2014 WSOP Event #49 $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

by Joseph Smith Sr.

A midrange No-Limit Hold'em event began with 696 players in $5,000 seats chasing a prize pool of $3,271,200.  The top 72 finishers earned prize money from the purse while the winner received a nice WSOP payday of $719,707.  Additionally one of the coveted WSOP gold bracelets goes to the winner.

Heads-up and 2 AM both players agree to play another level so into the wee hours the one-on-one duel.

Norbert Szecsi enjoys a 3 to 1 chip advantage but opponent David Miscikowski attacks the stacks and doubles through to take the chip lead.  Szecsi comes right back and regains a small lead about half way through the session.  Looks like this ones going into an extra day.

The two players returned to the Rio to play to a completion of Event #49 and picked up where they left off earlier in the day.  After a level of play the two were still close when they left for the first break.  Returning to play yet another level they probably didn't even need to sit down because two hands into play David Miscikowski had all the chips and Norbert Szecsi was pondering how he was going to spend his $444,707 for second place.

David Miscikowski left with $719,707 in cash and his first WSOP gold.  

The following lists the nine final table players' order of finish and the prize money awarded to each.

  1. David Miscikowski----- $719,707

  2. Norbert Szecsi----------- $444,425

  3. Manig Loeser ------------$288,912

  4. Margareta Morris  -------$212,202

  5. Oliver Price---------------$158,064

  6. Kevin McPhee----------- $119,267

  7. Jean Gaspard ------------ $91,037

  8. John Dolan ---------------$70,265

  9. Blake Bohn -------------- $54,792

Congratulations to David Miscikowski for winning his first WSOP gold bracelet and the winner's share of $719,707 in cash.
