William "SlaweelRyam" Romaine Scores WSOP Gold in Event #10: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout ($79,753)

William Romaine

It took just under eleven hours for William "SlaweelRyam" Romaine to overcome a 153-player field and claim his second World Series of Poker gold bracelet in Online Event #10: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout. Romaine defeated Matthew "booyastink" Wantman heads-up and took home $79,753 for his efforts.

Romaine is a regular grinder and has already cashed in four events this series for just over $9,000. Today's victory marks a top-five biggest online score for Romaine, who will add to his $237,563 in previous tournament earnings.

Many notables joined the field throughout the day. Some who participated but could not find the run good magic included Eric "powwow" Ethans, Jeff "NedrudRelyt" Madsen, and unfortunate bubble-boy Jared "jstrizza" Strauss. A few big names who made a deep run but could not find the final table included Ben "WhyIsGamora" Yu (30th - $4,055), 2012 Main Event Champion Greg "DustedYou" Merson (25th - $4,055), and Katie "katelin" Lindsay (14th - $4,161).

Final Table Action

It took just over nine hours to get to an eight-handed final table and with the average stack being over 25 big blinds it started off fairly slow. The first elimination came roughly 45 minutes after the final table was set. Tony "Panoramic" Dunst moved all in from the small blind with queen-six and was called by Minh "Bow2Me" Nguyen with king-seven. Dunst couldn't find any help and was eliminated in eighth place.

With the stacks becoming shorter, Jeremiah "freestylerr" Williams found himself with less than one big blind after losing with pocket aces against ace-queen and was forced all in with seven-four against the ten-nine of Nguyen and sent to the rail in seventh place.

One hand later Jason "Jaybangs" Obinger picked up king-nine suited in the small blind and moved all in but was snap-called by the ace-king for Wantman and was sent to the exit in sixth place.

Michael "BrockLesnar" Holtz found himself in great shape preflop when he moved in with pocket eights against the red fours for Nguyen but when the board ran out four hearts it was the end of the road for Holtz who was eliminated in fifth place.

Shortly after a double-elimination happened when Stanley "stanman420" Lee was left with only two big blinds and picked up queen-ten to move all in. Romaine moved all in with queen-two, well covering the rest of the table, and Nguyen picked up a monster second in chips and called it off with ace-king. The board ran out with a two and both Lee and Nguyen were eliminated in fourth and third place.

Heads-up began with a staggering 20-1 chip lead for Romaine and would end after a couple hands. Romaine moved in with nine-seven and was called by Wantman with queen-six. The river brought a seven for Romaine and Wantman would have to settle for a runner-up finish. Romaine took down the event and locked up his second WSOP bracelet.

You Won't Believe How Doug Polk Lost This Pot After Flopping Jacks Full!
Doug Polk
Doug Polk

On Friday, The Lodge Live stream in Texas had an exciting show with co-owner Doug Polk and the newest World Poker Tour champion Corey Wade at the table. After the cameras stopped rolling, the Upswing Poker founder lost quite a memorable bad beat that he'd probably just like to forget.

During the five-hour stream, which you can view on The Lodge's YouTube channel, Polk lost $28,000. Wade, who won the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Main Event last week for $471,686, bought in for $100,000 and was the biggest winner, taking home a profit of $48,000.

Shortly after the stream concluded, Polk played a hang against a player named "Boston Jimmy" that was quite cruel. Well, not so much for Jimmy.
