The win certainly didn't come easily for Galfond, as he had to navigate through a final table that included the likes of Nick Schulman, Erik Seidel and Dan Smith in order to claim his bracelet. Nick Schulman, who ended up finishing in second place for $138,665, was an especially hard out as he has won this event twice in the past (2009, 2012).

Galfond, who has been wildly successful in the high stakes cash games on both Full Tilt Poker ("OMGClayAiken") and Pokerstars ("MrSweets28"), was finally able to win his second bracelet after a number of close calls over the past couple of years. Prior to tonight, Galfond's last World Series of Poker victory had come in 2008 when he took down the $5,000 PLO w/rebuys event.

With his victory, Galfond now has two World Series of Poker bracelets, 6 WSOP final table appearances and 15 World Series of Poker cashes.


Here is how the final table ended up finishing out:

1st: Phil Galfond - $224,383
2nd: Nick Schulman - $138,665
3rd: Dan Smith - $87,898
4th: Erik Seidel - $59,532
5th: Jon Turner - $42,298
6th: Eli Elezra - $31,463
7th: Adam Owen - $24,457
8th: Bernard Lee - $19,824


With his victory, Galfond joins the likes of Doyle Brunson, Stu Ungar, Erik Seidel and Johnny Chan as winners of the Deuce-to-Seven bracelet.
