Jason The Dream : WSOP Day 14 Re-cap

Jason DeWitt
Dewitt was the sole bracelet winner today.

Day 14 of the World Series of Poker was yet another spectacle of action with one bracelet handed out to Jason Dewitt in the $5k No-Limit Hold'em and five other gripping tournaments playing out around it.

The day brought many twists and turns and without further ado - here they are.

Event #17 - $5k NLHE

Mooted as perhaps the toughest WSOP No-Limit Hold'em field in the series so far, the $5k was back in effect with 18 players still in the hunt for the bracelet.

Jeff Williams, David Benefield and Antonio Esfandiari were amongst the big stars returning to play to the bracelet but ultimately it was Jason DeWitt who saw off the heavily-supported Englishman Sam Trickett heads-up to win the bracelet and $818,959 first prize.

"It was the toughest final table I've played in," said DeWitt following his epic win.

Event #18 - $2k Limit

144 Limit aficionados returned for day 2 of the $2k Limit and after a tough day of playing through the streets, the numbers had been whittled neatly down to the ten players who remain in contention to win the bracelet on the final table.

The ten that will return tomorrow include Eric Buchman, who narrowly missed out on a WSOP Limit bracelet in 2006 but will have the chance to rectify that near-miss when they resume at 3 p.m. to play to the bracelet.

Event #19 - $10k 2-7 Championship

72 player returned from the 101 initial starters today and unsurprisingly, by the time they had played their way through the day, just 10 remained

Those ten names still vying for the bracelet have a definite ring of poker celebrity to them - with Erik Seidel, John Juanda, Daniel Negreanu and Andy Bloch numbered amongst them

David Baker is the man they will be chasing when they come back tomorrow to play out for the title

Event #20 - $1.5k PLO

Pot Limit Omaha is a volatile game at the best of times, and in a tournament situation this is more true than ever. 885 players arrived to test their fortunes but 790 of those were to be sent home disappointed with just 95 making it through the day.

Of those Christian Harder, Nenad Medic and Peter Costa are the big guns at the top of the leaderboard, though they will have to continue to run good and play good if they have designs on making the final table when they resume at 2.30 p.m. tommorrow.

Event #21 - $1.5k 7 Card Stud

There were 408 players nursing hopes of a Stud bracelet here, but the majority were left on the rail come the end of the day, just 128 making it through to Day 2.

2008 WSOP NLHE bracelet winner Scott Seiver proved he's not a one trick pony by tearing through the Stud field to lead the chip counts at the close of play.

He's got some way to go before he's the champion but when the remaining studs meet up in the Rio tomorrow, Seiver will be the favorite to take down the bracelet.
