The World Series of Poker Event #47, $1,500 Ante-Only No-Limit Hold'em tournament has come to an end after three days of play. Out came Jesse McEuen on top, after winning the special format texas hold'em tournament, beating several well known live pro's such as Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Erik Seidel and Adam Levy.
The tournament saw 714 players join the tournament, creating a tournament prize pool of $963,900 that the players finishing in the money would share. The players battled out over three days and hit the final table early into day three, where the players initially went out quite fast, but later on the play became a little more solid.
It took a total of 167 hands before we had the final hand of the day, at this point the title is up for grabs between Jonas Lauck and Jesse McEuen who are playing heads-up. At this point McEuen had a 2.5:1 chiplead over Lauck, who struggled a bit overall in the heads-up duel. The final hand saw Lauck bet 35,000 into the pot pre-flop, only to get raised by McEuen to 135,000. Lauck thought for a moment and then decided to move all-in, only to get a snap-call from McEuen.
The dealer turns over the community cards and with a full house for McEuen, the tournament was all over for Lauck who had to settle for second place and $130,955. McEuen on the other hand could celebrate his first WSOP bracelet as well as the big first prize of $212,093.
