Most World Series of Poker events last at least three days, and the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Handed event was no different. An impressive number of players showed up to play, and among the 1,604 entrants was Matt Matros, who would emerge the victor, collecting his third WSOP gold bracelet and $454,835 in cash.
After famous players like Kathy Liebert, Viktor Blom and Tristan Wade busted out, Day 3 started with just nine players. Among them was three time bracelet winner Mike Matusow who was 3rd in chips, and Matt Glantz, who final tabled the 2011 WSOP $50,000 Players Championship.
In the end however, the heads-up battle came down to the two short stacks at the start of the day, Matt Matros and Mark Radoja. Matt was looking for bracelet three which would make him the third player in the last 30 years to win a WSOP bracelet in three consecutive years. But Canadian Radoja also had a goal - to win his second bracelet, to go along with the one he won last year in the $5K Shoot-out event.
After less than two hours of heated heads-up play, it was Matt Matros who walked away as the new $1,500 No-Limit Holdem champ. Congratulations Matt!
