Online pro Shane Buchwald registered for his first-ever World Series of Poker event on American soil and ended up taking home a bracelet just three days later.

616 players took part in the $1,500 limit hold'em event to win his first WSOP title in the first Las Vegas-based WSOP event he's ever participated in. He defeated Sandy Tayi heads-up in just eight hands to take home the $177,985 first place money.

"It's hard to believe," said Buchwald after his win. "It's actually my first WSOP event that I've ever entered. Well, I entered one WSOP Europe event."
