WSOP Event #21, a scheduled 3 day No-Limit Hold'em affair with a $1,000 buy-in, attracted 2,043 entrants, all with the singular goal of taking home the WSOP gold. Of course, the $335,659 winner's share of the $1,838,700 prize pool also offered some motivation to be the last player with a chip stack and a chair. The event paid the top 216 finishers a share of the cash.
Winner, Dominik Nitsche, fresh off a win in the World Series of Poker Circuit National Champinship apparently brought his good luck to Las Vegas. During the heads-up match with second place finisher Dave D'Alesandro it seemed that Nitsche never missed a flop, or a turn or a river. Whatever he needed he got to stay in the match. The heads-up lasted almost one hundred hands before Nitsche made a river flush against D'Alesandro's small pair and smaller stack and it was finally over.
Dominik Nitsche had his third WSOP gold bracelet and $335,659 in cash. Dave D'Alesandro had to settle for second place and $208,931.
The following lists the final table order of finish and money awarded each player.
Dominik Nitsche ----- $335,659
Dave D'Alesandro---- $208,931
Bob Bounahra -------- $145,229
Zachary Gruneberg – $104,594
