The first WSOP braclet of 2008 was just awarded minutes ago to Canadian poker player and Full Tilt Poker pro, Nenad Medic.
The 3 day long $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold’em World Championship brought out some of the biggest names in poker and a many familiar faces at the final table. This is Medic’s first ever WSOP bracelet but he is no stranger to cashing in many big tournaments. Medic won the 2006 WPT Championship for over $1.7 Million Dollars.
Medic beat out 352 players to take the prestegious title and WSOP bracelet.
“It was a tough field, the whole tournament, all the way to the final table…I always had a decent stack. The ace-king versus kings — I didn’t feel too good about that, but it worked out,” he said to ESPN’s Norman Chad in his post-victory interview.
Finishing 2nd was Andy Bloch who was hoping to take home the bracelet on his birthday. When asked if Medic felt bad about beating Bloch on his birthday, he replied: “Not at all” with a sly smile on his face.

1 Nenad Medic – $ 794,112
