The Most Dramatic Wins (3)


The World Series of Poker is the most important and prestigious tournament in poker.  Over the years, the competition has been famous for a good number of dramatic hands and victories.  Each year, the tournament provides some very tense and entertaining poker games, and the World Series of Poker 2004 was certainly no exception.  The tournament was characterized by the entry of many relatively unknown poker players.  TV viewing was also at an all-time and high and of course, the overall prize money was in the tens of millions of Dollars. The final table of number 9 was no doubt one of the venues of the most dramatic poker wins.  At the time of this particular poker game, the tournament was well into its 20th hour at 9.30 pm on a Saturday evening.  The newcomers who had all played extremely well to get that far were now preparing themselves to do battle once more for their first ever golden bracelet.


The prize money for this tournament was the highest it had ever been; hence, the stakes were very high indeed.  It was clear that this final number 9 table was poised to for some tense drama when seven players were eliminated from the table within the first 2 hours of the game commencing.  At this point, there were now only two players that had to vie it out for that golden bracelet.  The next few hours were to host a very exciting and hard-fought poker game.  The two players were Joe Awata and Scott Fischman.  The climax of the game and perhaps of the tournament occurred when Scott Fischman made a key hand in the game and caught “runner runner”. This automatically meant he had just won almost a million Dollars in prize money.  The entire crowd was elated and there was an electric buzz in the air.  On the other hand, Joe Awata could do nothing but just sit there in dismay, still not believing what had just happened. 


For most of the game and during the final stages, Joe Awata had the chip advantage of Fischman.  When Fischman moved “all in” and Awata called, it looked as though the chip advantage he had was sure now to win him the golden bracelet.  However, to Awata’s and the rest of the crowd’s surprise, a nine fell, which meant that the board was paired.  This gave Fischman an aggregate of nine outs and with it, the victory.  The crowd went wild as they just witnessed Fischman do something that was completely improbable.  The two pair on the board and the ace he had in his hand was more than enough to beat Awata’s cards.  The 20-1 chip lead Fischman now had more or less ensured that he would win the top prize.  Not too long after that, he did in fact win the game with A-6 as against A-7.  The final board score read A-K-4-8-J.  Age the age of 23, Scott Fischman, a dealer from Philadelphia, became only the second youngest player ever to win a golden bracelet. 


This particular game of poker was definitely one of the most electric and dramatic games that the tournament had seen for many a year.  However, Greg Raymer’s victory in the World Series of Poker 2004 main event was also a highly dramatic win.  Raymer’s pocket eights gave him victory over David Williams A-4.  The win meant that he claimed the platinum bracelet along with $5 million.  The runner-up, David Williams claimed the second prize of $3.5 million.  There is no doubt that poker is becoming a very lucrative spectator sport, and the money obtained from TV will help increase prestige and popularity of the sport.
