Margolin wins second gold bracelet

Timur Margolin has been crowned the winner of Event #5: €1,100 Monster Stack No-Limit Hold'em at the 2018 World Series of Poker Europe. Margolin took home the hefty sum of €134,407 and his second bracelet of the year, after winning one in Las Vegas this summer. He overcame a strong field of 666 players and defeated Raul Villarroel, who had to settle for €83,042, heads-up.

With this being only the fifth bracelet of the series thus far, the Israeli contingent has claimed more than half of the titles thus far with three. Margolin picked up his first taste of victory in Las Vegas at the WSOP with a win in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold-em event for which he pocketed more than $500,000. Margolin also joins Hanh Tran as the only players to win a bracelet in Las Vegas and in Rozvadov in the same year.

Margolin was presented the WSOP gold bracelet by King's Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik and had this to say about Israel winning its third bracelet of the series:

"Amazing, it feels awesome. I was sitting at home watching the live stream and seeing what the boys were doing, so I said I have to come to King's Casino. This was the first tournament I played here and managed to bink it."
