Event #36: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Congratulations to Scott Montgomery, Event #36 Champion ($481,760)!

Scott Montgomery - Event #36 champion

Two years ago Scott Montgomery was a part of the inaugural November Nine. While he came up short of a bracelet with a fifth place finish on that final table, he completed the job this time around by winning the bracelet this evening. While the payday for today's win may not come close to what he earned in the 2008 Main Event, it's the bracelet that's invaluable and perhaps his greatest accomplishment.

Montgomery started the day with the second-shortest stack, but his aggressive playing style soon saw him propel towards the top of the table on his way to accumulating every chip in play.

In addition to the bracelet, Montgomery will be walking to the cage to cash in a receipt worth $481,760. It'll be his second-largest cash to date and worth more than every live cash he's earned since making the Main Event final table two years ago.

Congratulations to Montgomery for taking home the bracelet and walking away as champion of Event No. 36! Stay with us at PokerNews through the rest of the series as we bring you more stories of accomplishment.
