Ship it to Israel. Again. Third time so far in RozVegas. That's three bracelets for Israel in five events at the 2018 World Series of Poker hosted at the swanky King's Casino in RozVegas. Timur Margolin earned his second career bracelet after he took down the MONSTER STACK bracelet event. Fellow players from Israel, Tamir Segal and Asi Moshe also won bracelets. Segal won Event #1 a.k.a. the EuroColossus and Moshe shipped the Deepstack for his second bracelet in 2018.

Dhawal Lachhwani from India bubbled off the MONSTER STACK final table in tenth place. Mykhailo Gutyi final tabled another event. The Ukraine's Gutyi shipped Event #4 TURBO for a €61K score and he was seeking another win in RozVegas.
