Ari Engel won the 2021 WSOP Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 9 or Better Championship event, taking his second gold bracelet after a long heads-up duel with Zachary Milchman.
There were 134 players who put $10,000 on the line in the event, which was high on stakes and low on Texas hold’em. Among those players were Mike Matusow, who came in 29th, and Robert Mizrachi, who accidentally exaggerated rumors of Mike Sexton’s death. Mizrachi took 7th.
The 2019 version of this event had 183 entries and a total prize pool of $1,720,200. The star-studded final table included Shaun Deeb, David Benyamine, Jake Schwartz, and Robert Mizrachi. But in the end it was Frankie O’Dell who came out on top, winning his third WSOP bracelet and the $443,641 top prize.
