Stavrakis more than doubles career WSOP earnings

Baltimore, Maryland's Filippos Stavrakis has claimed his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet in Event #26 of the 2018 WSOP, $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha.

The $169,842 winner's payday for the 46-year old Stavrakis easily exceeded his previous WSOP career winnings of $92,737, spanning 20 previous WSOP cashes. Stavrakis, a native of Athens, Greece who now works in manufacturing in Maryland, topped a final table of professional players to claim this win.

Stavrakis's final foe was Oceanside, New York's Jordan Siegel, who was seeking his own first bracelet in his 33rd career cash. Siegel, 46, who's known within the poker world as the emcee of NBC's “National Heads-Up Poker Championship”, collected $104,924 for the second-place run.

Third place in this event went to popular Brazilian pro Felipe Ramos, whose effort here fell short despite the support of a huge, vocal rail. Ramos, 35, of Sao Paulo, earned $73,989 here.
