$10k Stud - Men Nguyens!
Well, it's been an incredible heads-up and as Men Nguyen did for much of the final, he literally dominated it.
Drinking heavily and clearly the worse for wear, Men still managed to play well enough to guide his way to the bracelet, the last hand being perhaps the most bizarre we have seen in WSOP history.
We've Never Seen Anything Like This
With Brandon Adams reduced to a pittance following a short break and a level increase, Men Nguyen, who had been playing blind and betting relentlessly, threw an offer on the table.
"How bout we get it in now baby. All you can eat baby? You want?"
Adams looked confused but after some consideration agreed. "Ok, but we have to raise each other all-in."
"It ok, we get you all-in," said Nguyen, picking up a huge stack of chips.
"No, you have to raise each other allin," confirmed the tournament director.
So the players went through a strange process of raising each other until a wobbling Men Nguyen just picked up a random number of chips and piled them on the table.
"ALL YOU CAN EAT BABY!" yelled Nguyen, slamming down the chips and staggering backwards, almost falling over to great amusement from the crowd.
He regained his balance and the players flipped for the bracelet!
The dealer rolled out the cards, Adams showing A-3-Q-Q-5-4-9 for a single pair of queens.
Nguyen meanwhile, showed T-6-9-K-J on sixth street. Behind to Adams' pair of queens, Nguyen needed to find himself a queen or king on 7th to win.
He took a peek.
"It's a picture baby!" he bellowed, beckoning the cameras over. He turned it over and slammed down the card - the K♦.
"YESSSSSSS!" exclaimed Nguyen as his supporters rushed over to hug him for collecting his seventh bracelet.
And with incredible scenes going on in the background, that was the tournament over!
Brandon Adams looked disbeleiving, but laughed to himself as he finished up 2nd for $243,958.
Meanwhile Men Nguyen collects the $394,800 for 1st place and perhaps most significantly, his first bracelet since 2003 and seventh in total.
