Christopher Wallace took home his first gold WSOP bracelet as well as $507,614 in first-place prize money when he bested a field of 200 players in the prestigious Event #22: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship.

The final day started with 21 hopefuls with players like Ben Yu (20th), Daniel Negreanu (18th), Bertrand Grospellier (16th), current WSOP Player of the Year points leader Justin Bonomo (15th), Nick Schulman (14th), David Benyamine (11th), and Nick Kost (10th) knocked out of the competition before the final table was reached.

When the smoke cleared and there were only two left to fight it out for the coveted championship award and gold bracelet, it was Christopher Wallace and Randy Ohel fighting it out with the two players almost dead even in chips.

The final hand of the tournament came down in Stud 8 and it was Randy Ohel who had the bring-in and Christopher Wallace completed. Ohel called. Ohel called a bet on fourth street also. When Wallace bet on fifth street, Ohel raised, and Wallace raised Ohel all in. Ohel called.

When an ace hit Ohel on sixth he jumped ahead but Wallace filled up on the river!
