Day 3 Completed
The third and final day of the Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em of the 2014 World Series of Poker restarted with 11 players remaining. Ultimately it was Will Givens who emerged victorious for a payday of $306,634 after six levels of play. Just one week ago, Givens finished fourth in Event #33 after entering the final table as chip leader.
Givens defeated start-of-day chip leader Angela Prada-Moed heads-up after a short but intense battle. Prada-Moed scored a career-high payday of $189,632 and reached her second final table after a fourth-place finish in the 2012 $1,000 No Limit Hold'em - Ladies Championship.
Day 3 started with a bang after Paul Sokoloff doubled up through Terik Brown in the first hand. Brown would bow out shortly after in eleventh place. The second woman among the finalists, Kim Ng, ran with into the of Givens and was eliminated in tenth place.
The action continued at a high pace and Loren Klein never recovered from a huge double up of Duy Ho through him to hit the rail in ninth place in Hand #11. Likewise, Ivan Saul lost a big pot and was then all in short-stacked in Hand #13 to bust in a three-way pot with .
Dmitrii Shchepkin was at risk with and improved on the flop against the of Prada-Moed, but one of the over cards on the river resulted in his elimination in seventh place for $38,423. Prada-Moed was also responsible for the next bustout in Hand #23 when a king-high bluff of Ho went wrong.
Down to five players, the action was moved to the ESPN Feature Stage and Patrick Curzio joined the rail in fifth place after his inferior ace-kicker failed to improve against the of Givens. Half an hour later, David Hass lost a coinflip with against the pocket fives of Prada-Moed and he had to settle for fourth place.
Three-handed, Sokoloff was all-in and at risk several times, but it would take until Hand #145 to see him bow out in third place after losing a coin flip against Givens, who clearly dominated in the late stages of the final table. Despite three double-ups for Prada-Moed, she could never retake the lead, and in the fourth crucial confrontation, Givens dodged a flush draw and his rail exploded in celebration.
