Thursday Events 34 and 35 to become part of history
Another two shiny winner's bracelets were delivered to the World Series of Poker players after historic Thursday events 34 and 35.
Naoya Kihara won the event 34 - the $5,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Six Handed competition and took home $512,029 in winner's cash. The entrance field saw 419 sign-ups, but Kihara showed his talent and determination all the way to an inspiring, even though not-too-long, heads up against Chris DeMaci. This is Kihara’s and Japan's first bracelet.
DeMaci earned $316,308 as a runner-up after Kihara's 5 to 1 chip advantage in heads up proved an insurmountable barrier for his rival. The final table gathered also Daniel Hindin, Hans Winzeler, Davidi Kitai and Tommy Le.
Event 35 - a $2,500 Mixed Hold'em Limit/No-Limit contest was marked by the victory of a Massachusetts player Christopher Tryba. The competition attracted 393 hopefuls, including some major international names.
Tryba won his first WSOP bracelet and the main prize of $210,107 after ending the game with an unforgettable move - a straight flush against Eric Cajalais, who finished the pay day with $129,766 second prize.
Additional excitement was built around the final table due to the fact that Phil Ivey took part in the game, this being his fifth final table this series.
Final table payouts also included:
Salman Behbehani $93,842
Joep van den Bijgaart $68,576
Michael Gathy $50,640
Samuel Golbuff $37,793
