24-year-old Joey Weissman enjoys a $694,609 pay-day and his first WSOP bracelet...but only after a tough fight
24-year-old Florida poker pro Joey Weissman celebrated his first World Series of Poker bracelet and a prize of $694,609 Wednesday after winning a gruelling nine-hour final table and a hard-fought heads up against Jeremy Quehen of Nice, France in event 46 - $2,500 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em.
Weissman dominated the final table to enter the heads up at Level 31 with a more than 2 to 1 chip advantage, but the Frenchman never gave up, managing to battle back into contention, and at one point even seize the lead.
The duo's three-hour heads up tussle only ended at 3am local time with the blinds at 60,000-120,000 with a 15,000 ante, leaving both players physically and mentally exhausted.
Quehen's outstanding runner-up performance was rewarded with a $429,535 pay day.
Other payouts in the event, which attracted 1,607 entries, included:
Fernando Brito $282,676
Philip Meulyzer $203,781
Bradley Lipsey $149,162
Joe Gualtieri $110,775
Michael Gagliano $83,428
Joshua Pedraza $63,686
Konstantin Puchkov $49,245
