Thursday, June 16 2011 : Kim misses out on the bracelet and gold for Darren Woods, Jason Somerville and Foster Hay
 
Kim Nguyen just missed becoming one of the exclusive band of women who hold a WSOP winner's bracelet this week, but had the consolation of a runner-up prize worth $131,900 after a spirited but unsuccessful one-and-a-half hour clash with Brit player Darren Woods, who took the bracelet for event 19 – the $2,500 Limit Hold'em Six Handed – and the $213,431 main prize.
 
354 entrants started on the first day of the event, including many experienced and respected top players, but by day three the field was down to just 12 survivors, among them the only bracelet winner left in the field, Matt Matros, and internet poker ace Richard “nutsinho” Lyndaker – both of whom were bundled out before reaching the final table.
