It took three days of intense play, but a winner has finally emerged in the 2014 World Series of Poker Event #29: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em. After 30 total levels of play, Pierre Milan topped a field of 1,165 players to capture the $536,768 first-place prize and his first gold bracelet.

Interestingly, Milan defeated Justin Oliver heads up to win. Oliver took down the 2013 WSOP Event #38 $2,500 No-Limit Hold’em Four Handed for $309,071 and ended up giving that gold bracelet to his dad for Father’s Day. Unfortunately for him he was denied his second bracelet on Father’s Day.

Day 3 action saw the final 20 players return to Level 21 (5,000/10,000/1,000), and it didn’t take long for the first elimination of the day to occur. It happened when Jamie Armstrong opened for 20,000 under the gun and Richard Kirsch called him from the small blind. The big got out of the way and it was heads-up action to the {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} flop. Kirsch was first to act and wasted little time in moving all in for right around 135,000. Armstrong called.

Kirsch: {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Armstrong: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Kirsch flopped a flush draw and decided to play it strong. Unfortunately for him it did pan out as the {Q-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {J-Spades} on the river. Kirsch became the day's first casualty and took home $16,220 for his 20th-place finish.

From there ten others followed him out the door before the final table was set including William Reynolds (19th - $16,220), Rep Porter (18th - $19,718), Joseph Brattole (17th - $19,718), Justin Kindred (16th - $19,718), Marius Pospiech (15th - $24,277), Grayson Nichols (14th - $24,277), Yong Lu (13th - $24,277), Scott Davies (12th - $30,267), Chris Johnson (11th - $30,267), and David Benefield (10th - $30,267).

After a dinner break, Sam Cohen hit the rail in ninth place after her {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} failed to overcome the [1d10s] of Justin Oliver, and she was followed out the door by British pro Daniel Laming, who had his pocket kings cracked by the ace-queen of Matt Salsberg.

Andy Phan took his leave in seventh when his pocket queens fell to Barry Hutter’s big slick when an ace spiked on the river, and then Oliver put a bad beat on Armstrong to send him home in sixth.

After a short-stacked Hutter fell in fifth place, the four-handed battle waged until Thad McNulty and Matt Salsberg, who were the short stacks, fell in fourth and third place respectively. That left Justin Oliver and Pierre Milan to battle heads up essentially even in chips.

Even so, it took just three hands for a winner to emerge. That’s because the two played a big pot on the second hand of heads-up play, which went to Milan. One hand later and it was all over.

Hand #127: Pierre Milan raised to 200,000 from the small blind and Justin Oliver defended the big to see a flop of {9-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. Milan continued for 245,000 and Oliver folded.

Hand #128: Pierre Milan raised to 160,000 from the button and Matt Salsberg moved all in for 795,000 from the button. Milan folded.

Hand #129: Justin Oliver raised to 200,000 from the button and Matt Salsberg moved all in for 1.015 million from the small blind. Pierre Milan called from the big blind, and Oliver got out of the way.

Milan: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Salsberg: {k-Clubs}{j-Spades}

Milan had woken up with a monster in the big blind, and Salsberg was in a bad spot. The {5-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop did little to give Salsberg hope, and neither did the {9-Diamonds} turn. The {9-Spades} would be the final nail in Salsberg coffin, and he earned $207,842 for his third-place finish.

Hand #73: Pierre Milan opened for 100,000 under the gun. Thad McNulty called from the cutoff, and then Jamie Armstrong moved all in for 630,000 from the button. Milan folded and McNulty did the same.

Hand #74: Thad McNulty opened for 110,000 from the hijack and Pierre Milan called from the big blind. Milan then check-called a bet of 135,000 on the {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop, which was followed by checks on the {7-Hearts} turn and {Q-Clubs} river. Both players held an ace, and with the queen on board they chop.

Hand #75: Thad McNulty opened under the gun and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #76: Barry Hutter raised to 100,000 and Matt Salsberg moved all in from the cutoff for 800,000. Hutter folded.

Hand #77: Justin Oliver limped the button and Jamie Armstrong moved all in from the big blind for 985,000. Oliver tanked for a couple of minutes before making the call.

Oliver: {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Armstrong: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

Armstrong was well out in front, and his position got even stronger when the {8-Spades}{j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop gave him top pair. The {9-Hearts} turn made things interested as Oliver picked up an open-ended straight draw, and wouldn't you know it, the {7-Hearts} spiked on the river to complete it.

Armstrong, who began the day as the chip leader, was eliminated in sixth place for $83,486.

Hand #8: Thad Mcnulty raised to 70,000 in the cutoff and received no action.

Hand #9: Andy Phan raised to 80,000 in the small blind and Barry Hutter defended his big blind. Both checked to the turn of a {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} board where Hutter bet 90,000. Phan called, the {4-Diamonds} river completed the board and Phan checked. Hutter bet 220,000 and Phan quickly folded.

Hand #10: Justin Oliver raised to 65,000 in early position and Daniel Laming three-bet shoved for 360,000 from the hijack. Matt Salsberg called in the big blind and Oliver folded.

Laming: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}
Salsberg: {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}

The flop fell {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} to give Salsberg a flush draw to go along with top pair. The {6-Diamonds} turn kept Laming ahead, but the {Q-Spades} river fell to give Salsberg trip queens to eliminate Laming.

Sam Cohen Eliminated in 9th Place ($38,244)

Nível 26 : 15,000/30,000, 5,000 ante
Sam Cohen - 9th Place
Sam Cohen - 9th Place

Hand #5: Matt Salsberg opened for 65,000 from the hijack, Thad McNulty called from the big blind, and the flop came down {8-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{q-Hearts}. McNulty checked, Salsberg bet 75,000, and McNulty called to see the {4-Spades} on the turn. McNulty check-called another bet, this time 100,000, and the {Q-Spades} completed the board on the river. McNulty opted to lead out for 200,000 and Salsberg released his hand.

Hand #6: Action folded to Sam Cohen on the button and she moved all in for 275,000. The blinds folded and Cohen won the pot.

Hand #7: Justin Oliver opened for 65,000 from the hijack only to have Sam Cohen three-bet all in for 360,000 from the cutoff. The button and blinds all folded, and then Oliver thought long and hard before making the call.

Oliver: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Cohen: {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

It was a race situation, but Cohen was the one that needed to improve. She didn't do it on the {5-Spades}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop, and the {a-Diamonds} turn was equally as useless. Cohen needed either a king or queen on the river to stay alive, but it wasn't in the cards as the {4-Spades} blanked.
