Brian Yoon - Event 58 WSOP 2013

The first ever Little One for One Drop is a done deal, and it took four days at the tables to reach the last man standing — Brian Yoon — who survived a field of 4,756 players to score a first place prize of $663,727 and his first WSOP gold bracelet.

There was a great turnout for this new event — so great, an unplanned fourth day of play was added to the schedule.

This charity event followed the $111,111 One Drop High Roller Event #47. Each entry in the Little One for One Drop found $111 donated to the One Drop Foundation, a charity dedicated to improving global access to clean water. This event brought $527,916 to the cause. The One Drop High Roller event added $553,278 more. A great gathering found the World Series wracking up over $1 million for the foundation.

Hand #118 put the bracelet on Yoon's wrist: Cuong Van Nguyen raised to 450,000, and Brian Yoon moved all-in. Van Nguyen called for about 3 million.

Van Nguyen: {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Yoon: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

The flop hit with the {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and Yoon was behind and in danger of being in a heads-up match, evenly stacked. The turn brought the {9-Spades} and one of Van Nguyen's rail birds yelled for a seven but the {k-Hearts} rolled off and that was all it took.

Congratulations Brian!
