After slogging through 212 players, three days of intense stud action and a heads-up battle with Todd Brunson that lasted three-hours, Adam Friedman was crowned the newest World Series of Poker Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better Champion.

The path to collect $269,037 and his first gold bracelet was anything but a walk in the park for Adam. Not only did he have to battle through a tough field that included bracelet winners like Phil Hellmuth who Adam busted in 15th place, Allen Bari (17th) and Eli Elezra (19th) but he found himself at a final table that included bracelet holders Phil Ivey, John Monnette, and Todd Brunson.

Although this was Adam’s first WSOP victory, the Ohio native has made the money in six events since 2005 when his first cash was for $235,390 in the Main Event. His career earnings started with that first WSOP cash and since then, have blossomed to over $1 million. You bested some of the world’s best players to come out on top - Congratulations Adam!
