Canadian student wins first WSOP bracelet

Two months ago, Tommy Nguyen made the first final table of his poker career. After having only racked up a handful of cashes, the 28-year-old accounting student made his first final table at a major tournament in Montreal.

He finished eighth for $167,918, which was by far the biggest score of his young poker career. On Wednesday night, he dwarfed that score by earning $1,037,451 in the $1,500 no-limit hold’em monster stack event.

Nguyen bested one of the biggest fields of the summer. The Toronto native navigated through a field of 6,260 entries to earn his first World Series of Poker bracelet.

“I don’t know. I’m just taking it all in right now,” said Nguyen after his win. “I dreamed of this and I believed I could make it. I came for a bracelet and I got it.”

This is Nguyen’s third cash at this summer’s WSOP. It’s a better than average start for Nguyen’s first full summer in Las Vegas.
