<em>WPT </em>champion <strong>Eugene Katchalov</strong> won his first <em>WSOP </em>bracelet, defeating <strong>Alessio Isaia</strong> heads-up in <em>WSOP </em>Event #5 $1,500 Seven Card Stud. Winner of the $1,500 Limit Holdem event (<em>WSOP </em>#6) is <strong>Harrison Wilder</strong>, who bested <strong>Thomas Jamieson</strong>.
Eight players formed the final table of the WSOP $1,500 Seven Card Stud Event; they clashed for the golden bracelet as well as for the $122,909 first prize. The three favourites had been WPT Venice champion Alessio Isaia, Eugene Katchalov and Eric Buchman, all starting with a solid stack. The setup of the final table was as follows:

With the elimination of Jonathan Spinks in 4th place, it became certain one of the favourites would take the bracelet home; heads-up was imminent at level 23 (3,000/15,000/30,000) after former chipleader Buchman got into a downswing and, ultimately, shoved against Isaia on the 5th street of the following hand:

Buchman: {#}K {#}Q /{#}4 {#}5 {#}8 {#}7 /{#}T
Isaia: {#}Q {#}J /{#}8 {#}J {#}9 {#}T /{#}Q

Isaia won with a straight, accumulating 1,350,000 in chips to counter Katchalov’s 250,000.

The Ukrainian, however, got it all covered: only half an hour into the HU play, he already had the lead and it was not long before the final hand at level 24 (5,000/20,000/40,000), either; Isaia went all-in on the 3rd street:

Isaia: {#}K {#}8 /{#}J {#}T {#}K {#}9 /X
Katchalov: {#}A {#}3 /{#}9 {#}8 {#}5 {#}9 /{#}A

It was played down to the 9-handed final table of the WSOP $1,500 Limit Hold’em Event on its third day; chipleader at level 22 (15,000/30,000) was William Davis, followed by the favourite Scott Clements who was to surprise the first to be railed later on. Davis did not win, either: he finished in 4th place. The initial seating order looked like the following:

Wilder: {#}A {#}2
Jamieson: {#}K {#}T

Board: {#}J {#}Q {#}3 {#}7 {#}2

It took a pair of twos for Wilder to win his first WSOP bracelet ever. The two of them did not meditate long over the result (which can be seen in the chart below) but started celebrating. Well, none of us can blame them.
