Dan Heimiller Wins Event #17: Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Dan Heimiller brought one of the bigger stacks into the third and final day of the biggest Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship in history! In total, the tournament saw 4,425 entries and Heimiller bested the final 32 players after almost 10 hours of play on Sunday (the third day).

The 52-year-old Las Vegas poker pro collected the biggest cheque of his poker career ($627,462) and his second gold bracelet. According to Hendon Mob, Heimiller now has $4.7 million in live earnings!

Final table results:

1 Dan Heimiller $627,462
2 Donald Maas $388,054
3 David Smith $279,412
4 Anthony Wise $206,492
5 Dennis Phillips $153,883
6 David Tran $115,651
7 Doc Barry $87,615
8 David Vida $66,945
9 Jim Custer $51,573

George Danzer Wins Event #18: $10,000 Seven-Card Razz Championship

Event #18: $10,000 Seven-Card Razz Championship, the biggest buy-in Razz Championship of all time, attracted a small but renowned player field (112 entries). After three days of intensive play, including a very thrilling and even heads-up battle for the title, Germany's George Danzer was the last man standing and collected his first gold bracelet along with $294,792 in prize money!

This was Danzer's 8th WSOP final table and tenth cash. He now joins a list of few German poker pros with a gold bracelet, including Pius Heinz, Dominik Nitsche and Katja Thater.

Final table results:

1st: George Danzer- $294,792
2nd: Brandon Shack-Harris - $182,155
3rd: Todd Barlow - $114,081
4th: Yuval Bronshtein - $82,602
5th: Brian Hastings - $64,557
6th: Todd Dakake - $51,481
7th: Naoya Kihara - $41,806
8th: David Bach - $34,500


Ted Gillis Wins Event #19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Ted Gillis, a former U.S. marine from Houston, Texas, entered the final day of the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event third in chips (about 1.1 million). After a couple of long and slow hours of play, he had made it to the official final table - where players were eliminated rather quickly. Gillis had about 2/3 of the chips in play once he had eliminated Dejan Divkovic in third place.

Ted Gillis used his big stack well against John Hennigan, a two-time bracelet winner. The fact is that it was game over for Hennigan already after 27 hands of play...

Hennigan shoved his last remaining 1.3 million with QClub9Heart and Gillis made the call with the huge chip advantage. Gillis turned over ASpade6Heart.

The board ran out 10Club10HeartAHeart7HeartKSpade and Hennigan had been eliminated in second place for $319,993.

Ted Gillis lifetime earnings prior to this event were only $10,538, so the $514,027 first-place prize will probably come in handy! Besides the prize money, he now has a gold coveted bracelet to his name - which is something that can earn you respect (and money) at the poker tables! 

Final table results:

1st: Ted Gillis- $514,027
2nd: John Hennigan - $319,993
3rd: Dejan Divkovic- $222,429
4th: Jacobo Fernandez - $160,193
5th: Mustapha Kanit - $117,079
6th: Jaime Kaplan - $86,609
7th: Hiren Patel - $64,911
8th: Edison Shields - $49,267
9th: Dylan Thomassie - $37,834

Dennis Phillips cashed big again and he seems to have cashed really big in the last five or six world series of poker. He must be a good player and it shows his first big cash was no fluke

These events roll out so fast, i remember in other years the play was much slower.

Anyways big congratulations to the winners!

btw. What is the age that you need to have in order to be able to participate on that senior event?

I remember Dennis Phillips from a few years ago,final table 2008 I think,and he won a massive amount for an amateur and maybe he went pro with his winnings as I am sure he has cashed in quite a few since then.

You are right, 10 hours from 32 players to the end, that´s really fast for a live event.

But maybe the blind structure was fast and the play wasn´t so deepstacked.

^ You are probably right, from time to time they make changes when they have the number of events and the time window in which they need to be played...

ANother three events ended in the meantime so congrats for the winners of those events too Smile

Yeah, congratulations to all winners.

Having a WSOP bracelet is a very prestige thing.
