Stephen Gee wins Event #13, $1,000 No Limit Hold ‘em

Friday, 11 June 2010

After two hours of heads-up play (not to mention a gruelling four-day slog through a field of 3,042 players) Stephen Gee has been crowned the winner in Event #13, $1,000 No Limit Hold ‘em.

Gee played patiently, waiting for big hands to play big pots, his stack dwindling down to less than a million at one point in the final table before he accumulated a rack of over seven million chips going into heads-up play.

His confrontation against Matt Vance was over quickly when Vance 3-bet the remainder of his 1.5m stack after a 300,000 raise from Gee. He showed Qd-Jh and was in bad shape against Gee’s Ah-Kh, even more so when the flop came ace high. The 7s turn bricked his backdoor outs and Gee was celebrating before the river as Vance was forced to settle for second place and $292,232.
The full final table payouts were as follows:

1. Steven Gee $472,479
2. Matthew Vance $292,232
3. David Baker $206,813
4. Nicholas Heather $149,702
5. Jeffrey Gross $109,621
6. Daniel Thomas $81,203
7. Kyung Han $60,833
8. Jared Hamby $46,077
9. Mats Gavatin $35,290
