Chris Ferguson was denied his 7th World Series of Poker bracelet with Timur Margolin emerging as the winner of the Event #43: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em and walking away with $507,274.

"I started with kind of a big chip lead, so I thought ... finally! But obviously, Ismael is a very strong player and it could go either way, and he had some strong hands. All of a sudden the stacks were opposite and he had a two-to-one lead. Oh my god, not again! Will this ever end?" Margolin said in the interview after his victory.

However, the short and very intense heads-up duel turned around quickly and soon after it was Margolin and his rail that had reason to celebrate.

"But I have just been playing like I have all tournament. I am feeling in a better place mentally nowadays, I am just happy to be here, happy for the experience anyways. I felt good, and I would do the same decisions, tried not to let it affect me, and then some cards came my way and that's it."
