Jeff MadsenJeff Madsen scored his third gold bracelet and $384,420 at the World Series of Poker event no. 35 $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha.

The event drew a field of 640 entrants, creating a total prize pool of $1,747,200.

Madsen once held the record as the youngest bracelet winner in WSOP history after winning two when he was just 21-years-old, but that record has since been broken numerous times. It’s been seven years since that incredible summer Madsen put together, but he’s been playing poker nearly every day to improve his game.

“I’ve been working to improve my game since then and if anything, now I am a better player,” Madsen explained. “I never really looked at it as a drought. I mean, I did have lots of cashes and winnings since then.”

Madsen was cheered on by his parents and his close friend, popular music producer Steve Aoki.

“I did not know they were coming and they surprised me,” Madsen said. “That’s always motivating, because I want to win for them. That was a surprise and I think I played my best for them.”

Other notables at the final table include Jason DeWitt and Scott Clements.
