Dan Smith has won his first WSOP bracelet after taking down Event #6: $25K Heads-Up NL Championship. The American beat German Christoph Vogelsang for his emotional victory and added another $509,717 to his career total.

About Time!

For many years, Dan Smith has been the best tournament player with a WSOP bracelet win. He now sits in seventh place on the all-time winners list with a massive total of $38,740,742 in earnings.

Now, after topping the 64-player field, Smith can finally set his mind at rest and get after winning some more bracelets that a player of his ability surely deserves.

Almost overcome with emotion after winning the event, Smith said: "It was a tough match, a lot of hands were pretty crazy and it felt like everything was going against me. I'm not typically a sentimental person, but today is and was about the bracelet. I had to get lucky to get there but I'll take it. I'm very proud of what I accomplished in poker and I think this is an important checkbox on my legacy as one of the all-timers. As wild as that is, I'm even more proud of what the whole poker community and I have come together to do with Double Up Drive. We have raised $25 million for good causes and while I love poker, thousands of people that would have died are now alive because of that. I am happy that poker has been my vessel to do this good but I am immensely proud and optimistic that it will continue to do well."
