Josh Arieh took home the third bracelet in his career in the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha for $204,766.

The Rio was buzzing on Friday for the World Series of Poker as six different events were taking place in various parts of the Amazon Room, Brasilia, and Pavilion.

However, all eyes were on the final table of the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha where longtime WSOP mixed game grinder Josh Arieh, went the distance in commanding fashion, besting the final table of five and picking up $204,766 and the gold bracelet.

At the same time, the $10K. H.O.R.S.E. brought back a stable full of bracelet winners to see who would make the prestigious final table and another two events kicked off to keep the action going throughout the weekend.

Josh Arieh Wins Third Career Gold Bracelet

The final day of Event #39 ($1,500 Pot Limit Omaha) brought back the final six players to determine who would walk away with the $204,766 first-place prize and gold bracelet.

In the end, it was PocketFives own Josh Arieh who dominated the entire final table and earned the third gold bracelet of his career – his first since 2005 – and the sixth-largest WSOP cash of his career.

“I mean, I don’t know, I think I’m really good, just like everybody else,” he told PokerNews. “But I haven’t won a bracelet in 15 years. I’ve come close. I think I have three or four seconds in the last six years and I ****ing dog it, like I choke, and I started feeling that pressure again right at the beginning. But I was lucky enough to hold some cards and fought through the mental weakness I guess.”

Bracelet winner Tommy Le, finished in second place for $126,549 and Robert Blair took home the bronze for $89,968.

“I’m a gambler at heart and I gamble at anything that I feel like I have an edge or I gamble at anything that’s close to 50-50 because I feel like I’m lucky,” Arieh continued.

He also noted that he’s planning on trying to win bracelet #4 in the $10K Pot Limit Omaha. We’d be remiss not to mention that the new WSOP bracelet winner routinely has been selling action in the new PocketFives Staking marketplace – so sign up right here.
