Monday Juny 9,2014 : SENIORS AND RAZZ EVENTS COMPLETE AT WORLD SERIES OF POKER
Heimiller triumphs in the Seniors event, and another German bracelet in the Razz competition.
Two more World Series of Poker events reached a conclusion Sunday night, with Dan Heimiller and George Danzer respectively winning event 17 Seniors NLHE Championship and event 18, a $10,000 buy-in Seven Card Razz competition.
The Seniors event pulled in 4,425 entries to generate a prize pool of $3,982,500 which over two days was whittled down to a final table comprising David Smith, Anthony Wise, former WSOP champ Dennis Phillips, David Tran, Doc Barry, David Vida and Jim Custer, Dan Heimiller and Donald Maas.
Three handed play saw Maas holding a 2 million lead, but Heimiller persisted and third placed Dave Smith was eliminated for $279,412.
The heads up between Heimiller and Maas was a hard-fought affair lasting just six hands, starting with Heimiller in the lead. He was able to leverage that into a win, emerging victorious to claim the bracelet and the top prize of $627,462, and sending Maas to the cashier for a still impressive runner-up prize of $388,054.
It was Heimiller's second WSOP bracelet and his biggest yet win in a career which has seen him earn over $4 million.
Other pay-outs were:
4th Anthony Wise $206,492
5th Dennis Phillips $153,833
6th David Tran $115,651
7th Doc Barry $87,615
8th David Vida $66,945
9th Jim Custer $51,573
