2014 WSOP Event #58 $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed Max

by Joseph Smith Sr.

Those wondering about the format of this tournament have faith, it's easily explained.  The event is a No-Limit Hold'em and the part that makes it unique from all other No-Limit Hold'em tournament is the maximum number of players at each table.

Day 1 began with nine players at each table then on Day 2 the tables go to six players and on the final Day 3 the tables are four-handed until down to the last four at which point the match becomes a heads-up event.  This is the same format as an earlier $25,000 buy-in Event #2 won by Vanessa Selbst  The Mix Max format was introduced during the 2013 WSOP.

The final heads-up match occurred between Jared Jaffee and Mike Watson.  Watson had to battle his way from behind when he played the semi-final match against Mark Herm and prevailed after coming desperately close to elimination.  But, this second match with Jared Jaffee sitting across the felt didn't include another miracle come-from-behind save.  

The two traded the chip lead back and forth but eventually Jaffee pulled ahead.  The final hand saw Watson with pocket Jacks to Jaffee's  Ace - 6 of clubs.  The board gave Jaffee the winning 8 high straight to trump Watson's Jacks and he alone stood atop the field of 1,475 starters.  Winner Jared Jaffee  collected $405,428 from the $1,991,250 prize pool and his first WSOP gold bracelet.

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

  1. Jared Jaffee  --------- $405,428
