Igor Dubinskyy Wins Event #62: The $1,111 Little One for One Drop ($637,539)
The last final table of this summer's World Series of Poker has come to a conclusion. It was Igor Dubinskyy from the Ukraine who emerged victorious after he hit a straight on the river to best Ted Driscoll's trip threes. Dubinskyy, whose best previous cash in a tournament was a 192nd place finish at the 2013 WSOP Main Event, would take home an impressive $637,539 first-place prize as well as his first WSOP bracelet. Driscoll would take comfort in an excellent second-place finish and a nice, tidy sum of $394,281.
The day started with nine players vying for the title that Dubinskyy would eventually claim. Most notable was WSOP bracelet winner Eric "basebaldy" Baldwin who entered the day second in chips. Baldwin would get off to a rough start, sliding down the chip counts early on, but would gain some momentum when he doubled up with pocket kings against Driscoll. He'd eventually find himself short and would move all in with pocket deuces from the small blind at the wrong time as Brandon Eisen woke up with queens in the big blind to eliminate Baldwin in fifth place for $156,532.
Jack Duong would start the day with the chip lead but could never get anything going and would be eliminated in sixth-place for $117,507. Brandon Eisen would be eliminated in shocking fashion when he moved all in with the board showing with and found a call from Driscoll who held . Driscoll had probably been hoping his diamond draw was live but it turned out he could only bust Eisen with a non-diamond king, deuce, or ten. The river would deliver one of those cards to him, the , and a stunned Eisen had to settle for third place and $283,895.
FINAL TABLE RESULTS
A total of 4,496 entrants took part in this event that would see an impressive $499,056 raised for the One Drop charity. After the two starting days, only 885 players would return for the Day 2 action. James McManus, Rep Porter, Ronnie Bardah, Maria Ho and Keven Stammen were just a few of the players failing to advance. The top 468 players would make the money and would hit that point midway through Day 2. By the end of the night, only 102 players remained and Dan Heimiller, Amanda Musumeci, Carlos Mortensen, Shannon Shorr, Matt Glantz, Olivier Busquet, Jared Hamby, Antonio Esfandiari, Justin Young, Will Failla and Humberto Brenes would be among the fallen who would cash, but fail to make it through to Day 3.
Day 3 action saw the field whittled down to the final table of nine players. Falling along the way were many notables including James Woods (93rd - $4,167), Leo Wolpert (84th - $4,936), Tony Cousineau (81st - $5,907), David Paredes (53rd - $10,520), Brett Shaffer (23rd - $19,948), Xiao Peng (18th - $25,087), Michael Tureniec (15th - $31,804) and Kevin Eyster (10th - $40,666).
This concludes our coverage of Event #62 and we thank you for following along. All eyes will now shift to the Main Event where a huge field is expected to turnout on Monday. Tune in to PokerNews for all the exciting Main Event coverage!
