Mike Spiegel made his ninth wedding anniversary one to remember. Heading into the final table sixth in chips, Spiegel would need to pick his spots well in Event 4, the, $1,500 pot-limit hold 'em event. Chipping away early on, Spiegel stole the blinds repeatedly, ginding himself back up to second place with five players remaining. However, knocking on Jon Friedberg in third place was key as this was the first time he had taken over the chip lead from Gavin Smith.

Smith and Spiegel battled for 46 hands heads-up, and finally, Spiegel's A-10 was able to out draw Smith's 5-5 to crown a new champion. Spiegel earned, $252,290 for the victory in his second cash at the WSOP.
