The World Series of Poker returned nine players for the fourth and final day of Event #56: $5,000 No Limit Hold’em from a starting field of 623 entrants. Andres Korn broke through to win his first bracelet for the largest cash of his career, just the second bracelet for Argentina, after defeating Pete Chen heads—up for $618,285 exclusively on the PokerGO stream.
“The bracelet weighs so much more,” Korn said after winning. “I wasn’t even looking at the pay jumps; I was just focused on the bracelet. For us who play poker, this is the glory. And you don’t get many chances to play for it – not that the money isn’t nice, of course. The money is beautiful buy my main thing was the bracelet.”
Korn entered three-handed play with over half the chips in play, dispatched Thomas Boivin’s pocket fives with queen seven leading to heads-up match that lasted 44 hands that saw Pete Chen double up once against Korn’s big stack.
Finishing just outside the final table was Darren Rabinowitz in 11th, Ari Engel in 13th and Pierre Neuville 15th. Matt Affleck, Ravi Raghavan, Mike Watson, Barny Boatman and Dietrich Fast all finished in the top 25 spots.
