When the cards were in the air on the last day of Event #20: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, the chip counts were as follows:

Guess what? All players started and finished in the same positions! On the final hand, Ben Zamani caught heads-up opponent Natasha Barbour bluffing. Barbour shoved her stack with nothing but 10 high and Zamani called with three of a kind aces - in order words, it wasn't a hard decision to make for Zamani.

Ben Zamani, a 28-year-old poker professional born in Germany but residing in the U.S., received his first gold bracelet and $460,640 in prize money. This was his second final table at the World Series of Poker in less than one week after finishing second in Event #14, $1,500 no-limit hold'em shootout.

This event saw a field of 1,844 entries - an increase of more than 15 percent compared to last year. The total prize pool was $2,489,400 and paid the top 198 players. Notable in-the-money finishers include four-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Caufman Talley (10th, $26,337), two-time gold bracelet winners Andy Frankenberger (14th, $20,786) and Greg Mueller (102nd, $3,385), Chris Lindh (34th, $11,003), bracelet winner Taylor Paur (42nd, $9,111), six-time Circuit ring winner Valentin Vornicu (64th, $5,551), Matt Affleck (83rd, $4,231), Melanie Weisner (97th, $3,783), Joe Kuether (139th, $3,061) and Shannon Shorr (154th, $3,061).

Is that Ben Affleck's long lost stepbrother lurking in the 83rd place? I know he has a younger brother named Casey Affleck who is also an actor but who knows how big their to family grew throughout the years... Judging by the pictures they aren't related though, but it's still funny.
