Stoyan Madanzhiev became the latest WSOP Main Event Champion when he took down the tournament on Sunday morning to win his first WSOP bracelet and a $3.9 million first-place prize. Despite the fact that the victory did not have the fanfare of previous WSOP Main Events — and debate remains on if he can be considered the reigning champion — his victory was still an impressive feat and historic win.
