2018 WSOP: Event #17: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed won by Ognyan Dimov for $378,743

Bulgarian poker pro Ognyan Dimov was the last man standing in a player field of 1,663 entries in this year's WSOP Event #17: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed event, obtaining his first-ever gold bracelet and the $378,743 top prize. He is the third Bulgarian poker player in history to ever win a WSOP title, next to fellow countrymen Nick Jivkov and Simeon Naydenov.

The 2015 European Poker Tour Deauville main event champion managed to knock out four of his five final table rivals in fairly swift succession to claim the title.

Dimov said after he won, "I didn't think much about it, although it's a huge thing. I tried to stay calm. I felt really good while playing. So I won, and that's really amazing."

Dimov entered the final Day 4 in second place on the chip lead, behind bracelet winner Joey Weissman, who Dimov knocked out in 5th place to take the lead. The final table included four former WSOP champions, with Dimov and Barbato the only two who haven't yet secured a WSOP bracelet at the time.

In the end, Dimov had a massive lead of around 9-to-1 into a heads-up play against Italian Antonio Barbato, who he knocked off quickly 16 hands later. It was Barbato's A-9 versus Dimov's K-6, and the board ran out a J-7-6-5-K, thereby making Dimov the eventual winner by the river.

great to see an international final table with players coming not only from united states but also from Belgium, united kingdom, china, italy and Bulgaria. also the winner turning out to be a Bulgarian. great time to have an awesome run- the wsop, where you take down the bracelet and a third of a million

earn a lot of money from this and a very good realization for a lifetime as well as the prestige of having a WSOP bracelet still takes this lot of money to spend on everything you want

Many congratulations to Ognyan on winning this event and his very first gold bracelet. It's nice to see a player from the U.K. at the final table and i hope we can pick up a few bracelets along the way

SIX HANDS AND A FAST GAME THAT has to have a very well defined range of push / folde because the game requires a more open range and to take advantage of the opportunities and to be more arisque and a duty not an option therefore parabens to the champion

In this tournament there are 5 players who finish in the top 10 and who are not Americans. We hope that in the future there will be more Europeans who win bracelets in wsop tournaments. They have to prove that Europe knows more poker and the ambitions are bigger. It's better in this way for poker competition.
