The first ever WSOP final table webcast resulted in Gary Styczynski's first WSOP cash and more important, first WSOP bracelet. Styczynski entered the final table with the chip lead and never relinquished the title en route to victory. As heads up play with Varouzhan Gumroyan began, the chip counts were almost identical, but the aggressive play of Styczynski allowed him to chip away from his opponent and earn the bracelet.

Of course a little luck doesn't hurt. Styczynski was able to hit a miracle river flush against his opponent's straight to solidify the chip lead. It was over less than an hour later. Styczynski earned $280,715 for the victory, while Gumroyan's second place finish paid $177,627.
