The Canadian Jason Duval won on Monday his first WSOP bracelet, following his victory during the No-Limit Hold'em, the Event 28 of these World Series of Poker 2013. The 23-year-old young man stood out in a $ 1,500 tournament which gathered 2,115 participants, among whom Liv Boeree or the champion of the WSOP 2010's Main Event, Jonathan Duhamel. The Day 3 of the event started with the 16 survivors of this poker tournament, who were still in the running for the golden bracelet and a prize of $ 521,202. After 11 hours of playing, Jason Duval enriched the row of the Canadian holders of bracelet of this year (Charles Sylvestre, Benny Chen, Michael Malm, Levi Berger, Mark Radoja and Calen McNeil) by standing out in front of the 8 other finalists of the tournament: Tommy Townsend, James Lee, Majid Yahyaei, Stephen Bartlett, Dan Martin, Joe Cappuccio, Masayuki Nagata and Daniel Bishop.
The eliminations quickly followed one after one for Joe Cappuccio, Daniel Bishop and Stephen Bartlett who were joined by Dan "Wretchy" Martin. Some hands later, Tommy Townsend, James Lee and Masayuki Nagata swelled the rank of the eliminated of the final table and left the final heads-up between Majid Yahyaei (5,025,000) and Jason Duval (4,495,000). Jason Duval catches up his delay and eliminates his opponent at the 174th hand. The Canadian has gone all-in after a check-raise at 650,000 of Yahyaei who hesitated before deciding to pay. But the turn was in favor of Jason Duval, in the poker room of Rio and he ends the event with $ 521,202, 1,080 points Player Of the Year and a title awarded by a bracelet. Having finished second at this event, Majid Yahyaei left the final table with a prize of $ 324,442.
