Jared Hamby took down Event #40 $1,500 No Limit Hold’em after three full days of play by overcoming a big chip deficit heads-up. A field of 2,160 took to the tables and built the prize pool that paid $525,272 for first place and gave Hamby his first WSOP gold.

The last day brought the remaining 22 back and it wasn't long before the final table was decided. Kara Scott fell in 17th place, Peter Hengsakul took out Griffin Benger in a huge hand, and Garry Gates busted in 11th.

Allen Cunningham was in the running for his sixth gold bracelet, but his demise in 10th place set the final table.

1Jared Hamby$525,272
2Peter Hengsakul$325,780
3Allan Vrooman$230,178
4Nicolas Fierro$165,501
5Joao Dorneles Neto$120,574
6Matt Berkey$89,008
7Richard Dubini$66,544
8Fred Berger$50,382
9David Nicholson$38,625

Notables David Nicholson, Matt Berkey, Fred Berger, and Nicolas Fierro all reached the final table but fell short. Like Hamby, Berkey was also making his second final table appearance of the summer.

On the final hand Peter Hengsakul raised to 160,000 and Jared Hamby moved all-in. Hengsakul made the call for his 1,800,000-chip stack.

Hamby: {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Hengsakul: {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

The {4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} hit the flop and Hengsakul was still in the lead, but the {K-Clubs} on the turn sent Hamby's rail into cheers.

The {7-Hearts} on the river sent Hengsakul to the rail in 2nd place for a $325,780 payday and Hamby raced off to his rail for hugs and more.
