The World Series of Poker Event #32, $10,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship, has just finished and we have found a winner, a special one in fact. Joe Cada, the winner of the WSOP Main Event in 2009, took down the tournament and the bracelet after beating not only a strong final table, but in general a tough crowd throughout the tournament.
A total of 264 players had paid the $10,000 buy-in to compete against some of the best players in the world, with only 13 of those making it to the final day three. Day three saw the start of names like Erick Lindgren, George Danzer, Scott Clements and JC Tran, but none of those were a match for Cada, who didn't get accused of running good, like some accused him of in 2009.
The players at the final table ensured that the rail had some good fun watching, as there were plenty of big pots being played and lots of action. The players started falling one-by-one and eventually we had the heads-up match for the title, between Jeremy Ausmus and Joe Cada.
The final hand of the tournament was hand #112, where the two players had a setup. Ausmus raised to 120,000 with blinds of 30,000/60,000 and 10,000 ante, only to get a three-bet of 300,000 back from Cada. Ausmus thinks a bit and decides to push all-in and when Cada snap-called he must have understood that he was behind.

Cada shows: QhQk
It is clear that Ausmus has to try and hit either a two outer or see if he can hit a straight draw and his face shows that he has given up at this point. The dealer turns over a board that shows 5s2s4h7r6h and with no help for Ausmus, he finishes in second place after playing an otherwise impressive final table, taking home $414,104.
Cada on the other hand took home his second WSOP bracelet and the massive first prize of $670,041, as well as shutting the mouth on some of the critics who believes he is just a fish running good. You can see the rest of the final table payouts below:
