Russian poker player Denis Timofeev topped a field of 1,221 players in the $1,000 double stack turbo event at the 2018 World Series of Poker, earning the biggest payday of his career, $199,586, and his first bracelet.

The 31-year-old from Perm, Russia, admitted that he was a little fortunate along the way in the fast-paced, two-day event.

“I don’t understand what’s happened,” Timofeev told WSOP reporters. “I like to play Turbos and Hypers online, and it’s good in live tournaments too because you don’t need to play for a lot of days to win the big money. I just played my game, sometimes I was very lucky.”

Timofeev, whose previous best score was a third-place showing in last year’s PokerStars Championship Panama event for $161,340, topped a formidable final table that included Thiago Nishijima (8th), Justin Young (5th), Ben Yu (4th), and Leo Margets (2nd).

Yu, the two-time bracelet winner, has been red-hot this summer with 13 cashes, three final tables, and more than $1.1 million in earnings.

Here is a look at the final table results.
