“I got crazy lucky,” said Ebanks in regards to the hand he busted Chris Meyers on in seventh place, which helped propel him to victory.

“I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to call in those spots,” said Ebanks. “My hands should have equity against their ranges.”

Ebanks busted Bill Khourie in third place after he made a flush on a board that showed a five-card straight and got paid off. He then turned a straight against Khourie when the two were all in preflop a few hands later.

The win is the fifth tournament win of Ebanks career and his lifetime earnings are approaching $3.2 million, according to Hendon Mob.

In addition to the first-place prize money and trophy, Ebanks was awarded a $2,500 seat to the season-ending HPO Championship Event at the M Resort in Las Vegas. That event will take place June 23-26.
