Poker players like Omaha, and to prove it, 970 of them lined up to play Event #11 at the World Series of Poker - the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha. After three days of intense play, it was Vincent Van Der Fluit, who was left standing to pose with his first gold bracelet and $265,211 in cash.

The final table was comprised of players from five different countries and one bracelet owner - Tristan Wade. In spite of the stiff competition, 24 year old online pro Van der Fluit seemed to effortlessly dispatch his opponents one by one until he faced WSOP Circuit Champ Charles Tonne. Entering heads-up play, both players were about even in chips, but it wasn’t long before Tonne was all-in, watching Van der Fluit’s higher flush clinch him the title.
