2014 WSOP Event #9 $1000 No Limit Hold'em

by Joseph Smith Sr.


Jeffrey Smith won his first World Series of Poker bracelet when his trip nines topped Danny Nguyen's failed heart draw.  Smith won $323,125, more than enough to buy a lifetime supply of gold polish.  Nguyen hauled away $199,829 for second place.

The Encinitas, California poker player's best WSOP finish prior to this win was in the 2013 Millionairer Maker event when he left in 605th place and collected $2,704.  Smith and Nguyen played heads-up for three hours while alternating the chip lead before Smith finally put together the set to win it all.

The $1,000 buy-in event offered a $1,746,000 prize pool to the 1,940 entrants.  The following list the final table nine's order of finish and cash awarded:


  1. Jeffrey Smith -------- $323,125

  2. Nghiahiep Nguyen -- $199,829

  3. Frank Patti -----------  $138.160

  4. John Fontana --------  $99,644

  5. Chris Haugo ---------  $72,843

  6. Chris Hunichen ------ $53,951

  7. Brad Libson ---------- $40,489

  8. David Inselberg ------ $30,781

  9. Jorge Vergara --------- $23,693

Congratulations to Jeffrey Smith for his win and new WSOP gold bracelet.
