The inaugural WSOP Paradise, an additional winter series initiative conceived by the World Series of Poker, concluded at Atlantis Paradise Island on December 14. The champion was named Stanislav Zegal. Zegal emerged victorious from a population of 3,008 participants to earn an exclusive WSOP Paradise Main Event gold bracelet and $2 million in cash.
