Brian Meinders and Austin Scott are both first time recipients
Event 25 - $1.500 buy-in Limit Hold'em Shootout is now in the 43rd World Series of Poker books as a victory for Brian Meinders, who survived a star-studded field of 365 top players, including Matt Matros, Greg Mueller, Justin Bonomo, Victor Ramdin, Scott Seiver and Mike Leah, to make the final table and then carry the heads up against Darin Thomas.
After three days of action Meinders faced a final table that comprised Darin Thomas, Christopher Vitch, Victor Ramdin, Brock Parker, Preston Derden, Matthew Schreiber, Sean Rice and Ian Johns.
That was whittled down to a heads up between Meinders and Darin Thomas, with Meinders holding a chip lead that he retained throughout and used to defeat his opponent. Meinders took home his first bracelet and the main prize of $116,118, leaving his rival with the runner up check for $71,704.
In Event 26 - $3,000 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha, Austin Scott was part of an intimidating field of 589 players but more than held his own to win his first WSOP bracelet and a handy $361,797.
Scott entered heads up play against Brett Richey with the chip lead and despite an early double up by his opponent continued to deplete Richey's chip stack until he had him at his mercy and dismissed him with a second placing pay day of $223,492.
Other final table pay outs were as follows:
Vadzim Kursevich $158,530
Scott Stanko $114,037
Huykhiem Nguyen $83,180
Tom Chambers $61,521
Romik Vartzar $46,117
Dutch Boyd $35,038
Thomas Pettersson $26,966
