Congratulations to Martin Finger, Winner of Event #21: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed) ($506,764)!
 

2013 WSOP Event 21 Gold Braclet Winner Martin Finger

Another day, another tournament in the books here at the 2013 World Series of Poker. Three days ago, an astounding 806 entrants put up the $3,000 entrance fee to participate in one of the few short-handed no-limit hold'em events offered at the WSOP. After thirty 60-minute levels of poker, it was German professional Martin Finger to grab hold of the title, the bracelet, and the $506,764 in first-place prize money.

Final Table Results

3Matt Berkey$199,733
4David "The Dragon" Pham$131,679
5Nikolai Sears$89,402
6Andrew Dean$62,458

The third day of play began with just 13 players left vying for the title. Among them sat three accomplished professional players who ran into unfortunate enough circumstances to bust before the final table was reached. First, Dan Kelly was the name on everyone's lips as scored his sixth cash at the 2013 WSOP with his deep run in this event. Unfortunately for Kelly, he was unable to secure a spot at the ever-elusive final table. Kelly was eliminated when the inferior ace of Matt Berkey caught up on the flop. Next to hit the rail was eight-time WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel. Finally, the field combined to the unofficial final table of seven when two-time WSOP bracelet winner Nick Schulman was eliminated from play in eighth place.

From here, eventual-winner Finger took the top stack into the unofficial final table. That quickly changed, however, when Matt Stout took most of Andrew Dean's stack in a pocket pair vs. pocket pair confrontation before the flop. Stout took hold of the position of table captain and Dean was eliminated soon after in sixth place. Next to fall was Nikolai Sears, who came into the final table as one of the shorter stacks. Despite a double up and getting it in as a favorite with pocket kings against Berkey's pocket tens, he was on the wrong side of lady luck and was eliminated in fifth place.

David "The Dragon" Pham became the next victim of the final table when he looked up Finger in a massive confrontation. Finger opened with a raise during four-handed play and it folded around to Pham's big blind. Pham moved in and Finger tanked before calling. The two were flipping for Pham's life and in the end it was Finger who came out on top. Berkey fell soon after in third place when he also put his tournament life on the line in a coin-flip situation. This time, it was Stout's ace-king that defeated Berkey's nines to score the knockout.

Stout had a huge chip lead going into heads up play but over the course of the 98-hand match, Finger was able to wear Stout down and overtake the top position. After dozens of raise and take situations, the match finally came to a head when Stout opened with a button raise. Finger came over the top with three-bet and Stout four-bet all in for his tournament life. Finger snapped him off.

The board ran out and Finger's ladies were able to hold as the best hand, securing himself as the next World Series of Poker champion. Stout was eliminated in second-place and had to wait until another day to attain his first WSOP bracelet.
