The 2014 World Series of Poker Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em has an interesting note of trivia attached to the championship. The 2013 WSOP Event #38 $2,500 No Limit Hold'em Four Handed was won by Justin Oliver who promptly gave up his gold bracelet to his dad for Fathers Day. The event in the spotlight today found Pierre Milan topping a field of 1,165 players and the runner-up was none other than Justin Oliver who was denied his gold bracelet on Fathers Day by Milan.

Twenty players returned to Day 3 action and once Richard Kirsch opened the flood gates to the cashier, 10 other players were right behind him: William Reynolds (19th - $16,220), Rep Porter (18th - $19,718), Joseph Brattole (17th - $19,718), Justin Kindred (16th - $19,718), Marius Pospiech (15th - $24,277), Grayson Nichols (14th - $24,277), Yong Lu (13th - $24,277), Scott Davies (12th - $30,267), Chris Johnson (11th - $30,267), and David Benefield (10th - $30,267).

After a dinner break and seven more eliminations, Justin Oliver and Pierre Milan were almost even in chips and ready to rumble for a gold bracelet and massive prize pool!

Even though the chipstacks were close, the tournament was over within three hands. The second hand of heads-up produced a big pot that went to Milan.

On the very next hand — Hand #132 — Pierre Milan pushed all-in from the button and Justin Oliver got the rest of his chips in good from the big blind.

Milan: {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Oliver: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

The board produced the {10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} to give Milan the win.

Congratulations Pierre!
