Jean-Luc Adam wins Super Seniors event

After three days of action, France’s Jean-Luc Adam is the winner of the $1,000 Super Senior’s No Limit Hold’em event, taking home his first WSOP bracelet and a first place prize of $255,623. In his path to winning gold, Adam defeated a field of 1,893 players including Eugene Saloman ($157,986) heads-up, Scott Sukstorf ($117,181) and Bill Stabler ($87,722).

In post-match comments, the 69-year-old Adam still seemed to be numb from the victory. “It’s a very strange sensation for me because I don’t realize that it’s a world championship. It’s very unbelievable, I don’t understand now. It’s too soon, I just finished the tournament. I can’t realize exactly everything now.”

With his victory, Adam scores his latest ever tournament cash, bringing his total recorded live earnings to $410,327.

Team Ruter secures $1,000 Tag Team Bracelet

The $1,000 Tag Team No Limit Hold’em event is in the books with the team of Mike Ruter and Samy Dighlawi coming out on top after three days of play to win a $113,366 prize and their first bracelets. The duo beat a field of 641 teams including Tomer Wolf/David Landell ($70,074) heads-up.

The pair, who last played the event in 2019 together, said they add their eyes on the Tag Team since being eliminated from the event. “The funny thing is (that) last year, after we busted, we said ‘We’re coming back next year.’ And we did,” said Samy Dighlawi in comments after the match.
