Tyler Cornell Gets Signature Victory in 2021 WSOP Event #6: $25,000 High Roller ($833,289)

Tyler Cornell The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #6: $25,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em attracted 139 entries, which generated a $3,283,875 prize pool. After three days of play, it was 33-year-old poker pro Tyler Cornell claiming victory for $833,289 and his first gold bracelet.

“It feels amazing,” Cornell said after the victory. “I’ve been trying to do this for a long time and finally got a win.”

Cornell, who hails from the San Diego area and plays at Ocean’s 11, began his poker career online before switching to live cash games. When the pandemic hit, he took his game back to the virtual felt, which was evidenced by a laundry list of results in online bracelet events including last year’s GGPoker.com WSOP Event #77: $5,000 Main Event where he finished in eighth place for $328,305.

Cornell prevailed over a stacked final table, which proved to be a swingy affair with multiple people holding the chip lead.

“Really not until the last hour,” Cornell said when asked when he could taste victory. “I feel like I only got control of the table in the last hour.”

Despite the win in the third tournament he played in the 2021 WSOP, Cornell doesn’t intend to put in a full schedule. Instead, he’ll return home and make a trip or two back to Vegas to play maybe four or five more events.
