Chad Eveslage secured a marquee first WSOP bracelet win with victory in Event #8: $25,000 High Roller.

Jake Schindler was also vying for his first bracelet but fell just short, as Eveslage scooped his maiden title along with $1,415,610 in prize money. This seven-figure score more than doubles his total WSOP winnings before today, and moves him above the $5,000,000 mark in total live earnings.

Other notable final tablists included defending WSOP Player of the Year Josh Arieh (3rd - $616,047) and 2021 WSOP Main Event winner Koray Aldemir (6th - $241,791)

"I feel good," Eveslage told PokerNews. "It's nice to win. It's a lot of money after a tough tournament. The venue is great; it's definitely an upgrade from the Rio!"

Eveslage already has a number of WSOP mixed game final tables including H.O.R.S.E., Limit Hold'em and Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, but says he wasn't surprised to win his first bracelet in a No-Limit Hold'em event.

"I'm definitely better at No-Limit Hold'em tournaments than mixed tournaments. If I had to bet, mixed game tournament fields are smaller, but I'm a better No-Limit tournament player than a mixed tournament player."

Just 15 players returned for the final day, with Main Event champion Aldemir scooping an early double and sending Justin Young to the rail to lift himself off the bottom rung of the leaderboard.

Start-of-day chip leader Chris Brewer managed to hold on to his lead during the opening exchanges, and extended it further still with the elimination of Reagan Silber on the unofficial final table bubble.

Six of the final nine players were looking for their first WSOP bracelets, however Daniel Colpoys' dreams of WSOP glory would have to wait as he bust in ninth.

It's been three years since Ognyan Dimov scooped his first bracelet, but he would have to wait to add to his collection as he was sent packing by Eveslage. He was picking up momentum at the right moments, also sending Antonio Lievano to the rail as he moved up the chip counts.
