David Arsht victorious in Event 13
Veteran live tournament player David Arsht from Radnor, Pennsylvania is the latest recipient of a World Series of Poker winner's bracelet, taking home the main prize of $211,921 in event 13, a $1,500 buy-in NLHE competition for which 730 players entered, generating a prize pool of $985,500.
The win is Arsht's second first placing in a major tournament, although he has an impressive list of cashes. Back in 2001 he scored a first in the World Poker Finals Seniors Limit Hold'em event.
Entering the final table as chip leader, the Pennsylvanian senior continued to extend his lead, eliminated several opponents as he did so until the heads up with Stephen Hung Ma was set with the elimination of Al Barbieri in third place.
Arsht's dominant lead made the final confrontation a brief affair, leaving him with the bracelet and the top money.
The final table cash list looked like this:
1 David Arsht $211,921
2 Stephen Hung Ma $130,903
3 Al Barbieri $84,388
4 Donald Auger $61,820
5 Glenn Engelbert $45,953
6 Ben Landowski $34,620
7 Jeff Weiss $26,401
8 Alexander Queen $20,370
9 Lori Kirgan $15,886
