How Weisman Won Event #10

Dylan Weisman closed Day 1 with the chip lead atop the final six players. Weisman knocked out Chris Brewer in seventh place to finish Day 1 and put 2,480,000 chips in the bag. He never lost the top spot from there, eliminating all five of his opponents on Saturday to get the victory.

Weisman first knockout out Isaac Kempton when he backed into a flush against Kempton’s pair of aces. Although Kempton wound up with a sixth-place finish in this event, he did pick up 44 PGT leaderboard points to extend his lead on the season leaderboard.

After Kempton, Weisman busted Stephen Chidwick in fifth place, with Chidwick adding $98,000 to his bankroll. Matthew Wantman was next to go, hitting the rail in fourth place for $134,750. Wantman got the last of his chips in on a queen-seven-two flop. He had queen-jack-ten-seven for two pair against the queen-nine-six-three for Weisman. Another queen on the turn gave Wantman a full house, but then a nine on the river improved Weisman to a superior full house.

Ali Imsirovic, last season’s PGT champion, then fell in third place. He got his money in on a king-four-three flop with the king-ten-eight-five. Imsirovic was up against Weisman who had the ace-king-nine-nine. No help came for Imsirovic and he was out in third place for $183,750.

The tournament came down to heads-up play between Weisman and Cary Katz. Weisman had 4,935,000 in chips to Katz’s 2,415,000.

With the blinds at 30,000-60,000, the final hand came up. Weisman was on the button with ace-eight-five-five with one suit and limped in. Katz checked his option with queen-jack-three-three double suited. The flop was jack-five-two rainbow, giving Katz top pair and Weisman middle set. Katz checked, Weisman bet 80,000, and Katz called. The turn was a queen, improving Katz to two pair but it still wasn’t good. He checked and Weisman bet 340,000. Katz check-raised and the two got the money in the middle. Katz saw the bad news that his top two pair was behind Weisman’s set and was in need of a queen of a jack on the river. The river was an ace to secure the tournament victory for Weisman.
