With 122 entries in the $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship, all fighting their way to the final table with their sights set on taking down first place, only one would end up claiming the $303,909 prize money and a gold bracelet! David Olson stood at the top after three days of a hard fought battle when he sent Mikail Tulchinskiy to the rail after a two hour heads-up war that shot the chip lead back and forth a number of times.

Final Table Results:

1David OlsonUnited States$303,909
2Mikail TulchinskiyRussia187,811
3Greg DeboraCanada$136,056
4Samuel GolbuffUnited States$100,425

6Bill ChenUnited States$57,706
7Brian TateUnited States$44,874
8Jan SjavikNorway$35,481
9Gabriel NassifFrance$28,509

Ten players took to the tables on Day 3 and Robert Como hit the rail first to set the final table. The others were off and running with a clear shot ahead — straight to the number one spot! The problem? Each player was facing eight obstacles and each had to be sent to the rail before the celebration could begin. Finally, all the obstacles but one were cleared from the playing field as Mikail Tulchinskiy and David Olson faced each other.

A raising war started preflop and Mikail Tulchinskiy was all-in for his tournament life — approximately 230,000 chips. The cards were tabled to show Tulchinskiy holding the {K-Clubs}{6-Clubs} to Olson's {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

The board came {9-Spades}{7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{2-Spades} to give David Olson a gold bracelet, a massive prize pool of $303,909, and the championship bragging rights.

Congratulations David!
