Michael Addamo WSOP Bracelet 2021

Michael Addamo continues his incredible run of poker, winning his 4th major tournament over the last month. Meanwhile, another big name, Josh Arieh leads at the final table of the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha.

Check out our recap of these events as well as what is ahead for WSOP on Friday.

Michael Addamo adds 3rd WSOP bracelet to hot streak

Michael Addamo has done it again, winning his third WSOP bracelet on Thursday night after taking down the $50,000 High Roller to win $1,132,968. The victory comes a month after winning the Poker Masters — with two tournament wins — followed by a victory at the Super High Roller Bowl.

At the High Roller No Limit WSOP event, Addamo defeated a strong field of 81 entries over three days that included fellow high roller legend Justin Bonomo heads-up ($700,228), Gal Yifrach ($495,305), Erik Seidel ($358,665) and Chris Hunichen ($266,031), rounding out the top five. With the victory, Addamo has now earned $15.5 million in lifetime winnings, according to the Hendon Mob, which is 45th all-time and 1st for Australia.

Although nobody will deny that Addamo is a great player, even Addamo acknowledged afterward that his run has involved a lot of luck.

“Obviously there’s some skill involved, but winning this much is really attributed to luck in the end, so it’s very fortunate. I play a strategy where I put a lot of big bets in. That’s no secret. Sometimes you’re going to be out in the first level and sometimes you’re gonna build up a big stack.
