Event #64: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship hit the green felt running with 418 gold-bracelet-hopefuls that ponied up $10,000. This event was the final big buy-in event on the series schedule...excluding the main event. Pat Walsh made it through the field to take home his first World Series of Poker bracelet and the massive first-place prize of $923,379.

Final Table Payouts

Walsh was never far from the top of the chip counts on all three days of play and Day 3 had him holding the chip lead when the final two tables were reached. Tom Marchese and Alex Kravchenko hit the rail in 11th and 10th place, respectively, when Walsh scored a huge double elimination. His chip lead held throughout the final table and was only in jeopardy once during the heads-up battle with Javed Abrahams but Walsh's straight managed to hold and Abrahams missed all of his outs to end it. Then, only 18 hands later, Walsh took it down.

Hand #164: Pat Walsh button limped, Javed Abrahams checked and the dealer put up the {J-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

Abrahams checked, Walsh bet 200,000, and Abrahams raised the pot to 600,000. Walsh reraised and Abrahams called all-in for about 1.9 million.

Abrahams: {10-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Walsh: {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}

Walsh had pairs while Abrahams had the top half of a wrap. The {8-Hearts} turn and the {8-Clubs} river were the end of Abrahams gold bracelet quest and both players shook hands.

Congratulations Pat!
