The World Series of Poker $5,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em event drew 574 players that built a $2.6 million prize pool. The final six players returned on Wednesday, playing out the final table live exclusively on PokerGO and Nadar Kakhmazov and won his first bracelet for $580,338 in just his third WSOP cash.
“I am very happy – I have wanted to do this for three years but every time I lose two big pots deep in the tournament,” Kakhmazov said. “I try all the time to play better and better – it’s great for Russian poker.”
Kakhmazov just came off a big win at the Venetian MSPT Main Event for $440,029 – totaling $1.02 million inside a week. A suddenly flush bankroll has him committed to play the $10,000 Six Max No Limit Hold’em Championship, the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha High Roller and the Main Event.
“I have played other events but had not won much for prizes,” he said. “But now, it’s a good year.”
The entire final table is available in its entirety on PokerGO, along with all of the other WSOP streams from this year.
