Jason Duval Claims Bracelet Number 7 For Canada At WSOP 2013

Jason Duval Claims Bracelet Number 7 For Canada At WSOP 2013Canada’s Jason Duval has won WSOP $1,500 No Limit Hold’em (Event #28), after defeating a field of 2,115 players over three days on his way to capturing a gold bracelet, and collecting the $521,202 first place prize.
The 23 year old pro, who cashed in at his first live tournament in 2012, now becomes the seventh Canadian player to win a bracelet at this year’s WSOP, and commenting on his country’s consistent good results at the WSOP, explained :
“I think it’s the community we have that sticks together. We have online forums, especially for people in Quebec. We help each other a lot. With that, there is a lot of good poker players. Some were my friends before I started playing poker. I started to play and they helped me a lot. Now, you can see from the rail that – even if they are really good – they are willing to share it with others. We like to share.”
WSOP Event #28 attracted one of the biggest fields so far at WSOP 2013 to create a prize pool worth $2,855,250. Amongst the notable names cashing in at the tournament was Joe Cada in 211th ($2,912), Men Nguyen in 156th ($3,197), Erica Schoenberg in 73rd ($5,296), Hollywood actor James Woods in 54th ($8,622), Olivier Busquet in 26th ($15,389), and  T.J. Cloutier in 13th ($23,812).
By the time the unofficial final table of ten had been set, Duval was the shortest stack but managed to survive until five players remained before ploughing ahead by first eliminating Tommy Townsend in 5th for $118,707. Eventually, Duval would go heads-up against Majid Yahyaei with both players fairly even in chips, and two hours later Duval (Q-8) bested Yahyaei (Q-2) on an A-K-7-10-8 board to claim the bracelet.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1. Jason Duval – $521,202
2. Majid Yahyaei – $324,442
3. Masayuki Nagata – $225,521
4. James Lee – $162,420
5. Tommy Townsend – $118,707
6. Dan Martin – $87,813
7. Steve Bartlett – $65,813
8. Daniel Bishop – $49,952
9. Joseph Cappuccio – $38,360
