Simeon Naydenov Wins Event #36: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout
A total of 1,194 runners signed up for this event and created a $1,611,900 prize pool. When the last day kicked off there were 12 players left with the chance of taking home the bracelet and the $326,440 first prize. After about sevens hours of play a winner had been crowned: Simeon Naydenov from Bulgaria.

Naydenov came into heads-up with a 4-1 lead after eliminating Andrew Klock in third place and taking 720k of Jake Schwartz's 2 million stack. The heads-up battle only lasted 10 hands. This is how the final hand was played (after both players had taken a shot of tequila):

Schwartz raised to 60k pre-flop on the button. He was called by Naydenov. The flop came out 4SpadeASpade9Spade and they started to raise and reraise against each other until Schwartz was all in for his tournament life.

Schwartz: AHeart9Diamond
Naydenov: KSpade8Spade

Naydenov had flopped the nuts and only needed to avoid a few cards in the deck.

The turn card was the 7Diamond, keeping Naydenov in front. The river was a blank 2Heart which sent Jake Schwartz packing in second place for $202,035. Simeon Naydenov took home $326,440 in prize money and his first World Series of Poker bracelet!

Nice final hand. Usually they don't tell any story, as it only represent the final massacre of a game with a completely different story to tell, but this one was very good, also due to both hands. Two pairs waiting for full house against flush nuts, interesting.
