Hungary's Norbert Szecsi Wins Gold At WSOP 2013

Hungary's Norbert Szecsi Wins Gold At WSOP 2013Hungary has just picked-up its first gold bracelet of WSOP 2013, after 22 year-old Budapest professional Norbert Szecsi took down the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em (Event #42) for $345,037, having first overcome a field of 2,100 players over three days.
With his latest victory at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Norbert Szecsi takes his live career earnings to $482,244, whilst also becoming his country’s 4th ever bracelet winner, alongside Peter Traply (2009), Peter Gelenscer (2010) and Vlademar Kwaysser (2010).
A good sized field was attracted to the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament to create a prize pool worth $1,890,000. Amongst those notable pros cashing in at the event was Neil Channing in 177th ($1,927), Allen Kessler in 153rd ($2,116), Matt Matros in 51st ($5,707), Jacob Balsiger in 40th ($6,879), and David Chiu in 30th ($8,316).
By the time just six players remained in the tournament, Norbert Szecsi was the  shortest stack at the final table but then doubled-up twice to get back in contention. Norbert Szecsi then proceeded to eliminate Kirby Martin in 4th ($107,512), and Chris DeMaci in 3rd ($149,281) before getting heads-up against US pro Denis Gnidash.
As the heads-up battle commenced Dennis Gnidash held a 3.8m to 2.5m chip advantage over his Hungarian opponent, but Szecsi was soon able to take the lead and end the match within six hands. In the defining hand, Szecsi was dealt A-10 to Gnidash’s A-Q, and after both players were all-in on a 9-10-A-3-6 board, Gnidash finished the runner-up for $214,760, while Norbert Szecsi was awarded the prestigious WSOP bracelet.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1st: Norbert Szecsi – $345,037
2nd: Dennis Gnidash – $214,760
3rd: Chris DeMaci – $149,281
