Davide Suriano Wins Event #40: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Davide Suriano Event #40 WSOP 2014
Share this

Event #40: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship found 25-year-old Davide Suriano outlasting the field of 136 players that gathered to build a prizepool of $1,198,400. Suriano won his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet and $335,553 and also was the only one of the entries that made it through 135 matches with an undefeated record.

Suriano received a bye in the play-in round — he was automatically sent to the round of 128. His opponent in that round was short-stacked Scott Seiver and after finishing off Seiver, his next Round of 64 was against Dan Cates. And so it went, on into Day 2 and victory.

Suriano's path to victory:

Round of 128Scott Seiver
Round of 64Dan Cates
Round of 32Shane Moran
Round of 16Serkan Kurnaz
Round of 8Ankush Mandavia
Round of 4Daniel Colman
FinalsSam Stein

Many thought the heads-up duel would be long — slow — and drawn out. But Suriano never gave up the chip lead and never slowed down. It was over in 36 hands.

Hand #36: Davide Suriano raised to 125,000 and Sam Stein moved all-in for 1,175,000 from the big blind. Suriano thought about it but made the call.

Stein: {K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Suriano: {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The flop was dealt, putting up the {3-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{J-Hearts}. The board completed with the {A-Clubs} turn and {5-Spades} river and Stein's WSOP bracelet dream was over. Suriano's friends went into celebration mode and the seventh bracelet for Italy in World Series of Poker history was going home with Davide Suriano.

"This victory is going to change my life," Suriano told Remko Rinkema after the match.

Congratulations Davide!
