by Joseph Smith Sr.

Make it No-Limit Hold'em tournament and they will come by the thousands.  2014 WSOP's Event #44 was a $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em affair scheduled for three days of play.  And come they did, in fact, just 86 players shy of two thousand bought one of the $1,500 seats.

The money tally from the 1,914 entrants created a prize pool of $2,583,900 to be distributed among the  top 198 finishers.  The winner of the event receiving $478,102 in cash and a WSOP gold event champion's bracelet.  Among the names of those getting paid was well known pros James Wood, Jeff Madsen, Ylon Schwartz, Men Nguyen, Barry Greenstein and more.

The official nine-handed final table was reached a few minutes after 4PM when the day's chip leader, Brandon Ageloff, bubbled out of the final table and collected $27,337 for 10th place.

Heads-up play between winner Jordan Morgan and Evan McNiff  began with Morgan holding a 4 to 1 chip advantage.  After 37 hands the two players took an approximate one hour dinner break with Morgan now holding a 5 to 1 chip advantage.

Finally, after adding an extra Day 4 to the 3 day scheduled event we have a winner.  It took 56 hands into the additional day of heads-up play to deliver a Hold'em staple finish, Big Slick vs small pair.  Morgan push with his pair of sixes and McNiff called with A-K.  The board offered no help to McNiff and Jordan Morgan claimed all the chips and his first WSOP gold bracelet.  He also picked up $478,102 in cash.
