2009 World Series of Poker
Event #9 No Limit Hold'Em/Six Handed
Day 3 -- Final Table
By 1:00 PM, the 18 players were back at the tables to compete for the gold bracelet. Play continued at level 18 which had Pot Limit Hold'Em at $3,000/$6,000 blinds, $6,000 call or make it with $12,000 to $21,000. Pot Limit Omaha was at $2,500/$5,000 blinds, $5,000 call or make it with $10,000 to $17,500. By 2:30 PM, Surinder Sunar busted in 14th place signaling that 5 were gone from the field. Soon after Sunar, Amit Makhija was busted in 13th earning $13,534 and Hevad Khan in 11th place earning $18,170, leaving 10 that could be assembled for final table play.
First to go was Gary Do in 10th taking home $18,170 after losing a round of Hold'Em with pocket K's to Cornel Cimpan who managed to pair his Ace card and beat Do. In 9th was Sigi Stockinger who lost a hand of Omaha to Daniel Makowsky. Also during Omaha, John Kabbaj finished in 8th place as he could not overcome the pair of Aces held by Cornel Cimpan. After dinner break it was Pawel Andrzejewski who busted in 7th place, receiving $32,653 for his efforts. An hour and a half went by before elimination number 6 took place, with Paul Parker taking home close to $40K as the reward. Next to go to the cashier's cage was Daniel Makowsky for a 5th place finish. What happened was that during a round of Hold'Em, chip leader Makowsky took his A J and went all-in preflop and was called by Najib Benanni who held pocket 8's. By the river Bennani had two pair (8's and K's) and over 1 million chips on his side of the table.
In 4th place was Cornel Cimpan who was eliminated by Najib Benanni via a 8 high straight during Omaha. Finishing in 3rd was Ben Grundy defeated by Najib Benanni having two pair (J's and K's) also during Omaha.
At the start of heads up, both players were pretty much even with Najib Benanni having 1,750,000 and Rami Boukai with 1,650,000 in chips. After 30 minutes of Hold'Em play, Boukai raised enough to cover Benanni of which Benanni called. Boukay turned over pocket 9's and Benanni showed J Q. The flop revealed A K Q, turn card a 9 and the river card an A, giving Boukay a full house (9's/A's), a WSOP gold bracelet and the title of champion. A fitting reward after battling for over 14 hours at a final table.
