Asi Moshe Wins Event #55: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em ($582,321)
 

Winner of Event 55: Asi Moshe

Ladies and gentlemen, the 55th event of the 2014 World Series of Poker has crowned its champion and that champion is none other than Asi Moshe, who is now the proud owner of a WSOP gold bracelet and a wallet-bursting $582,321 in prize money.

The final day's play began with 17 players in contention for the title, but even before two hour-long levels were completed the final table of nine was reached.

Bernado Dias was the first to fall and he was followed to the sidelines by Robert Allen, Nicholas Nowak, James Dorrance, David Quang, Paul Balzano, Jonathan Andero, and Georgios Kapalas, with the latter bursting the final table bubble.

It took 43 hands of play at the final table for the first player to be eliminated, that unwanted title going to Brian Kennedy who ran his    into Aaron Massey's    and couldn't improve.

One hand later, Tim West shoved all in with the    and David Jackson called with the dominating    and proceeded to flop trip aces to send the vocal West to the sidelines.

Another 30 hands played out before the former November Nine member Marc-Etienne McLaughlin finally ran out of luck. McLaughlin had seen his stack yo-yo throughout te day and looked set to double with his    when Massey called his all-in bet with the inferior   . However, Massey spiked a queen on the turn and McLaughlin couldn't find an ace on the river and his tournament ended in seventh place.

Sixth place went to Denmark's Henrik Hecklen, who three-bet over a Moshe raise with the    and Moshe called with the   . The five community cards were void of drama and the tournament was left with only five players, each guaranteed a six-figure payday.

Five became four with the exit of Bobby Poe, who also fell victim to Massey. Massey raised, Poe three-bet all in with the    and Massey called with the    and then spiked a queen on the river to send Poe home in fifth place.

Next to fall was the start-of-day chip leader David Jackson in somewhat of a cooler spot. Jackson and Moshe had battled a few times during the final table, but the following hand would be the last time they would do that.

Moshe raised to 100,000 from the button and Jackson three-bet to 360,000 from the small blind. Massey called from the big blind and Moshe four-bet to 955,000. Jackson thought for a moment and then moved all in for 2,855,000. After Massey folded, Moshe quickly called and tabled the    versus the    of Jackson.

The board ran out       and Moshe made a huge double up as he had Jackson covered by just 50,000. Jackson graciously shook hands with his former table mates and exited the tournament area.

Moshe then sent the popular and well-supported Massey to the rail, again in a hand that essentially played itself.

Moshe raised, Massey three-bet and then called Moshe's shove. Massey turned over the    and was in bad shape against the    of his opponent. Massey flopped a set, but so did Moshe and when the turn and river bricked off, it was game over for Massey.

Heads-up play lasted for six hands with the final hand being the 180th of the final table.

Ferrer raised to 330,000 and Asi Moshe made the call. The flop was     and Moshe checked. Ferrer bet 320,000 and Moshe called. The   came on the turn and Moshe check-called a bet of 540,000 from Ferrer. The river was the   and Moshe led for 1,750,000.

Ferrer moved all in and Moshe snap-called. Ferrer tabled the    for the wheel, but Moshe tabled    for the higher straight and Ferrer exited in second place.

So there you have it, Asi Moshe is the latest poker player to win the most sought after piece of poker jewelry and will be forever remembered in the WSOP's history books.

Aaron Massey on the Verge of Accomplishing His Dream
 

Aaron Massey

Before poker became the stomping ground of celebrities known more for pimping patches than playing cards, the glamorous game seen on television today was an underworld affair where hustlers plied their trade behind closed doors. And while knowing the odds and reading one's man made poker more than a mere gamble for the best in the business, the long arm of the law and short-tempered suckers packing pistols made that hustle a harrowing experience nonetheless. Most players today consider the rough and tumble days of the Texas road gambler to be nothing but a bygone era in poker history, but for brothers Aaron and Ralph Massey, becoming poker pros was only natural. After all, hustling is in their blood...

...

Aaron made good on another promise as well, three years after boldly telling PokerNews that he would one day become a "poker star." Named as one of seven "Ones to Watch" for Season XII of the WPT, Aaron was tabbed as one of poker's up-and-coming young guns, with the spotlight he has sought since becoming a pro finally focused where he always believed it belonged. And although Aaron's run through Season XII failed to deliver any significant results, he has already moved on to set his sights on another goal: Snagging his first WSOP bracelet this summer...

You can read the rest of Aaron's story from the streets to the World Series of Poker spotlight here.
