Omar Eljach - 2023 WSOP Europe Event #2 winner

The World Series of Poker headed overseas to their annual pilgrimage to RozVegas for the WSOP Europe. The 2023 WSOP Europe has 15 events and 15 chances to win a coveted bracelet. So far, six events are dunzo and we have six new WSOP champions and bracelet winners.

2023 WSOP Europe Event #1 €350 NL Opener attracted a massive field of 3,503 runners and a prize pool of €1,048,272 for the first event on the docket. The top 378 places paid out and the final 12 places secured a freeroll into the WSOP Europe Main Event.

Event #1 Opener final table included Lukas Pazma, Andras Balogh, Stanislav Koleno, Florin Bilan, Stephan Glausch, Iman Ghashayar, Alessandro De Michele, and Stefan Drusca. Two players from Slovakia were among the final three spots. Stanislav Koleno busted in third place, which set up a heads-up joust between Slovakia's Lukas Pazma and Andras Balogh from Hungary. When the dust settled, Pazma was the last player standing and he snatched up a bracelet for Slovakia to kick off the 2023 WSOP Europe.

Event #2 €550 PLO 8-Max attracted 719 runners and a prize pool worth €341,925. The top 109 places paid out.

Israelashvili was picked off in eighth place.

Event #3 €1,350 Mini Main Event attracted 1,729 entrants and a guaranteed prize pool worth €2 million. Greece's Sokratis Linaras banked €310,350 for the victory. He outlasted a tough final table that included Daniel Lehmann, Jamel Ghizaoui, Omar Eljach, Bayar Saran, Georges Chehade, Aleksej Grenz, and Francis Klar. Sweden's Eljach went deep for a second time in three events, and he had a narrow miss with a third-place finish.

Event #4 €2,000 PLO attracted 206 runners and a prize pool worth €362,045. Hokyiu Lee, a cash-game specialist from Hong Kong, secured a bracelet and €91,183 in cash for his epic run in PLO. Lee edged out Italian pro Dario Alioto for the victory, and Alioto settled on a runner-up finish. The final table in 2K PLO also included Gab Yong Kim, Daniel Smuskovics, Barny Boatman, Bruno Stefanelli, Zhengfa Ye, and Namhyung Kim. Boatman from Hendon Mob fame hit the bricks in fifth place.

Event #5 €550 Colossus attracted another massive field with 3,236 entries. The prize pool topped €1.6 million. Three out of the final four players hailed from Italy, and Ermanno Di Nicola was the last player standing. Di Nicola banked €200,000 and snagged his first piece of WSOP hardware. Poland's Alain Saka was the runner up, and Italy's Angelo Marrone took third place and Alessandro Predaroli busted in fourth. Also advancing to the final table were Tobias Peters, Julien Loire, Xhavit Berisha, and Juuso Luokkanen.

Event #6 €5,000 PLO attracted 202 runners and a prize pool worth a little more than €911K. Omar Eljach's run good continued when he final tabled a third event in the first six tournaments at the 2023 WSOP. Once again, the Swede missed another bracelet when he was knocked out in second place. Hong Kong's Wing Po Liu held off the surging Eljach to win his first bracelet and €230,000 in cash. The 5K PLO final table also included Kasparas Klezys, Anson Tsang, Marco Di Persio, Gergo Nagy, Wooram Cho, and Tong Li.
