6/12/10 – In the $5 000 buy-in NLHE (event number 17) the last 18 players from a field of 792 returned to the tables to decide who would win the big money.
 
Jason DeWitt held the lead, an advantage he rarely relinquished in the ensuing action, which saw the field narrowed down to a final table of nine and ultimately to a heads up between DeWitt and UK player Sam Trickett.
 
Trickett was unable to overcome a powerful stack and expert play from his opponent, and the main prize of $818,959 went to DeWitt. Trickett picked up a check for $505 725 to assuage his disappointment.
 
After the game, DeWitt told reporters that it was the toughest final table he had experienced so far in his career. The young ace was delighted with his first WSOP bracelet, which he previously, and narrowly missed in other WSOP events after finishing in third and second place respectively in a 2009 PLO competition, and a 2009 $3,000 triple-chance tournament.
