After Eric "circleball" Baldwin bubbled in 249th place, the bust outs came at a furious pace and included Ryan "im.sorry" Torgersen (230th - $687.60), Jason "haderade" Somerville (189th - $756.36), Kevin "ImaLuckSac" MacPhee (121st - $962.64), Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu (86th - $1,168.92), Philip "tomte" Yeh (38th - $2,337.84), Blake "shampainpopn" Whittington (24th - $3,506.76), and final table bubble boy Ryan "WHOSYOURDODD" Dodd (10th - $7,013.52).

Lev "Methinks" Milman, who was a chess champion in his younger days, began the final table with a big chip lead, nearly 2:1 over his next closest competitor. James "cbmezz99" Messeroll was the first final table casualty losing ace-six suited to the pocket jacks of Cheatham, and then Milman extended his lead by winning a 10-million chip pot when his pocket tens held against the ace-king of Phillip "AvonB" Rhodes.

Jeremy "http401" Govert exited in seventh place running ace-nine into Marc "Mojoesmarc" Bernal's suited Big Slick, and then Daniel "StayActive" Chan, who began the final table as the short stack, fell after losing with ace-six to the ace-king of Bernal.

Andrea "Andrewbull88" Buonocore hit the rail in fifth place after running pocket sixes into the kings of Bernal, who in turn bowed out in forth losing ten-nine suited to the ace-jack of Cheatham.

Cheatham then got it in on the flop with a flush draw against Milman's trips aces, and a river heart allowed him to double big into the chip lead. Not long after, Milman ran ace-queen suited smack dab into Cheatham's two red aces to fall in third place.

Cheatham took 33.3 million into heads-up play against Julian "Julian" Parmann, who had 12.4 million. Parmann, a professional poker player for the past 14 years with $980,026 in live tournament earnings, put up a good fight, but with the blinds so big, he eventually shoved his last 10 big blinds with ace-trey against "Heezahustla's" ace-deuce. A deuce appeared on the flop and Parmann had to settle for second place, good for $71,648.

WSOP Legend: Doyle Brunson's Final Bracelet, 15 Years Later

Doyle Brunson

At the beginning of the 2005 WSOP, Doyle Brunson remained the co-king of the all-time bracelet count, tied along with Johnny Chan at nine. However, as the series drew toward its close in late June, that was no longer the case — Chan had overtaken him by winning No. 10 to stand atop the mountain alone.

Brunson was already phasing out his tournament play, having cashed precisely zero times that summer and just three times in the previous two combined, although one had resulted in a bracelet victory.

When it came time for Event #31: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed, Brunson dusted off his tournament chops and made a run.
