The 2019 WSOP Main Event champion is crowned

Poker has a new World Champion! Hossein Ensan won the Main Event of the 2019 World Series of Poker late Tuesday night, earning $10,000,000 and poker’s most prestigious prize: the WSOP Main Event bracelet.

"This is the best feeling in my life," Ensan said after the event with a huge smile. "Unbelievable! I am so happy I’m here with the bracelet in hand. What can I say?"

Ensan is the second German champion in WSOP history (the first was Pius Heinz, who won the 2011 Main Event). He is also the third Iranian-born Main Event winner, after Monsour Matloubi (1990) and Hamid Dastmalchi (1992).

The 55-year old Ensan is the oldest player to win the Main Event in 20 years. Noel Furlong was 61 years old when he won in 1999.

Ensan had a substantial chip lead when the final table began Sunday evening, and he nearly went wire-to-wire. He eventually relinquished the lead Tuesday night, but reclaimed it and eventually took the last of his opponents’ chips to secure his place in poker’s history books.
