Chris DombrowskiThe winner of event no. 30 ($1,00 no-limit hold’em) at the World Series of Poker, which drew in a field of 2,108 and created a prize pool of $1,897,200 is Chris Dombrowski. The 26-year-old poker pro from Tampa, Florida scored $346,332 and his first gold bracelet.

Since Black Friday, Dombrowski has focused on playing in live tournaments but still plays abroad online continuing to add to his 1.6 million dollars in on-line winnings.

Before taking poker to a professional level Dombrowski was a student at the University of South Carolina.

Dombrowski was perhaps the most accomplished player at the final table, but had to overcome an unlucky seat draw in order to take home the title.

“I came in middle of the pack,” Dombrowski explained. “I really was not familiar with the players that much, but I had played with about half of them during the tournament. I had a big disadvantage because both of the chip leaders were on my left and both were really good players, but I ran pretty well.”

Here’s a look at the final table results:
