Jason Duval Wins Event #28: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em ($521,202)
 

Jason Duval - 1st Place.

After about two hours of heads-up play, Jason Duval defeated Majid Yahyaei on this hand, when Yahyaei, perhaps sensing his opponent held a flush draw, called off his stack with queen-high. Unfortunately for Yahyaei, his opponent had a queen-high flush draw with a higher kicker, and Yahyaei didn't improve.

Duval claimed the World Series of Poker gold bracelet and more than half a million dollars in prize money after outlasting a field of 2,115, while Yahyaei's consolation prize was $324,442. Duval, who recorded his second career six-figure cash after placing third in a WPT event for just under $200,000 this spring, pulled off the rare feat of winning a tournament after being the Day 1 chipleader.

Sixteen players survived to Day 3, and the biggest name by far was TJ Cloutier, who fell short of his 40th career WSOP final table when he busted in 13th. Pace of play was fast, as it took just over three hours for the field to be whittled down to the final table. Once there, well-known online player Dan "Wretchy" Martin busted in sixth shortly after being crippled by a huge two-outer courtesy of Day 2 chipleader Masayuki Nagata. Nagata wound up finishing third.
