More gold bracelets were awarded on Tuesday at the World Series of Poker, which saw the conclusion to two huge low-buy-in events.

After four days of play and 13,565 entries, Paul Hizer is the last remaining player in the $400 COLOSSUS No Limit Hold’em event. Despite some close calls towards the end of the event where he needed a King to save his tournament, Hizer secured his first bracelet and $414,490 in first place earnings on Tuesday night.

Hizer, whose previous biggest win came during a 3rd place finish in the $1,000 Limit Hold’em WPTDeepStacks Hollywood Main Event, now has $889,048 in lifetime winnings. Other big winners from the final table of the event included Sam Laskowitz ($256,170), Jordan Pelon ($193,240), James Scott ($146,680) and Luong Quach ($112,060).

The win was timely for James, who had never won a tournament.

“It means a lot. I played many tournaments. Had lots of deep runs. But I’ve never actually won a tournament outright. I don’t know if many people know that about me. I’m sure my close friends do. And maybe today was just written in the stars and I was meant to go all the way. I felt really confident, I felt like I had a really good game plan, and I’m just really thankful that it worked out.”

James Todd wins Salute to Warriors Event

James Todd is the winner of the $500 Salute to Warriors Event on Tuesday night after outlasting 3,209 entries over three days in what turned out to be a record-breaking field. The prize pool ultimately generated over $1.4 million and raised $74,809 for the USO and other charities. With his win, Todd won his first bracelet and a $161,256 first place prize.
