Michael Addamo picks up another WSOP bracelet and sixth title of the year

The WSOP wins keep coming, with a regular fixture adding another

This year has been nothing but great when it comes to high-stakes tournaments for Michael Addamo. Since September 18, the 27-year-old professional player from Australia, has reached a total of eight final tables, winning six of them and collecting more than $9 million in a period of no more than ten weeks. His most recent victory evidenced how he was able to overcome a field of 64 entries in a huge buy-in World Series of Poker (WSOP) event. The player, having been crowned champion of the $100,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event, also took home the fourth gold bracelet of his career.

The big win also made Addamo’s bankroll even fatter, with a total of $1,958,569. This is the second time the poker pro has had a remarkable streak, where he has won two gold bracelets in a single year. The first time Addamo earned his first piece of hardware from this prestigious event was in 2018 when he was crowned champion of the $2,620 buy-in event of the 2018 WSOP known as “The Marathon.” During that same year, a while later, he was also able to run roughshod over all his opponents in the $25,500 high roller at the WSOP Europe, making him earn his second bracelet.

After winning this recent title, Addamo told reporters, “I’ve been playing non-stop for three and a half months straight, so I am ready for a break.” No doubt it is a well-deserved break as during that time, the player has demonstrated the skills necessary to be considered one of the most successful professionals in recent times.
