2014 WSOP Event #19 $1.5K No-Limit Hold'em

by Joseph Smith Sr.

The best poker player I knew growing up was an uncle that never had a job but always had money.  He's the one that gave me a deck of cards for my 6th birthday and said they were my retirement account.  He called Houston home and told me there was two things all Texans did, play football and poker.

I don't know if Houstonian Ted Gillis plays football, but he certainly does play poker and proved his prowess for the game when he defeated a field of 2086 players in Event #19 at the 2014 WSOP.  Gillis collected the winner's share of $514,027 and his first WSOP gold bracelet.

With only one WSOP cash, 2013 $1,500 Buy-In No Limit Hold'em event, and  all time earnings of just over $10K  the unlikely Texan faced one of the game's toughest players and the holder of 2 WSOP bracelets, John “Johnny World” Henningan.  Gillis came to the head-up match with a 2-1 chip advantage and apparently was not aware of or didn't worry much about Johnny Hennigan's reputation.  He played his game and in short order had Hennigan all in with second best.  Henningan received $319,993 for second place.

The following lists the final table order of finish and prize money paid out to each player.

  1. Ted Gillis -------------- $514,027

  2. John Henningan------- $319,993

  3. Dejan Divkovic------- $222.429

  4. Jacobo Fernandez ---- $160,193

  5. Mustapha Kanit------- $117,079

  6. Jaime Kaplan---------- $86,609

  7. Hiren Patel------------- $64,911

  8. Edison Shields -------- $49,267

  9. Dylan Thomassie ----- $37,834

Congratulations to Ted Gillis for his first WSOP gold bracelet and win in 2014 event #19 $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em.
