Steve Gross tops Event #41 $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha/Six Handed

Steve Gross - Event 41 WSOP 2013
Share this

With 400 players buying in for $5,000 in Event #41 Pot Limit Omaha/Six Handed, the prizepool jumped to $1,880,000 with $488,817 of it reserved for first place. Although Steve Gross was well known by "gboro780" in online poker circles, and did have some live score success, he lacked the one major breakthrough — a gold bracelet! That's been remedied.

6Nader Arfai$61,739

Yevgeniy Timoshenko went out in seventh place and bubbled the final table.

When it got down to heads-up Steve Gross and Salman Behbehani went to war but over the next 40 hands Behbehani couldn't overcome Gross' chip advantage and then lost his all-in when he was down to a short stack.

Steve Gross raised to 180,000 from the button, Salman Behbehani thought about it and then announced an all-in for his last 380,000. Gross called.

Behbehani: {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Gross: {10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}

The flop brought the {A-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts} — a direct hit on Gross's seven. The turn was the {5-Diamonds}. The dealer burned a card and put up the river, {2-Spades}, and Steve Gross had his first bracelet win. Congratulations Steve!

Check out Steve's interview with Lynn Gilmartin.
