Adrian Apmann Wins Germany's First Bracelet Of 2015 WSOP

Adrian Apmann Wins Germany's First Bracelet Of 2015 WSOPFollowing a slow start to the 2015 WSOP, Germany has finally picked up its first bracelet of this year’s competition after Adrian Apmann took down Event #42: $1,500 No Limit Hold’em for $478,102. On his way to victory the 25-Year-Old poker pro had to first overcome a field of 1,914 players over four days, after which he commented:
“It’s unbelievable to be standing here right now. I had two deep runs and cashes earlier this year, but to get this far and win it, I really do not think I have realized it yet. I’m not sure I will be celebrating, though. It was really draining.”
The $1,500 No Limit Hold’em Extended Play event attracted a huge field to create a prize pool worth $2,583,900, and amongst the 198 players seeing a return on their buy-ins was Andre Akkari in 197th ($2,919), Blair Hinkle in 104th ($3,514), Andy Frankenberger in 100th ($3,514), Antonio Esfandiari in 40th ($9,457), Jonathan Little in 28th ($11,420), and Yevgeniy Timoshenko in 24th ($13,953).
Having reached the final phase of the tournament, Adrian Apmann then had to navigate past a tough final table which included WSOP bracelet winners Barney Boatman (UK) and Konstantin Puchkov (Russia). While Puchkov eventually fell in 7th place for $59,920, Barny Boatman managed to make it all the way to three-handed play, but was eliminated when his A-Q ran into the A-K of Apmann.
It was then left to France’s Yehoram Houri and Adrian Apmann to decide the ultimate winner, and thirty hands into heads-up play the defining hand was played with Houri all-in preflop holding 7-7 and up against the A-10 of his opponent. The A-10-9-5-5 board subsequently sealed the deal, and so Yehoram Houri had to settle for a runner-up finish worth $295,727, while Adrian Apmann won his first career gold bracelet.
Final Table Results:
1 Adrian Apmann $478,102
2 Yehoram Houri $295,727
3 Barny Boatman $204,464
4 Anthony Diotte $147,463
5 D.J. Buckley $107,800
6 Kurt Lichtman $79,842
7 Konstantin Puchkov $59,920
8 Artem Metalidi $45,554
9 Ross Gottlieb $35,063
