Event 32 - Jose Luis Velador WINS!
Yes we have our winner, Jose Luis Velador the man who picks up the much coveted world series of poker bracelet!
He has held a big stack throughout the latter stages of the tournament, never really relinquishing it and finally he holds ALL the chips.
Here's how it happened.
Jose Luis Velador has been putting the pressure on Anthony G Signore, and when Signore found A-6 he was happy to play back, getting all his chips into the middle.
Signore however was going nowhere and flipped over the slightly better A♣ 7♣ !
With two low kickers, a split was a distinct possibility, but that possibility evaporated as the dealer dealt out an Ace and a Seven on the flop to give Velador a dominant two pair.
A blank on the turn left Signore drawing dead, and although he hit a 6 on the river to make aces up himself, it was too little, too late, meaning Anthony G Signore is OUT, eliminated in 2nd, winning $366,387.
And Juis Luis Velador is the champion of this $1,500 NLHE WSOP event, picking up an impressive $573,374 for his troubles, along with the shiny gold WSOP bracelet, and the plaudits of the watching rail.
