Experienced pro Steve Sung conquered the massive field in the record-breaking Stimulus Special event to win his first WSOP bracelet.

"I feel that this big monkey is off my back.  It feels amazing to win," Sung Said.

Prior to entering this tournament, Sung played in the Special Anniversary $40,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em Championship.  He did not cash.

"I was really bummed out after busting out of the $40K.  I told myself I have to start playing better. I was able to bounce back."

The $1,000 buy-in No-limit Hold'em event attracted 6,012 entrants. This was the largest non-WSOP Main Event tournament in poker history.

When as ked when he really started believing he might overcome a massive field of more than 6,000 players and win his first gold bracelet, Sung thought for several seconds before he answered:

"I have no idea.  Maybe, when I got heads-up.  But it still hasn't really sunken in yet."

"I am speechless right now," Sung said.  "Maybe in a week it will hit me that I really won.  But right now, I am nor believing this."

Sung's big goal this year was to win a bracelet, nut now he is hungry for more.

"What am I going to do next? Come back tomorrow and try again!"
