2007 WSOP Event #13: $5,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em World Championship

WSOP, 2007-06-11, by Ozone

The pot-limit hold'em world championship attracted 398 entrants resulting in a scheduled first place payout of $487,000. With two tables left, several familiar faces were still in the hunt for the title of pot-limit hold'em world champion. Some of these players, such as Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Eric "Rizen" Lynch, Scott Fischman, and Joe Sebok, busted out of the tournament before reaching the final table.

Young poker pro Allen Cunningham overcame the tough field to become the third youngest player to win his fifth career bracelet. Phil Ivey was the fastest, followed by Phil Hellmuth. Ivey is still sits on five career bracelets. Hellmuth has ten bracelets, but is second in chips going to the final table of Event #15.

Some of the notables who stood in Cunningham's way to number five were Jeff Lisandro (2nd - $294,000), Humberto Brenes (3rd - $197,000), last year's champion Jason Lester (4th - $132,000), and Gavin Griffin (7th - $58,000).
