Ruben proudly wore the shirt of a charity named Shields and Stripes, an organization aimed at helping veterans. Even after beating defending champion Lally to win his fourth WSOP bracelet, Ruben was still focused on those the charity supports.

“This one is very, very special. I feel like this one is a bit taller than me,” Ruben said after his win. “I wore this shirt. It’s a charity called Shields & Stripes. They help vets. They help first responders and police officers who have injuries that aren’t really visible. Honestly, I have the feel like it’s bigger than me. I represent them. I donate one percent of my earnings, but I also try to spread the word about organizations like them and maybe also spread the word on maybe other poker players donating to charity.
