After 12 hours of grinding online, Jason 'TheBigGift' Gooch has come out on top of the $1,000 WSOP.com ONLINE No-Limit Hold'em Double Stack event.

With a total of 922 entries, Gooch was the last man standing and won $241,492.94 and his first bracelet.

Besides coming close to winning his first WSOP bracelet just a couple of weeks ago, Gooch has also cashed in a few live World Series of Poker tournaments this summer including finishing in 51st place for $4,083 in the $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha, and the finishing 162nd for $2,248 in the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha.

The final table was a stacked affair featuring Max 'Max Sparrow' Pescatori (ninth - $17,348.99), Justin 'KingFortune' Liberto (eight, $22,541.03), and Dario 'Srio87' Sammartino (fourth for $75,084.85).

Pescatori got it in with seven-jack suited but was unable to get a triple as Augustino and countryman Sammartino chopped up his stack with king-nine for both. Ran 'Margarete' Koller got it in with queens against Sammartino's ace-king and saw the latter hit an ace on the flop.

Timothy 'Stucksoomuch' Wong got it in as a small dog holding king-four to Augustino's ace-six. Neither player hit anything and the tournament was down to four players. Sammartino followed him out of the door, busting with king-queen to the eventual winner's ace-jack.

In what was now a rapid game of poker, Anthony "Scrotile" Augstino was out only minutes later. He got it in with queen-six against king-queen and couldn't hit a six or any other sort of help.

The heads-up took a little bit longer, with the lead shifting a couple of times. Eventually, Jason 'TheBigGift' Gooch got out ahead against Brian 'Pure__reason' Wood. In the last hand of the tournament, Gooch flopped trips and saw no threats appear on the turn or river against Wood's inferior hand.
