Congratulations to Jan-Peter Jachtmann, Winner of the 2012 WSOP Event #39 $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha ($661,000)
 

Jan-Peter Jachtmann

The 2012 World Series of Poker continued on Saturday with the third and final day of Event 39: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. What started with 293 players was down to the final 13 at the start of the day, each looking to take down the $661,000 first-place prize. It took less than six hours to determine a winner, and that man was Germany's Jan-Peter Jachtmann.

At the start of the day, all eyes were on Andrew Brown, who began as the dominating chip leader and was looking to capture his second bracelet. He put his chips to good use, and after John Kabbaj hit the rail in 13th place, Brown scored a knockout when he managed to make two pair with      on a     pot against the      of Adam Kornuth. A   on the turn and   river kept Brown in the lead and sent Kornuth home in 12th place.

13thJohn Kabbaj$33,794

From there, PLO veterans Sammy Farha and Ville Wahlbeck were sent to the payout desk in 11th and 10th place respectively, before Joe Kusher followed them out in ninth place. Kushner's deep run was due in part to a crazy hand he won on Day 1 where he eliminated four opponents!

Not long after, a short-stacked Jason Mericer was all in preflop with the      against the      for Micah Smith.

The     flop gave Mercier the lead with two pair. The turn was the   and then the river counterfeited Mercier when the   hit. Smith's king and nines won the pot and sent the two-time gold bracelet winner to the rail in eighth place for $72,132.

Brown was back at it in Level 23 when he raised to 58,000 from the cutoff seat and Benjamin Sage potted it from the button. Brown reraised and Sage called all in for approximately 310,000.

Sage:     
Brown:     

The flop, turn and river ran out       and Brown's three aces won the pot. Sage finished in sixth place and earned nearly $125,000.

In Level 24, Brown raised to 65,000 from the cutoff, Andy Seth potted from the button to 240,000. Brown made the call and then led out for a pot-sized bet on the     flop. Seth decided it was time and moved all in for right around 530,000, and Brown made the call.

Showdown
Seth:     
Brown:     

Seth was ahead with kings when the chips went in, but the   turn delivered Brown two pair. Much to Seth's dismay, the   river would give his opponent a full house and send him to the payout desk in fifth place, good for $165,665.

Next to go was a short-stacked Smith, who raised to 105,000 from the cutoff and received a call from Jachtmann. The     flop saw Jachtmann lead out and Smith called off his remaining 115,000.

Showdown
Smith:     
Jachtmann:     

Smith was ahead with two pair, but the   turn counterfeited him by giving Jachtmann jacks and deuces. The   river was of no consequence and Smith took his leave in fourth place.

Brown scored another elimination when he limped in the small blind and Steven Silverman exercised his option in the big with a raise to 90,000. Brown called and then checked the    flop, prompting Silverman to bet 125,000. Brown immediately announced a pot-sized raise, and Silverman called off for right around 540,000.

Showdown
Brown:     
Silverman:     

Brown had flopped a pair of eights with a flush draw, while Silverman held a pair of queens, a wrap, and an inferior flush draw. With draws abound, it was a bit surprising that it'd be the   on the turn that would give Brown the lead. Even so, Silverman still had plenty of outs to stay alive on the river. Unfortunately for him, the   was not one of them.

Heads-up play began with Jachtmann holding 4.94 million to Brown's 3.85 million. While the chip counts were close, it didn't take long to determine a winner. The final hand came when Brown raised to 80,000 from the button and Jachtmann made the call. The     flop saw Jachtmann check, opening the door for Brown to fire out 160,000. Jachtmann then woke up with a check-raise to 640,000, Brown called, and the   rolled off on the turn.

Jachtmann led out for 1.1 million and then called when Brown moved all in.

Showdown
Brown:     
Jachtmann:     

Brown was ahead with top set, but Jachtmann held a wrap. Brown also held a flush draw which detracted from Jachtmann's outs, but it was for naught as the   spiked on the river to give the man from Germany the straight. With that, Brown was denied his second WSOP bracelet and dispatched in second place, good for $408,393.
