All eyes were on Peter Eastgate heading into the final day of event #56, $1,500 NL Hold’em as the former World Champion returned near the head of the chip counts with just 22 players left.
The 2008 Main Event winner’s quest for bracelet number two fell just short though, busting out in fourth place when he couldn’t win a flip with 10h-Jh against eventual runner up David Borg’s pocket 9s. The bracelet itself was won by the Czech Republic’s Tomas Junek who turned his first WSOP cash into a bracelet. The youngster sealed victory over Borg when his pocket 10s held against the American’s K5. British hopes had been high at the start of play with Chris O’Donnell, Sam Holden and Paul Vas Nunes all still in contention. The trio departed in 15th, 16th and 17th place respectively with Irishman Mick Graydon following soon after in 12th place. The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1 Tomas Junek 661,022 2 David Borg 410,517 3 Daniel Vogel 289,530 4 Peter Eastgate 209,111 5 Eliyahu Levy 152,867 6 Andrew Taylor 113,092 7 Steven Goldberg 84,649 8 Tomas Trampota 64,101 9 Bassel Moussa 49,105
