The 2012 World Series of Poker is nearing its end. 2 tournaments will be held in the final day of play. In the final day of the play, one bracelet will be awarded and the second on will be suspended due to the late hour.
18 players returned on Wednesday to play in Event #23, Championship. The field will be full of big players. Artem Metalidi began the day with chip lead, he had faced Eugene Katchalov, Johnny Chan, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Joseph Hachem and Scott Montgomery threatening him. Around 6 players were eliminated and wasted their time within the 1st half of the day’s play. The pace of play slowed down pretty fast when the players shuffled the chips between themselves. In the next 3 hours, the official 6 handed final table was strong when Simon Charette defeated Montgomery to win the chip lead.
Down to two six-handed tables, Metalidi drew Montgomery and Event #11 final tablist Damien Lhommeau to his table and Lichtenberger was joined by Grospellier, Deeb and Simon Charette on his patch of felt. Over the span of the next three hours, the official six handed final table was determined when an active Charette knocked off Montgomery in sixth place to take over the chip lead.
Simon Charette made a raise to 125K and Metalidi slid out a 3 bet of 350K. Unmoved by the circumstances, Charette made a 4 bet while Metalidi moved all in. Simon Charette made the call and tabled 6 pockets, whereas Metalidi could only gather an A-2 for the battle. After the board arrived with no Ace or other strange incidents, Simon won the 2nd bracelet for Canada in winning Event number twenty three. Simon Charette won 567,624 dollars.
