While the 2018 World Series of Poker main event continued to steal the spotlight at the Rio in Las Vegas, the $3,000 pot-limit Omaha six-max event quietly played down to a champion early Wednesday morning. In the end, the title went to Dutch poker pro Ronald Keijzer, who defeated a field of 901 players to earn his first WSOP bracelet and the $475,033 first-place prize.

Keijzer, whose previous best score came at the 2017 Masters Classics of Poker in a PLO event for $58,971, topped a final table that included notables Ryan Lenaghan, James Chen, Mo Abedi Arani, and Scott Bohlman.

Bohlman, who finished third for $199,572, has put together an amazing summer at the Rio with 11 cashes and four final-table appearances, including a win in the $2,500 mixed big bet event for a total of more than $715,000.

Other notables to make a deep run included Tommy Le (7th), who won the $10,000 pot-limit Omaha event in 2017, Ben Palmer (8th), Brock Parker (17th), Matt Stout (19th), Alex Bolotin (22nd), Phil Galfond (23rd), and Rob Salaburu (24th).

Here is a look at the final table results.
