Congratulations to Adam Friedman, Winner of Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better ($269,037)
After a grueling, three-hour heads up match against Todd Brunson, Adam Friedman is the owner of a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
Day 3 started with 19 players, including Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey, who were looking to make history. For Hellmuth, it would've been his twelfth bracelet, extending his lead over Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan by two. For Ivey, it would be his eighth bracelet, putting him three behind Hellmuth. It would also earn him a lot of money in bracelet bets.
Hellmuth didn't even make it to the final table however - Friedman, who entered the day as the chip leader, eliminated him
"I thought this was the one," Hellmuth told his wife before heading off to the cage to pick up his money.
Joining Hellmuth on the rail before the final table were the following:
Phil Hellmuth managed a $11,637 win.
Todd Brunson finished 2nd with $166,269
Phil Ivey finished 7th.
