Share this

The bracelet hunters were ready to make a run through to the finish in Event #27: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. of the 2014 edition of the world's largest poker festival, the World Series of Poker! A prize pool of $1,003,050 was dangling out in front of the 743 players that ponied up the $1,500 buy-in but when all was said and done, Tommy Hang stood alone at the top to take home his first WSOP bracelet and $230,744 in first-place prize money.

Final Table Payouts:

1Tommy Hang$230,744
2Jim Collopy$142,533
3Kristan Lord$96,894
4Brandon Guss$67435
5Joe Villella$47,905
6Chris George$34,725
7Stewart Yancik$25,668
8David "ODB" Baker$19,338

Day 3 found 15 players coming back for the final run at the championship. Notables that fell by the wayside were Dutch Boyd in search of bracelet number three, Adam Friedman looking for bracelet number two, David "ODB" Baker playing for his second bracelet, and other early eliminations that fell just short of the final table included Mark Gallo (15th), Friedman (14th), Jon Turner (13th), Michele Limongi (12th), Boyd (11th), and Lonnie Heimowitz (10th).

Once Heimowitz was ousted, the unofficial final table of nine started. Jared Talarico had the dubious honor of becoming the official final table bubble boy. Then the final table was set and Hang took over.

When it got down to heads-up play, it was Tommy Hang with a large chip advantage over Jim Collopy. Most of Collopy's stack was gobbled up by Hang even though Collopy managed a few comebacks, he was never able to get his chip stack back over one million.

The final hand came down in Hold'Em with Jim Collopy raising from the small blind and Tommy Hang calling from the big blind. The flop came {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts}. Hang checked and Collopy bet. Hang raised, Collopy raised, and Hang called.

The turn brought the {6-Hearts}. Hang checked, Collopy bet leaving only 15,000 in chips for his next bet. Hang called. The river was the {10-Diamonds}! Hang set out 15,000 in chips. Collopy called and turned over {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}.

"I got there!" Hang said as turned over the {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs} for a queen high straight. Hang's rail of J.C. Tran, Chino Rheem, Michael Mizrachi, and Greg Mueller raced to his side to congratulate him.

Congratulations Tommy!
