David Miscikowski Wins Event #49: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em ($719,707)!
 

Event #49 Champion David Miscikowski!

David Miscikowski is a familiar face on the live felt and a familiar name on the virtual felt, but now he has officially cemented his name in World Series of Poker history books by capturing his first gold bracelet. With 11 prior WSOP cashes on his record, this marked Miscikowski's first final table and he certainly made it one to remember.

When the final table began on Friday, Miscikowski held the chip lead with about 20% of the chips in play. He sat back as Blake Bohn and John Dolan exited in ninth and eighth place, respectively, then added to his own stack by eliminating Jean Gaspard in seventh place.

Kevin MacPhee was the next to fall and he was followed to the rail by Oliver Price in fifth place. By this point, Miscikowski had surrendered the chip lead to Norbert Szecsi. Day 3 chip leader Margareta Morris busted in fourth place and after Manig Loeser departed in third place, the stage was set for a heads-up duel between Miscikowski and Szecsi and it was fitting, since the chip lead was never held by anybody else.

The two battled for nearly three hours, but it wasn't enough to crown a champion before the players were required to bag and tag for the night. They returned Saturday to close it out and for the first level, it was Szecsi who held the upper hand. However, a break after Level 32 seemed to be just what the doctor ordered for Miscikowski. He trailed slightly at the start of Level 32, but two hands later the tournament was over and all of the chips were in front of him.

On the final hand, Szecsi shoved on the button for about 24 big blinds with   . Miscikowski called from the big blind with    and help up to secure the victory.
