On the 16th June we saw the start of Event 27 at The World Series of Poker 2007 playing No Limit Hold’em. The $1,500 buy-in event attracted 2,315 players, creating a total prize pool of $3,159,975 paying 198 players. To win this event players would have to battle through three day’s of play, with the 9 seat final table to be contested on the third and final day.

Seth Weinger headed the chip rankings at the start of day three on $1.7 million in chips, not too far ahead of second placed David Woo on 1.1 million. Luis Sanchez was the man under pressure on the short stack with $116,000 needing to make a good start to have a shot at the top prize on offer.

Final Table Chip Rankings:

  • 1st Seth Weinger $1,715,000
  • 2nd David Woo $1,170,000
  • 3rd David Stucke $975,000
  • 4th Young Cho $933,000
  • 5th Noam Freedman $847,000
  • 6th Michael Ium $382,000
  • 7th Tom Dobrilovic $260,000
  • 8th Thai Ton $224,000
  • 9th Luis Sanchez $116,000

It was on the very first hand on this final we lost the first player Thai Ton, moving All in with :ac :6c against Seth Weinger calling with :kd :qd Weinger hit a King on the Turn and Ton missed the board completely going out in 9th place.

Only two hands later Louis Sanchez on the short stack moved All In on the small blind with :jh :7h He ran into David Woo on the big blind holding :as :kh who called. Sanchez needed help but didn’t get it with the first card coming down with an Ace and went out of the tournament in 8th place, with the final board showing :ad :10c :2s :ah :qh

Tom Dobrilovic made a good start collecting some sizeable pots taking himself off the short stack until the 19th hand of play. Dobrilovic called an All In move from Young Cho and found his pocket Sevens dominated by pocket Tens. The Tens held up crippling Dobrilovic down to his last few chips. The very next hand he moved All In under the gun with :kh :10d and Cho, Weinger and Michael Ium all called to see the Flop. This came down :as :4s :4c which was followed by a bet by Cho, Weinger calls and Ium folds. The Turn came down :8d and both players checked, the :3h on the River was checked too and Cho reveals :ad :7d to take the pot after Weinger mucks his cards. Dobrilovic went out in 7th place winning $63,200.

Play settled down from this point and we didn’t see any real action until around the 40th hand of play. Noam Freedman moved All In holding :10s :8c with the Flop coming down :10h :6d :3d this was called by Seth Weinger with :qs :10c in a dominating position. The :7h on the Turn and :js on the River confirmed Freedman’s exit of the tournament in 6th place winning $83,739.

It was David Woo’s turn to go next when his pocket Jacks ran into Michael Ium with pocket Aces. The Aces held up with the board coming down :4h :4s :2c :ks :2h knocking Woo out in 5th place taking home $115,339.

Seth Weinger was in a very good position leading the chip rankings on 3 million in chips followed by Michael Ium on 2.5 million. Both Dave Stucke and Young Cho had some catching up to do with only around the $600,000 mark.

Both short stacks made a good come back getting back level in chips with the chip leaders, before knocking Michael Ium out of the tournament who now found himself on the short stack. His last stand All In move was called by both Dave Stucke and Seth Weinger. The Flop came down :js :9d :8c and Cho folds to Weinger’s bet leaving Ium and Weinger to showdown. Ium found his :js :5d almost drawing dead against Weinger with :jh :8d needing two fives to take the pot. Ium headed for the rail after the :7c and :as came down on the Turn and River going out in 4th place taking $164,319 in prize money.

It wasn’t long after we were down to heads up when Dave Stucke hit a flush on the Turn after calling an All In move from Seth Weinger with only King high after the Flop. This pot gave Stucke a big chip lead with 5.6million in chips, third place gave Weinger $246,478.

The tournament was all over just after four hands of heads up play. Young Cho moved All In with :jd :3h and was called by Stucke with pocket Sevens. The board came down :qs :10d :5d :as :8d giving Stucke the win taking home the massive $603,069 1st place prize and the coveted WSOP bracelet.
