Event #29: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Congratulations to Matt Keikoan on His Second WSOP Bracelet!

Matt Keikoan, Event #29 champion

After nearly five hours of heads-up play, Matt Keikoan finally has all the chips in front of him.

Fourteen and a half hours ago, our final 13 players returned to the Rio to crown a new limit hold'em World Champion. The sun hadn't yet set over the Las Vegas Valley when our final table was set, and now, as Keikoan poses with his bracelet, the sun is well on its way back up in the sky.

Keikoan won his first bracelet two summers ago, topping a 1,592-strong field in the $2,000 no-limit hold'em event. Now he has a pair of them, and a wide smile across his face, his family surrounding him in his moment of victory. Despite being knocked down to only a couple of bets again and again, Keikoan never gave up, never backed down, and truly earned his $425,969 payday.

Thanks for sticking around with us tonight, and a hearty congratulations to Matt Keikoan for winning this poker marathon.

For all of us at PokerNews, good night and good luck from Las Vegas.
