Over 20 friends and followers cheered John Guth to victory on Saturday at the $5,000 Omaha high-low split final table. Guth, a 26-year-old professional poker player from Vancouver, Washington, earned $363,216 and the WSOP bracelet for the victory. Guth had never cashed in a prior WSOP event and, en route to victory, eliminated Mike Matusow, Todd Brunson and Annie Duke in succession.

Entering the final table third in chips was only one more thing to overcome, as it took him nine hours to finish off the tournament. Guth's confident nature showed afterwards during interviews, as he told the WSOP's Nolan Dalla, "I will win the (next) Omaha High-Low tournament, too."

Other notable finishers include Randy Jensen (sixth), Annie Duke (13th), Todd Brunson (14th) and Mike Matusow (15th).
