Steve Sung won Event 52 $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed

Steve Sung - Event 52 WSOP 2013
Share this

The $25,000 buy-in Six-Max No Limit Hold’em event started with 175 players. It took only two days to get down to 18 and play kicked off on the final three tables.

The final table was talented — but Steve Sung managed to bring his raw talent to the spotlight and outlast them all, including one of the best players in the world (Phil Galfond). Sung grabbed a seven-figure payday and his second WSOP bracelet in the process.

1Steve Sung$1,205,324
2Phil Galfond$744,841
3Dani Stern$509,473
4Stephen Chidwick$353,780
5Max Lehmanski$249,291
6Richard Lyndaker$353,780

A star-studded field was out in force in this event. Survivors of the first two days were Christian Harder, Marvin Rettenmaier, David “Bakes” Baker, David Benyamine, Jeff Gross, and Shannon Shorr; but none of them made the official final table. Shorr busted in seventh place to set the draw for the official final table — Max Lehmanski, Dani Stern, Richard Lyndaker, Stephen Chidwick, Phil Galfond, and Steve Sung.

Hand #128 sent Galfond home when Sung raised to 240,000, Galfond moved all-in for about 2.24 million, and Sung insta-called.

Galfond: {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Sung: {j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The flop was {k-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{j-Hearts}. Sung held bottom two pair, but Galfond had top pair, an open-ended straight draw, and a backdoor flush draw. The {6-Clubs} on the turn shot the flush draw out into space and it was all over when the {5-Hearts} came on the river.

Steve Sung became a two-time bracelet winner and collected $1,205,324. Congratulations Steve.
