Congratulations to Pat Walsh, Winner of Event #64: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship ($923,379)
 

PEvent #64 Champion Pat Walsh

Event #64: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship began two days ago with 418 entrants putting up $10,000, the last big buy-in event preceding the Main Event. After 29 one-hour levels, only one player was left standing. Pat Walsh (St. Charles, MO) topped the field and earned his first World Series of Poker bracelet to go along with the first-place prize of $923,379.

Walsh found himself near the top of the chip counts throughout the tournament. When Day 1 concluded, he was 16th in chips out of the remaining 132 players. After 10 more levels on Day 2, Walsh sat third in chips with 23 players remaining. His Day 3 path to the final table was relatively easy as by the time the final two tables were reached, Walsh held the chip lead. He continued chipping up from there, eliminating Daniel Hood in 15th place and scoring a massive double elimination, sending Tom Marchese and Alex Kravchenko to the rail in 11th and 10th place, respectively.

From there, Walsh held onto the chip lead for the entire final table until Javed Abrahams gave him a run for his money in the heads-up duel. Abrahams took the chip lead briefly and had a chance to close it out. Walsh got his chips in after the flop with the nut straight, but was an underdog to survive. However, Abrahams missed his many outs to close it out and 18 hands later Walsh emerged victorious.
