2014 WSOP Event #55 $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

by Joseph Smith Sr.

Event #55 of the 2014 World Series of Poker at the Rio in Las Vegas was another of the player and crowd pleaser.  A $1,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em match that always attracts quite a crowd and this one was no exception.  Day 1 saw 2,396 entrants take a seat for the scheduled three day event.  Offering a prize pool of $3,234,600 paid to the top 243 finishers.

A purse share totaling $582,321 was held for the winner along with a new WSOP gold bracelet.  As is typical of these events most of the field was on the rail at the end of Day 1 leaving just 268 players with chips to return on Day 2 and continue the journey to poker stardom.

When the final table was reached on Day 3 David Jackson had a commanding chip lead with 4,950,000

while the next closest stack was just under a million and held by Aaron Massey.  Jackson finally hit the rail in 4th place while Massey went out in the 3rd spot.

Heads-up play between Asi Moshe and Michael Ferrer began with Ferrer holding a slight chip lead. It only required 7 hands into the heads-up play before Asi Moshe had all of the chips, $582,321 in cash and his first WSOP gold bracelet which he can admire on his return trip home to Tel Aviv, Israel.

Michael Ferrer had to settle for $361,207 in cash for his runner-up finish.    

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

  1. Asi Moshe ------------------- $582,321
