Poker pro Martin Finger's hopes for a Triple Crown added a second leg when he locked up Event #21 $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed). He battled back for a come-from-behind win in the heads-up arena with Matt Stout. In 2011 Finger won the European Poker Tour Prague Main Event for $964,023 and his first WSOP bracelet win added another $506,764 to his career earnings.

When Day 3 started only 13 of the original field of 906 runners were left. Three of them are professional players and busted just before the final table — Dan Kelly (scored his sixth cash at the 2013 WSOP), eight-time WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel, and Nick Schulman.

Finger took the biggest stack into the unofficial final table but when heads-up play began, Matt Stout, a three-time WSOP finalist, had a huge chip lead over Finger. The battle was on and lasted for 98 hands as Finger climbed back up to reclaim the lead. The last hand found Stout opening with a button raise. Finger raised, and Stout moved all-in. Finger instantly called and the cards were tabled.

Finger: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Stout: {A-Spades}{7-Hearts}

The board hit with the {4-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} and the ladies smiled on Finger to give him a major score in Las Vegas.
