Share this

Six levels of play on Day 3 and a fourth place finish in Event #33 may just be the recipe for success in Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em! Out of the 11 players that returned to finish off the tournament, only one could claim both of the feats listed in the first sentence — Will Givens!

Givens took home a payday of $306,634 and a coveted WSOP gold bracelet after defeating start-of-day chip leader Angela Prada-Moed heads-up!

Final Results:

1Will Givens$306,634
2Angela Prada-Moed$189,632
3Paul Sokoloff$131,110
4David Hass$94,559
5Patrick Curzio$69,125
6Duy Ho$51,198
7Dmitrii Shchepkin$38,423
8Ivan Saul$29,211
9Loren Klein$22,484

The event brought 1,841 players to the tables to grow a prizepool of $1,656,900 and each one had a dream of taking home the top prize that lay waiting down the road three days ahead. The procession started strong and one by one they fell until there were only two.

When the heads-up duel started, Prada-Moed was never able to take back the lead even after three double ups. On the fourth attempt to double up Will Givens raised to 100,000 and Angela Prada-Moed called. The flop brought the {J-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. Prada-Moed shoved all-in and Givens thought about it and then called.

Prada-Moed: {Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Givens: {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}

A flush draw and a queen were the nightmare tickets that Givens had to outrun to take down the title and when the {A-Diamonds} hit the turn followed by the {6-Hearts} on the river, Givens picked up his first gold bracelet. His rail went crazy.

Congratulations Will!
