The biggest Limit Hold'em tournament of the 2013 WSOP kicked off with 170 players that posted a $5,000 buy-in looking for gold, glory, and cash. Those players built a prize pool of $799,000 and Michael Moore walked away with the title and over $210,000.

1Michael Moore$211,743
2Gabriel Nassif$130,852
3Ronnie Bardah$94,793
4Brian Aleksa$69,968
5Todd Witteles$52,582
6Dom Denotaristefani$40,205
7Ben Yu$31,264
8Greg Mueller$24,721
9Justin Bonomo$19,863

Day 3 started with 12 players and when the final table was determined, the notable players still in action were: Justin Bonomo, Greg Mueller, Ben Yu, Todd Witteles, Ronnie Bardah, and Gabriel Nassif.

Bardah and Nassif, along with Moore, made it to three-handed play. Nassif took Bardah out in third place to send him home with $94,793, and shifted into heads-up play with a chiplead over Moore — 1.68 million to 870,000. Nassif's lead stood for a bit, but eventually Moore battled back and took over.

Hand #334 marked the end of Nassif — he raised from the button and after numerous raises went in, Nassif went all-in.

Nassif: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}
Moore: {10-Spades}{4-Clubs}

The {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} flop put Nassif ahead but the turned {10-Diamonds} was nothing but trouble...Moore had trips. The {2-Spades} filled in the board and it was over. Nassif was gone in second place for $130,852.

Michal “Big Store” Moore finished 10th in the 1995 WSOP Main Event for $27,680; he now has a gold bracelet and tripled his WSOP career earnings with the first place prize of $211,743. Congratulations Michael!
