It was a well-deserved victory for Dobrin as he has been one of the most consistent grinders since the start of the series and has already raked up an impressive 15 cashes. The tournament allowed players to re-enter it three times. Dobrin fired two bullets and played aggressively on the final table to claim the bracelet.

After a few setbacks on the FT, he started the heads-up against French pro Idris Ambraisse with 26.9 Million against 33.3 Million of his opponent.

However, Dobrin continued his aggression and moved ahead of his opponent. Finally, it all ended with Dobrin’s Kd Kc beating out 9d 9c of Ambraisse on the final hand. Ambraisse had to settle for $144,998, while Dobrin banked $189,666 in top prize and the coveted bracelet for his grand win.
