Lev Rofman Wins Event #12: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em ($166,136)
 

Lev Rofman - WSOP Bracelet Winner!

Event #12, the $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em, began with 535 players. After 25 levels and change, only one was left standing. Lev Rofman emerged victorious, topping the field for a first-place prize of $166,136.

Rofman began the final table fifth in chips and took a back seat to much of the early action. Short stack Jean-Nicolas Fortin busted in ninth place to chip leader Eric Crain and that was followed by Tim Reilly's elimination in eighth place.

Rofman found a key double up against Jaspal Brar before eliminating Nicolas Halvorson in seventh place. Despite starting the final table as chip leader, it was not meant to be for Eric Crain. After running into Anthony Harb's pocket aces twice, Crain found himself on a short stack and busted in sixth place to Allen Cunningham.

Anthony Harb ran into Rofman's aces to depart in fifth place, and that was followed by Kenneth Shelton's elimination in fourth place. Cunningham took care of Jaspal Brar in third place, giving him a solid 2.4:1 chip lead entering heads-up play.

Rofman fought back and closed the gap before Cunningham extended it again. Cunningham would find himself with not one, but two chances to win the bracelet. However, Rofman doubled up both times before sealing the deal on his first attempt as the bigger stack.

We hope you enjoyed our hand-for-hand coverage of this final table, and urge you to follow our coverage for the remainder of the summer as more bracelets are awarded. For now, good night from Las Vegas!
