American Jeffrey Smith from Encinitas, California has just laid hands on the $323,125 top prize and his very first gold coveted WSOP bracelet after besting a field of 1,940 players over 3 days of play! Smith defeated his final opponent, Danny Nguyen, after an extremly tight heads-up battle that lasted for three hours.
In the final hand, Smith raised to 160k and Nguyen pushed all in. Smith called right away and turned over A9, Nguyen showed Q6. The board ran out 935910 and Smith won the final hand of the tournament with three of a kind nines. Danny Nguyen received $199,829 for his runner-up finish.
Cheers yeah grats to him for beating a huge field and a bit sad about Nguyen not winning, but you know , pros cannot win all hands, anyway on his name it is so generic that we can think that it might be a fake lol. Anyway congratulations to him. Hope the tournaments get more winners, so far I heard about a lot of pro players and not much new players coming in!
Congratulations to the winner, that was a pretty fierce heads up battle if you ask me I guess that on the final hand even if he did not had luck and take the hand down, he could not be disappointed since he had the better hand preflop.
