Day 3 completed

Congratulations to Brock Parker, Event #14 Champion! ($223,688)

It was a long three days of limit hold'em, but the action never stopped here in Event #14, $2,500 Six-handed Limit Hold'em. Brock Parker kept himself in the middle of the pack on the first two days and did his best at all times to keep himself in contention.

It looked as if Daniel Negreanu was going to run away with this gold bracelet and claim another in his career, but Brock Parker was too much of a challenge heads up. Parker was down a hefty amount of chips to Negreanu, but he battled back against one of poker's juggernauts to take down his first ever WSOP gold bracelet!

The action began with 367 entrants and Parker was able to best them all. This win was his largest tournament score ever and was worth more than all of his previous tournament winnings combined. Known as an online guru, Parker has now made a name for himself in the live realm.

Congratulations to Brock Parker on his first WSOP gold bracelet and capturing the title of Event #14!
