Scott Blumstein became a millionaire and household poker name overnight when he took down the 2017 WSOP Main Event for $8,150,000, and today he's on Heads Up with Remko to talk all about his life-changing win. 

Blumstein talked about all the big hands at the final table that brought him fame and fortune, going over the big bluff versus Dan Ott, the massive pot against John Hesp and the easily forgotten big call he made against Jack Sinclair on the final table bubble. 

The youngster from New Jersey also touched upon how life changing this money and poker fame might be, but that in the end of the day he'll maintain to be a "professional liver". 

If you've missed any of Blumstein's big hands, go to PokerGO right now and relive every day of the Main Event up until the final table. The Main Event final table replays on PokerGO are available for customers in non-ESPN affiliated regions only. Blackouts apply.
