Wsop Event 54 Final Results

Thursday July 7, 2011 : The last competitions prior to the main event continued to play down to winners Wednesday, with Max Lykov winning event 54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em after 4 gruelling days of poker against the best the world has to offer.
Lykov started the fourth day Wednesday as chip leader and dominated proceedings throughout a final table that was formed when Mario Doria was eliminated in tenth place.
Lykov and Dror Michaelo between them demolished the final table and were the heads up duo once Lykov eliminated Warren Wooldridge from Britain in third place, leaving Lykov with a 2 to 1 advantage over his heads up opponent.
The Russian pro made sure he leveraged his chip advantage to the full, and the finale was brief and efficient, with Dror Michaelo heading for the cashier to collect his runner-up prize of $401,296 and Lykov celebrating a WSOP bracelet and a $648,880 payday.
