WSOP 2010 Event 16 winner Carter Phillips
Day 1 of this event saw the Pavilion Room at capacity and the Amazon Room handling some of the overflow of this event. By the end of the day, the money bubble was reached and 146 players took their seat in Day 2.
At the end of Day 2, only 16 players remained. Among those that fell during Day 2, but still in the money, were Robert Williamson III, Ted Lawson, Hoyt Corkins, Matt Hawrilenko, Al Barbieri, Jerry Yang, and Mark Seif.
On Day 3, 16 players returned to take their shot at the gold bracelet. 16 became 6 and the final table reached. Carter Phillips entered the final table as the dominant chip leader with almost 2 Million more than 2nd. Here are how the final six started in chips:
Carter Phillips never wavered at this WSOP final table and reached heads-up play with a 3 to 1 chip lead over Samuel Gerber. Heads-up play did not last long as Gerber decided to run with Q-8, but he ran smack into the A-K of Phillips. An ace on the flop extended Phillips hold on the bracelet. The river brought Gerber a possible straight draw, but the river fell a blank to complete the wire-to-wire final table run of Carter Phillips.
Carter Phillips took down the first six-handed bracelet of this WSOP. In addition he received $482,774 in prize money. Congratulations to Carter Phillips, Event #16 Champion.
