Sunday June 28,2015 :  2015 WSOP Event 49
 
Young Ji claimed his first bracelet and the $231,102 first prize in event 49, a $2,500 buy-in Pot-limit Omaha Eight-or-better competition that pulled in a field of 815 players, generating a prize pool of $1,1 million.
 
Although he has four WSOP cashes to his credit, this was the largest tournament pay check yet for the avid poker enthusiast, who said was confident and had a very positive feeling as the game entered its third and last day.
 
Young Ji did well to survive a very strong field that included many top professional players, including Erik Seidel, John Cernuto, George Danzer, Connor Drinan, Galen Hall, Vanessa Selbst and Eric Baldwin.
 
Besting a final table full of very strong players led Young Jin to a final heads up confrontation with Mark Dube, whom he vanquished after an exhausting back-and-forth four-hour exchange to claim the main prize, leaving the runner-up reward of $142,449 to a disappointed Dube.
