2014 WSOP Event #29 $2,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em

by Joseph Smith Sr.

World Series of Poker Event #29 came to a conclusion early Monday morning and finished the distribution of the $2,650,375 prize pool to the top 117 finishers. The $2,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em tournament attracted a crowd of 1,165 players.

The scheduled three day event included some of poker's better known professional players.  In the mix and also on the payout sheet were Brock Parker, Rep Porter, David Pham, Matt Affleck, Tony Dunst, the 1998 Main Event Champion, Scotty Nguyen and 2008 Main Event Champion, Jerry Yang.

An unofficial ten handed final table was reached at about 5:15 and played for two hours before a player, David Benefield, bubbled out to leave the official nine-handed final table.  That's a two hour stretch showing how serious and dedicated these players are for WSOP gold.  The winner's large pile of cash might also be a motivating factor.

In the end, Pierre Milan of Bagneux, CA, France rose above all the other entrants and claimed his first WSOP gold and a little over a half million in prize money after defeating Justin Oliver heads-up.    

The following lists the nine final table players' order of finish and prize money won.

  1. Pierre Milan -------------$536,768

  2. Justin Oliver ------------ $332,198

  3. Matt Salsberg------------ $207,842

  4. Thad McNulty----------- $150,859

  5. Barry Hutter ------------- $111,368

  6. Jamie Armstrong -------- $83,486

  7. Andy Phan --------------- $63,502

  8. Daniel Laming----------- $48,952

  9. Samantha Cohen -------- $38,244

Congratulations to Pierre Milan for claiming his first WSOP gold bracelet and the title of WSOP Poker Champion.
