2014 WSOP Event #42 $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Six-Handed

by Joseph Smith Sr.

Pot-Limit Omaha with a $5,000 buy-in usually pulls in enough players to create a large prize pool, $2,124,400, and a field loaded with poker royalty.  Among the 48 top finishers to receive money from the event purse was the holder of two WSOP bracelets, JC Tran, and the winner of the 1998 Main Event with five WSOP bracelets, Scotty Nguyen.

Thirteen players from the field of 452 entrants survived to play on Day 3 and the chip leader was the field's one and only former hoodie salesman, Phil Laak.  The thirteen returning players were finally cut  down to the six making the official final table a few minutes before 6PM.  A few minutes after 7PM The Unabomber was eliminated in 6th place and collected $66,918 on his way out.

Heads-up play between Darius Studdard and Michael Drummond began with Drummond enjoying an almost 3 to 1 chip advantage.  A dozen hands into the heads-up and Darius Studdard was headed for the cashier's cage to collect his $334,593 for second place.

Michael Drummond claimed his first WSOP gold bracelet and added $541,747 to his bank. 

The following lists the six final table players and prize money awarded to each.

  1. Michael Drummond ------ $541,747

  2. Darius Studdard ----------- $334,593

  3. Kory Kilpatrick ------------ $217,113

  4. Ryan Schmidt -------------- $143,397

  5. Brant Hale -------------------$95,598

  6. Phil Laak -------------------- $66,918

Congratulations to Michael Drummond for winning his first WSOP gold bracelet and the winner's share of $541,747 cash in 2014 WSOP's Event #42.
