Spitale Wins Maiden Gold in Millionaire Maker 

Argentina's Franco Spitale won his first gold bracelet and $1,250,125 as he beat American Justin Carey heads-up battle for the Millionaire Maker title and his first-ever WSOP bracelet. In a record-breaking field of 10,939 entrants, Spitale's victory came after a final table where former bracelet winner Jason Hickey missed out on the really late stages of the final table, as six potential new winners went to the latter stages. 

Heads-up, Carey's pocket deuces couldn't hold against Spitale's ace-ten, and an ace on the turn did for Carey's stack, Spitale getting the win and as both men celebrated seven-figure scores, only one held the gold bracelet aloft.

Sean Jazayeri Wins Maiden Bracelet 

Sean Jazayeri won Event #59, the $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold'em end, taking home $368,025 after beating the overnight chip leader Yucel Eminoglu. An entertaining final table saw both men who made the heads-up battle control the majority of eliminations, as the final two were on a collision course to decide who would win their first-ever WSOP bracelet.

After Eminoglu eliminated Paul Runge in third place, he went into the heads-up battle with a better than 2:1 chip lead, as Sean Jazayeri began his ultimately successful uphill climb to the top of the mountain. Jazayeri got ace-four to double through Eminoglu's queen-ten and thereafter, used his lead to seal victory, winning with ace-ten against his Turkish opponent's ace-eight to win.

Paolo Boi is Star Boy in $3,000 NLHE Event 

Event #60 concluded on Thursday night as the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em event saw Italian player Paolo Boi victorius, topping the field of 1,773 for a top prize of $676,900.

Boi went into the final duel with a 6:1 chip lead and while Rodriguez doubled once, an ill-timed bluff soon after saw Boi make the tournament-winning call, relegating the American to second place as the Argentinian fans went crazy on the rail.
