Asi Moshe Event #55 WSOP 2014
Share this

Event #55 of the 2014 World Series of Poker never had a particular winner in mind when 2,396 runners laced up to hit the starting gate. Everyone had the goal of finishing the event with all the chips and taking home a WSOP gold bracelet and the massive $582,321 in prize money. When the smoke cleared and the last card was dealt, it was Asi Moshe that owned the championship for 2014.

Final Table Results:

1Asi Moshe$582,321
2Michael Ferrer$361,207
3Aaron Massey$255,209
4David Jackson$183,498
5Bobby Poe$133,686
6$Henrik Hecklen$98,687
7Marc-Etienne McLaughlin$73,781
8Timothy West$55,861
9Brian Kennedy$42,826

The nine-handed final table was the result of 17 players returning to fight for the gold bracelet on Day 3 — yes...the cash was a big draw too — and it only took a few hours before the final table was set. Georgios Kapalas' fate was to be the final table bubble burster.

It only took six hands for the final hand to determine the winner of Event #55 once it got down to heads-up play.

Hand #180: Michael Ferrer raised to 330,000 and Asi Moshe called. Moshe checked the flop — {q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. Ferrer bet 320,000 and Moshe called. The {3-Hearts} hit the turn and Moshe check-called a bet of 540,000 from Ferrer. The river put up the {4-Clubs} and Moshe bet 1,750,000.

Ferrer shoved all-in and Moshe snap-called. Ferrer tabled {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} for the wheel, but Moshe had a {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Ferrer was gone in second place.

Congratulations Asi!
