Ivan Deyra Wins Event #79: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em for $380,090
Ivan Deyra topped 671 entrants in Event #79: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em to win $380,090 and become the third French bracelet winner of the summer.
Deyra defeated David Gonzalez heads-up but was made to fight for the victory, after Gonzalez had sealed three quick double ups through the Frenchman when just three players remained. However, it nearly wasn't to be for the Winamax pro as he saw his chip stack rapidly reduce during five-handed play only to wake up with pocket queens at the perfect time and hold against pocket nines for the vital double up.
With the win, Deyra crossed the $1,000,000 mark in recorded live earnings, and his gold bracelet performance comes only five years after his first recorded live tournament cash.
''I'm really proud to cross the one million, and that was a goal for me, but the main goal was winning a bracelet," said Deyra just moments after his victory.
"When I was young, I watched the WSOP on tv with stars in my eyes, and now to be here and to win it, it's amazing. It's like a dream!"
The final hand of Event #79 saw Deyra pick off Gonzalez's river bluff, with new bracelet winner holding a full house.
''I thought he was going all in on the river. I was waiting and cheering a little bit inside. He was only six or seven big blinds deep, and I was very confident at this point that I was going to win the bracelet'' added Deyra.
The French rail has been one of the loudest and proudest at final tables this summer and today was no different.
"My rail was amazing. I know these people well because I was in there for three friends before on the final table. It was my dream to be here, and now, my friends were there for me.''

|2||David Gonzalez||United States||$234,882|
|4||Patrick Leonard||United Kingdom||$114,347|

Action of the Day
When the final six returned to battle on Day 4 with eventual runner-up Gonzalez and Canada's Guillaume Nolet dominating the chip counts. David Weinstein had the hardest job sat with ten big blinds, but the American made life difficult for his opponents and held on for over 90-minutes of play before his resilience finally broke.
Weinstein ultimately ran king-queen into pocket queens for his final nine big blinds and departed in sixth place for a career-best $59,421 cash.
As the play continued to be tight and conservative, the average big blinds fell, before back-to-back eliminations occurred.
David Dibernardi hit the rail in fifth place for $81,749 after the American ran king-queen into Deyra's ace-deuce and found no help from the board, and in the very next hand, UK pro Patrick Leonard exited in fourth place for $114,347, and his seventh cash of the series, after his king-jack failed to hold against Deyra's king-nine.
Day 4 chip leader Gonzalez then secured his three quickfire double ups through Deyra, which forced short stack, Guillaume Nolet, to make his move. Deyra put maximum pressure on his opponents by moving all in from the button with pocket sevens, and Nolet put his tournament life on the line after some thought with pocket sixes. Despite Nolet picking up the up-and-down straight draw on the turn, he failed to hit on the river and departed with $162,575 in third place.
Not to be deterred by Gonzalez's earlier comeback, Deyra used his chip advantage well and ultimately became the latest WSOP gold bracelet winner courtesy of Gonzalez's brave all in on the river holding five-deuce of diamonds on an eight-four-four-king-three rainbow board. Deyra snap-called with pocket kings for the full house and the French rail exploded in cheers and applause.
Another event is in the books at the soon to finish 2019 WSOP, but remember to stay tuned to PokerNews over the next four-days with plenty more action left to occur including the crowning of the 2019 Main Event Champion on Tuesday, July 16.
