The poker professional and businessman from Russia, Nadar Kachmazov, won the 2017 World Series of Poker No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max in an emphatic fashion after entering the stacked final table in the first position with the maximum number of chips.


By gaining this title, Kachmazov won his first ever WSOP gold bracelet of his career. He is very happy about what he has achieved at the WSOP event. He had to wade off the challenge posed by 574 entrants in the event and by virtue of this win; he took the top prize money of $580,338.

Kachmazov said after the victory that he was very much thrilled and happy to have won the No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max event at the 2017 WSOP. He has been looking to do it for the past three years. He likes playing in this tournament. He did not have good luck by his side in his last attempts in this event as he lost two big pots deep previously.

The Russian has been having a low run for the past one month. He finished in the eighth position in the PokerStars Championship Sochi main event in his country. In early June, he was able to win a good event and that was the Mid-States Poker Tour Venetian $1,100 main event. He had to fight with 3,273 players during that tournament and went on to win top prize money of $395,888. Now, he has won his first WSOP title and also the bracelet. He is very happy with the form that he is showing in June this year.

Kachmazov also has won a total of the 1,680 Card Player of the Year points by winning this WSOP event. He has now moved in the 3rd place in the overall POY leader board and this is due to his two big titles this month and is the third place table finish of the year.
