Brian Yoon Wins Event #58: $1,111 Little One for One Drop ($663,727)
 

Brian Yoon

After just three hours of play here on Day 4 of Event #58: $1,111 Little One for One Drop, Brian Yoon has defeated seven other competitors to take down the gold bracelet and $663,727 in prize money. He just knocked out Cuong Van Nguyen on the 11th hand of heads up. Van Nguyen will have to console himself with $408,624.

Player wasted no time jamming chips into the middle to start the day, when Van Nguyen doubled through Alex Case on the very first hand. Case was eliminated a short time later. Kevin O'Donnell followed just a few hands later in seventh. Joe Morneau busted sixth when he couldn't hold off Yoon's draw.

Yoon jammed another draw a short time later, this time against Day 3 chipleader Nghi Tran. He spiked his straight on the turn, propelling him to a dominating stack. A crippled Tran busted a short time later.

The players sparred four-handed for awhile before Yoon claimed another victim, ousting Justin Zaki in a flip. Roland Israelashvili fell the very next hand in third, leading to the short heads-up battle.

Yoon's win triples his career live tournament earnings. Thanks for tuning in to our One Drop coverage, and congratulations to Brian Yoon. Don't forget to jet on over to the live reporting for the Main Event.
