While there is plenty of talk about Jason Mercier and Ian Johns, UK's Benny Glaser has grabbed the spotlight at this year's WSOP 2016 with two wins in just one week.

After winning the $10,000 Omaha eight-or-better championship for $407,194, the 27-year-old took down $1,500 Omaha eight-or-better event for $244,103.

Thanks to his impressive show at this year's WSOP, Glaser's live career earning have now jumped to $900,906.

The $1,500 Omaha eight-or-better event witnessed a field of 934 players, with Felipe Ramos (9th), Jason Mercier (8th), Todd Brunson (7th), and Matt Glantz (3rd) putting up solid performances.

Commenting on his latest win, Glaser said:

“It’s surprising that I won two back-to-back, full stop. But Omaha eight-or-better is one of my best games and probably the games I’ve played the most hands in online, so it would be one of the top games that it would happen in if it was going to happen. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet. It’s just been a crazy week of grinding and focusing, but now I’ll get some time to enjoy it.”

Final Table Results:

1: Benny Glaser $407,194
2: Skippy Lorgeree $251,665
3: Matt Glantz $175,754
