Pierre Milan Winner of WSOP Event #29 for $536,768

Three days of hardcore poker play is over for the guys participating in the World Series of Poker Event #29, $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em, as the Frenchman Pierre Milan took down the tournament, the WSOP bracelet and the massive first prize of $536,768.

A total of 1,165 players participated in the tournament, creating a prize pool of $2,650,375 for the players to battle on about. As the days went by, the players fell out like flies and when day three started only a mere 20 players were left in the tournament. That didn’t last long either and shortly after we were down to nine players and could begin the final table.

On the final table, Milan had good control over the rest of the table and made sure he was never short stacked and thus never really came into problems. Eventually he ended heads up against Justin Oliver, where Milan ran over Oliver and kept accumulating chips, making Oliver short stacked early on in the heads up battle, which only lasted around 10 minutes.

The final hand came in hand #132 of final table play, where Milan moved all-in from the button and received a call from Oliver.
