$161,384 win for McCauley at WSOP

(via WSOP)
Michael McCauley was crowned the champion of Event #86: $1,000 Super Turbo No-Limit Hold'em at the 2021 World Series of Poker to win his first WSOP bracelet. The American defeated a 1,025-player field and beat British poker-pro Andy Wilson in heads-up play to win the $161,384 top prize.

McCauley had never cashed in a WSOP event before and only cashed in one daily deep stack earlier this year prior to this tournament. This was the only event McCauley played, besides the daily deep stack, and said "he was thinking about going to go play $2/$5 no limit cash game" but decided to jump into this tournament instead.

"This is my first WSOP so it's pretty amazing to come out here and win a bracelet. I was nervous but after I won a couple of pots I settled down and trusted my reads. I tried not to pay attention to the field, trusted my game and I believe I can play with the best of them."

A lot of familiar faces gave it a shot in this event, but fell short of the money places including 16-time WSOP champion Phil Hellmuth, five-time WSOP bracelet winner Shaun Deeb, Jason Wheeler, and Michael Wang.

Plenty of others did make the money though, as there were a total of 154 players that ended up winning a piece of the $912,250 prize pool. Some of those fortunate players included Ryan Riess (152th - $1,606), Aladin Reskallah (149th - $1,606), Landon Tice (130th - $1,606), and Michael Lech (124th - $1,757).
