Arthur Conan Wins His First World Series of Poker Gold Bracelet

The three largest scores of Arthur Conan’s poker tournament career have all come in 2021. The French poker pro latest big victory in what has become his breakout year on the circuit saw him defeat a field of 161 entries to take down the World Series of Poker Online $10,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em heads-up championship. Conan was awarded $466,167 and his first WSOP gold bracelet for the win.

This was the 24-year-old’s second-largest career payday, behind only the $733,320 as the champion of the $50,000 buy-in high roller event held at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown series in April. He now has more than $2.1 million in career tournament earnings to his name.

Like all of the other players in the final four, Conan received a bye in the round of 256. He then overcame Shota Hirao, Ben Maya, Roman Hrabec, and Stuart Wallensteen to setup up a quarterfinal showdown with Miguel Capriles. Conan made a full house against the trip threes of Capriles in the final hand of that match to secure his spot in the semifinals.
