Pastry Chef Angela Prada Wins $190k At WSOP $1k NL

Pastry Chef Angela Prada Wins $190k At WSOP $1k NLAngela Prada has narrowly missed out on a gold bracelet after finishing runner-up at WSOP $1,000 No Limit Hold’em (Event #45) for $189,632. Prada’s previous highest score had been a 4th place finish at the 2012 WSOP $1k No Limit Hold’em Ladies Championship for $47,949, but this time around the 29-year-old pastry chef recorded her highest ever finish, whilst also pushing her live career earnings to $248,137.
Event #45 drew 1,841 players to create a prize pool worth $1,656,900. Amongst the notable names then cashing in at the tournament was Faraz Jaka in 72nd ($3,694), Hoyt Corkins in 38th ($6,064), Allyn Jaffrey Shulman in 33rd ($7,323),Max Pescatori in 23rd ($8,947), and Brandon Hall in 19th ($8,947).
By the time Angela Prada-Moed reached the final table she may have outlasted some of the most talented players in the game, but her biggest challenge still lay ahead after eventually progressing all the way to heads-up against Will Givens. The Colorado poker pro has not only notched up $2,372,087 in winnings playing online under the screen name ‘Imahustla1,’ but he has also  been enjoying a successful WSOP this year having finished 4th at the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em (Event #33) for $84,680.
As heads-up got underway, Givens held a 3-to-1 chip advantage over Angela Prada and 30 hands is all it would then take before the defining hand was played. After the dealer put out an Ac-Jd-8c flop, Prada went all-in holding Qc-4c only to be called by her opponent with Ks-Jc. The turn and river subsequently bricked out for Prada who had to then be satisfied with a runner-up finish worth $189,632.
Meanwhile, William Givens collected the gold winner’s bracelet, whilst pushing his live tournament earnings to $735,508. Commenting on his fine victory and the similar position he had faced in Event #33 a couple of weeks earlier, Givens, said:
“You know what’s really crazy? Day 2, I was at the same table I was at for restart. Then I get a dealer from Denver and we were just kidding it off. I start with 36,000 and next thing I know, I’m at 130,000, 140,000. Then, I just stayed composed. We broke down, [then on Day 3]I was in the exact same seat that I was in when we were down to two tables–450, seat 3. That’s when I was like, ‘this is destiny.’ I couldn’t believe I was here and it was a repeat. Except this time I won.”
Final Table Results:
1st: Will Givens – $306,634
2nd: Angela Prada-Moed – $189,632
3rd: Paul Sokoloff – $131,110
4th: David Hass – $94,559
5th: Patrick Curzio – $69,125
6th: Duy Ho – $51,198
7th: Dmitrii Shchepkin – $38,423
8th: Ivan Saul – $29,211
9th: Loren Klein – $22,484
