$446,983 WSOP victory for Denove

After eight and a half hours of play on Day 4 of Event #43: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold'em at the 2021 World Series of Poker, it was cash game player Anthony Denove who took down the first-place prize of $446,983 and his first WSOP bracelet.

The cash game player, who up until this week had $76k in live earnings, with his biggest recorded cash being $6,000 has more than tripled his lifetime earnings with his win here today. "It's been my dream to win a bracelet," Denove said overcome with emotion. "I've been playing cash for six years but I do really love tournaments."

Denove, who also recently became a father, was the start of the final table chip leader, full of big names like Michael Wang, Jeff Platt, and David Guay who had come in seventh place in this event in 2019.

"I knew a lot of those players would not be making any mistakes in a lot of spots," he said when asked about the lineup. "I try not to be too conscious of it, helps keep my expectations in check."

The action with the final 17 players was fast and furious and players were eliminated rather quickly. Bracelet winners Jonathan Dokler (15th-$23,877) and Sejin Park (13th-$29,602) came into the day with bigger stacks, but ultimately found themselves on the wrong side of some coinflips and were eliminated before the final table. Within a few hours, the final table of ten was set.
