Doug Polk, Event 23 Winner

Doug Polk won Event #23: $1,000 Turbo No-Limit Hold'em, a World Series of Poker gold bracelet, and $251,969. Polk, perhaps better known as "WCGRider" in the online world, defeated 1,472 runners to claim his first WSOP title.

Before this event, Polk only had four cashes at the WSOP, totaling $78,192. Although Polk has won millions online, he had just over $1,000,000 in career live earnings and his best previous cash was a fourth-place finish earlier this year in the Aussie Millions Main Event for $770,237.

Polk defeated Andy Philachack heads-up to claim the title. On Hand #109, Polk raised to 120,000 and Philachack called from the big blind. The flop came     and both players checked. The turn was the   and Polk bet 155,000 after Philachack checked. Philachack made a minimum raise and Polk made the call.

The river was the   and Philachack moved all in. Doug Polk snap-called while standing up, tabling a straight with   . A dejected Philachack turned over    for turned trip threes, and his tourney run ended in second place.

The final table was headlined by The End Boss, Anthony Gregg. Gregg was eliminated on the 16th hand in sixth place by Andy Philachack.

Gregg raised from under the gun to 40,000 leaving himself with just 5,000 behind. Philachack made the call from the button and Chad Cox called from the big blind.

The flop came    , Cox and Gregg checked to Philachack who bet 50,000. Cox folded and Gregg put the last of his chips in with   , which was well behind Philachack's   . Gregg would pick up some hope with the   on the turn, but the   river would not be the club he needed, and Gregg was eliminated in sixth place for $40,168.

The eliminations came swift and hard as Andrew Mackenzie (9th Place - $17,857), Dash Dudley (8th Place - $23,093), Gianluca Cedolia (7th Place - $30,252) and Gregg were all busted within the first 16 hands. Liam Alcock was the next to go in fifth place earning $54,088. Chad Cox busted in fourth place taking home $73,894, and Jonathan Hanner was the third-place finisher, walking away with $102,503.

Notables making the money were Amanda Baker, who bubbled the final table, Rhys Jones, Nam Le, Christophe De Meulder, Erik Cajelais, Dan Harrington, Jonas Mackoff, Justin Zaki, Griffin Benger, Scott Montgomery, Ryan Riess and Aaron Steury.

The fastest event of the series drew a large field of professionals who could not make the money, including Liv Boeree, Greg Raymer, Loni Harwood, Moshin Charania, Tony Dunst, Vanessa Selbst, Allen Cunnigham, Jonathan Roy, Xuan Liu, Sorel Mizzi, Jason Duval, Ryan Hall, Mark Radoja, Joseph Cheong, Olivier Busquet, Brandon Cantu, Phil Laak, Will Failla and Scott Clements.
