Saturday June 27,2015 : 2015 WSOP event 46
The $3,000 buy-in Six-Max Pot-Limit Omaha clash which was won by Belarus professional player Vasili Firsau (38).
The competition attracted 682 entries, created a prize pool of $1.86 million and saw Firsau emerge as the chip leader on a final table that included three-bracelet WSOP veteran Dan Idema, who was the first to bust.
The final table proved to be a protracted affair, especially at the four handed stage when Firsau, Nipun Java, Andreas Freund and Numit Agrawal slugged it out until the early hours of the following morning and had to return the following day to decide a winner.
Refreshed, the foursome went at it with vigour and it took just 40 hands to set the heads up between Firsau and Nipun Java, with the latter holding a small chip advantage which Firsau quickly attacked and overcame to seize the lead and skillfully deploy into a win and his first bracelet.
The full final table pay-outs were:
1 Vasili Firsau $437,575
2 Nipun Java $270,509
3 Andreas Freund $171,626
4 Numit Agrawal $112,717
5 Vadzim Markushevski $76,373
6 Daniel Idema $53,342
