The World Championship Seven Card Stud event was Phil Ivey's chance to further cement himself in poker history by winning his sixth bracelet. Instead, it was Chris Reslock who won his first bracelet with his first ever WSOP seven card stud cash. Reslock, winner of a WSOP Circuit event, now has five WSOP cashes in addition to his five WSOP circuit cashes. Reslock's best previous finish was 36th in a $2,000 Omaha event in 2006.

Ivey was second in chips entering heads-up play thanks to Reslock's elimination of David Oppenheim who was the chip leader entering the final table. Reslock finished the job when Ivey's two pair could not catch up to Reslock's trips when he moved all-in on sixth street just six hands into heads-up action.
