to Mystery Bounty, the 2024 installment of the event saw a massive increase from the 568-entry field in 2023 to the near-double 965 entrants set in 2024. The $8,974,500 prize pool would be distributed among the final 145 in-the-money finishes, including $2,895,000 set aside for bounties that began on Day 2. The final day of play would see just nine players return with Brazil's Tauan Naves holding the chip lead. 

Australian William Jia was an early casualty when he lost a flip with ace-queen against Neves' pocket eights. Robert Heidorn texted next when his ace-eight couldn't outdraw the ace-king of Lambrecht before Andrei Konopelko ran into the pocket kings of Neves to leave the final table at just six players. Eshaan Bhalla texted next to Davenport before Vladimir Minko fell in fifth place when his pocket tens were outdrawn by Lambrecht's ace-seven. Lithuania's Simas Karaliunas' run ended in fourth place when his ace-nine ran into the ace-king of Lambrecht's ace-king to see him sitting with more than half the chips in play. 

Overnight chip leader Neves exited in third when his ace-five failed to improve against the ace-queen of Lambrecht. Lambrecht would hold a five-to-two advantage over Davenport at the beginning of heads-up play, but Davenport immediately began to close the gap before Lambrecht went runner-runner trips to be back in control. The final hand would see Davenport all-in for seven big blinds with jack-nine against the dominating king-nine of Lambrecht. The board bricked out for both players and Lambrecht's king-high was enough to award him the pot, the Event #76 bracelet, and the $1,018,033 first-place prize.
