Event #34 $1,000 Double Stack attracted 6,214 and a prize pool worth over $5.5 million. Joe Cheong finally won his first bracelet with a big win the Double Stack. He banked $687,782 plus the bling. Robert Mitchell won his first bracelet with a victory in Event #37 $800 NL Deepstack outlasting a field of 2,808 for a score worth $297,537.

The 2019 World Series of Poker continued with a couple long-ass events that finally played down to a champion. Those included Event #34 $1K NL Doublestack and Event #37 NL Deepstack. Along the way, one of the best players to never win a bracelet finally got the proverbial monkey off his back. Joe Cheong, won three Circuit rings, but finally stepped inside the WSOP winner's circle for the first time in his career. And it was a long time coming for 'subiime'.

Event #34 $1,000 Double Stack - Final Results


Heading into the final day of action, six players remained and everyone wondered if this would be the day that Joe Cheong finally ships a bracelet? He first made a name for himself online as "subiime" and later made the November Nine. But he never won any bling.

Cheong came into the final day with a significant chiplead over the other final five players as the only player with 100M in chips.

Event #34 attracted 6,214 runners and a prize pool that topped nearly $5.6 million.

Only the top 932 places paid out with most of the cheesecake set aside to the champion and the Top 3.

The final table featured Brick Wilson, Ivan Deyra, David Gray, Joe Cheong, Ido Ashkenazi, Andrea Bouoncore, Zinan Xu, David Ivers, and Arianna Son.

On the final day, Ido Ashkenazi hit the bricks first in sixth place. Arianna Son's epic run ended when she busted in fifth place. Son banked $176K for fifth place.

Italy's Andrea Buonocore bounced in fourth place. At that point, it seemed like the bracelet was Cheong's to lose.

At that point, the remaining pack caught up to Cheong. Ivers snagged the lead... momentarily. Cheong got it right back.

China's Zinan Xu busted in third place, which paid out a whopping $314,875. Not too shabby, eh? With Xu's bustout, it set up the heads-up fight between Cheong and Ivers.

Ivers trailed nearly 3-1 in chips when heads-up began. It only took 36 hands for Cheong to put away Ivers.

Ivers earned a runner-up score worth $424,791.

Cheong banked $687,782 and he got to finally slap a bracelet around his wrist.

David Dibernardi bubbled off the final table in tenth place.

Notables who cashed in the Double Stack and went ultra-deep into the Top 250 included... Noah Bronstein, Tim West, Jack Sinclair, Jimmy Guerrero, Ari Engel, Siamon Deadman, Nick Yunis, Steven van Zadelhoff, Darren Rabinowitz, Ramzi Jelassi, Tyler Patterson, David "The Dragon" Pham, Dylan Linde, Dan Park, Eric Baldwin, Dan O'Brien, Marvin Rettenmaier, ODB Baker, Faraz Jaka, Yao Yin, and Xi Yang.

Event #37 $800 NL Deepstack - Final Results

Only the top 420 places paid out with the majority of the cheesecake set aside for the champ.
