Event #12 kicked off with 535 players lining up to play $1,500 Pot Limit Hold'em and after a little over 25 levels, one had all the chips. Lev Rofman made it all the way to the top of the field to take home gold and a first place prize of $166,136.

Rofman sat out most of the early action after entering the final table fifth in chips. Jean-Nicolas Fortin busted in ninth place and fed his short stack to chip leader Eric Crain. Tim Reilly then went bust in eighth place.

Rofman managed a key double up against Jaspal Brar and then took Nicolas Halvorson out of action in seventh place. Eric Crain hit the downside after running into Anthony Harb's pocket aces — twice, Crain found himself on a short stack and then went broke in sixth place to Allen Cunningham.

Anthony Harb had the misfortune of hitting Rofman's aces head-on to leave in fifth place and next out was fourth place finisher Kenneth Shelton. Third place went to Jaspal Brar courtesy of Cunningham which sent him into heads-up play with a solid 2.4:1 chip lead.

The final hand: Allen Cunningham called and Lev Rofman raised it 120,000. Cunningham called to see a flop of {9-Spades}{j-Spades}{5-Spades}.

Rofman bet 240,000, Cunningham moved all-in for around 775,000, and Rofman called.

Cunningham: {k-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Rofman: {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

Rofman was out in front though both had flush draws and king high. The {7-Clubs} turned; an eight, six, or spade would give Cunningham the win. The river {q-Hearts} sent Allen Cunningham home in second place with $102,819 and Lev Rofman stayed to claim his gold bracelet and $166,136!
