2014 WSOP Event #56 $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

by Joseph Smith Sr.

We have pointed out the popularity of No-Limit Hold'em poker many times while covering the 2014 World Series of Poker.  If you offer the “Cadillac” of tournament poker games it doesn't matter a great deal how much or little the buy-in they will come and stand in line with their seat money in their hands.  Having just witnessed a $1 million buy-in event that pulled in 42 players we now move to a $1 thousand buy-in that sold 2,525 seats.

These lower buy-in tournaments typically break the money bubble on Day 1 and event #56 was no exception having reached the 270 players scheduled to be paid from the $2,272,500 prize pool in the day's final level.

The additive allure of WSOP gold bracelets seeds the list of entrants with well known pros players seeking the gold.  With the large fields even the lowest rung of buy-ins creates huge prize pools and again, event #56 was no exception offering the winner $403,482 in cash.  It may not be the $15 million up for grabs in The Big One for One Drop but it will certainly help to pay the bills and pad the play bank.

Today's poker player to cash in the $1,000 poker jackpot and walk away with a WSOP gold bracelet and $403,483 in cash was Mike Kachan of Edina, MN.  He defeated Jeff Blenkarn heads-up in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.  Blenkarn will be sitting on $250,815 as he makes his way back home to Rockford, MI.

Come on down to the Rio in Las Vegas, we're keeping your WSOP seat warm for you.

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

  1. Mike Kachan ------------- $403,483

  2. Jeff Blenkarn-------------- $250,815

  3. Eric Shanks --------------- $177,527

  4. Andrew Egan--------------$128,032

  5. Viktor Skoldstedt ---------$93,490

  6. Giang Hoang---------------$69,084

  7. Steve Gross ----------------$51,676

  8. Richard Milne--------------$39,109

  9. Raymond Henson----------$29,951

Congratulations to Mike Kachan for winning his first WSOP gold bracelet plus the winner's share of $403,483 in cash in the 2014 WSOP Event #56 $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em.
