WSOP 2013: Belgium's Davidi Kitai Wins Bracelet Number 2

WSOP 2013: Belgium's Davidi Kitai Wins Bracelet Number 2Belgium’s Davidi Kitai has won the WSOP $5,000 Pot Limit Hold’em (event #19), after besting a field of 195 players over three days to capture a gold bracelet, and collect the $224,560 first place prize.
With his latest victory, Davidi Kitai takes his WSOP bracelet tally to two, the other coming in 2008 at the $2,000 Pot Limit Hold’em event for $244,583. In addition, Kitai, who cashed in at his first live tournament in 2006, now boasts $3,386,021 in casino earnings, to go with the $448,657 he has won online under the screen name ‘Legrouzin.’
Following his win at the Rio in Las Vegas, the Belgium pro has already turned his attention to further poker glory, and commented: “My dream is to reach the final table of the Main Event at the World Series. But I can never dream [of it], it won’t be easy with the big fields,” before adding; “I would like to make a double Triple Crown. Then after, maybe a triple Triple Crown.”
The $5,000  Pot Limit Hold’em tournament attracted a small but tough field of pros to create a prize pool worth $916,500. Amongst the notable names cashing in at the event was Amit Makhija in 27th ($7,881), Paul Volpe in 25th ($7,881), Jason Mercier in 22nd ($7,881), John Hennigan in 15th ($12,601), and Dan Kelly in 12th ($16,011). The final table, too, featured many top pros and after Dario Minieri was eliminated in 8th ($26,468), Bertrand Grospellier in 7th ($34,341), and Eugene Katchalov in 5th ($58,912), Davidi Kitai (9-9) subsequently scored a double-elimination over Dimitar Danchev (Q-5) and Vincent Bartello (A-Q), to go heads-up against Cary Katz.
The final hand was then played with Katz (K-K) and Kitai (J-J) all-in preflop, and after the board rolled out J-6-8-7-A, Davidi Kitai was crowned the WSOP Event #19 champion.
The final table payouts were as follows:
1 Davidi Kitai – $224,560
2 Cary Katz – $138,794
3 Vincent Bartello – $103,628
4 Dimitar Danchev – $77,893
5 Eugene Katchalov – $58,912
6 Kristina Holst – $44,844
7 Bertrand Grospellier – $34,341
