Salman Jaddi Event #60 WSOP 2014
Share this

Event #60: No Limit Hold'em brought 2,563 players to the tables at the Rio. Those players were shooting at a $3,460,050 prize pool and knowing that the world's biggest poker festival is winding down for another year may have had something to do with the urgency to take home first place and that ever elusive World Series of Poker gold bracelet. After an almost five-hour heads-up match, Salman Jaddi stood with all the chips which he promptly traded in for the $614,248 first-place money and his first WSOP bracelet.

A three-day event turned into a four-day event and along the way some of the notables that made the money were Jared Hamby, Keven Stammen, Will Failla, Matt Stout, Byron Kaverman, John Racener, Ravi Raghavan, Lauren Kling, Shannon Shorr, Tony Dunst, Kyle Cartwright, Alex Bolotin, David Peters, Layne Flack, Joe Tehan, Scott Baumstein, and Dutch Boyd. There were other notables left behind along the trail of busted flushes, one-card outs, and cracked sets that didn't make the money: Phil Hellmuth, Ole Schemion, Ryan Hall, Mark Hoke, Amanda Baker, Nick Abou Risk, Sofia Lovgren, Victor Ramdin, Max Steinberg, Dominik Nitsche, Samuel Chartier, Yann Dion, and Marc-Andre Ladouceur.

"I didn't want to say 'one time' out loud, but that's what I was thinking," Jaddi said! "I feel like I played awesome heads-up. Get lucky along the way sometimes. That's how it goes."

Hand #371: Brandon Hall open-shoved all-in and Salman jaddi made the call. Hall's tournament life was on the line.

Jaddi: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Hall: {a-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}

The flop brought the {k-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Both Hall and Jaddi were standing as the board ran out with the {2-Hearts} turn and the {6-Hearts} river. Jaddi's flush became a gold bracelet reality.

Jaddi's last words: "I'm a business owner, not a pro. I play for fun. Anyone has a shot to win this thing. I didn't play many hands, but somehow I ended up here. If I can do it, anyone can."

Congratulations Salman!
