For Belluscio, this tournament marked a personal best, exceeding the $57,613 he netted at a side event in the 2014 European Poker Tour Barcelona. His triumph here boosted his career earnings to nearly $622,000.

The tournament’s final day kicked off with 24 hopeful contenders, with Jon Turner as the frontrunner and Belluscio holding a respectable position. Turner’s journey, however, ended at the 11th place. Before reaching the final table, the tournament also witnessed the departure of notable players such as Bryce Yockey, Michael Noori, and Michael Savakinas.

As the final table was set, Belluscio held the third-largest chip stack, trailing behind Benny Glaser. Anthony Zinno and Hye Park were the first to be eliminated from the table.

Erick Lindgren, despite losing most of his stack in a pot-limit Omaha eight-or-better hand, held on until he was outdone by Glaser’s aces and nines in a five-card draw high. His exit secured him the fifth spot.

As the game progressed, Glaser ousted Tomasz Gluszko to finalize the top three. However, Glaser took a significant hit in a pot-limit triple draw deuce hand against Belluscio and was eliminated shortly after, finishing in third place.

Entering the final heads-up, Belluscio held a considerable lead, which he rapidly converted into a championship title. His final opponent, Federico Quevedo, couldn’t withstand Belluscio’s relentless pressure and had to settle for the runner-up position and $117,577 in prize money.
