Norbert won a $1K event and outlasted a field of 2,100 runners to earn his first piece of bling and a hefty pile of cash worth $345K.

Five years later and half-way around the world, Norbert Szecsi won his second-career bracelet. This time it was a mixed event with half NL and the other half PLO. 2018 WSOP Europe Event #6 €1,650 Mixed PLO/NLHE attracted 241 runners and a prize pool worth €343,425.
