The 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #68: $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty attracted 2,854 players ($2,513,360 prize pool) on Thursday and played all the way down to the final table. The next day, those nine remaining players returned to determine a winner. After just over two hours of play, Brazil's Gabriel Schroeder emerged victorious to capture the $228,632 top prize, plus 15 bounties valued at $300 apiece, to go along with his first gold bracelet.

After the win, 32-year-old Schroeder, who started the day as chip leader, immediately began to kiss pictures of his wife and young daughter, who are slated to join him in Las Vegas next week. Primarily an online player with a prior career-best score of $142K, Schroeder is fresh off finishing in fourth place in a Venetian $1,100 Ultimate Stack for $99,922.

On Friday, action resumed at Level 33 (150,000/300,000/300,000) with all players having secured at least $21,340 in prize money. One level in, it was Ryan Goindoo falling first after three-bet jamming ace-ten only to have Schroeder, the initial raiser, snap-call with pocket aces, which held.

South Florida's Jonathan Akiba was the next to go after failing to get there with ace-queen suited against Jordan Jayne's two black kings, and Portugal's Jose Brito followed him out the door in seventh place after losing with ace-six suited to Andy Black's king-queen when a king appeared on the turn.

WSOP Circuit and RunGood Poker Series (RGPS) star Daniel Lowery exited in sixth place after his jack-ten failed to overcome the king-jack of Black, and then Jayne took his leave in fifth after losing a flip with pocket eights against Schroeder's ace-ten suited courtesy of an ace on the flop.
Elson Lima exited in fourth place after getting it all in preflop with jack-nine against Black's two black sixes. A nine on the flop gave Lima the lead but it was only temporary as a six spiked on the turn.

Black took the chip lead and was eying up his first gold bracelet, but lady luck was seemingly against him after he had Schroeder dominated ace-king against king-jack. Unfortunately for Black, a jack appeared on the flop and Schroeder doubled through. Left with crumbs, Black busted in third not long after.

Schroeder took a 3:1 chip lead into heads-up play against Joel Wertheimer, who was being supported on the rail by Vanessa Selbst. Schroeder opened up an even bigger lead before the chips went in with him holding ace-five suited against Wertheimer's king-seven. The ace-high held and Schroeder claimed victory.
