A field of 542 joined in the quest for a World Series of Poker Gold Bracelet in Event #42: $5,000 Six-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha. Michael Drummond stood at the top after the last card came off the deck and all the chips were in his corner. He grabbed a payday of $541,747 in his first World Series of Poker event of the summer.

Final table payouts:

1stMichael DrummondUSA$541,747
2ndDarius StuddardUSA$334,593
3rdKory KilpatrickUSA$217,113
4thRyan SchmidtUSA$143,397
5thBrant HaleUSA$95,598
6thPhil LaakUSA$66,918

Drummond stood sixth in chips when 13 players returned to start Day 3 and with 10 players still in the competition, he had the shortest stack.

Once the unofficial final table was reached, Drummond was second in chips and quietly chipped up. His next elimination sent 2014 WSOP bracelet winner Kory Kilpatrick to the rail in third place.

Drummond held a nearly 3:1 chip lead over Darius Studdard when heads-up play began and it took just 12 hands to end the race for the championship.

Hand #115: Michael Drummond button limped and Darius Studdard checked. The dealer put up the {8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{4-Spades} flop.

Studdard led for 160,000 and Drummond set out a raise to 525,000. After a short lull with Studdard thinking it out — beverage cup in hand — he pushed his last 1,485,000 into the middle. Drummond called instantly. The cards were tabled to show:

Studdard: {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds}
Drummond: {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Both players flopped sets!

The {6-Clubs} hit the turn to give Drummond outs to a straight but the river {K-Clubs} ended Studdard's tournament run!

Congratulations Michael!
