Another Saturday night at the Rio in Las Vegas. Two more bracelets were on the line. Andrew 'Lucky Chewy' Lichtenberger only had one player standing in his way of his first title. Lucky Chewy picked off Aussie Craig Blight in second place to win Event #52 $3,000 NL. Chewy is one of the most popular players in the game and he's also considered "one of the best of the best 20-somethings from the peak of the American online poker boom in the mid-00s who had yet to win a bracelet." Ship it to Chewy.

Meanwhile, seemed like the entire Le clan was on the rail to cheer on Allan Le and his tremendous victory in Event #53 $1,500 Mixed PLO/8; Omaha 8 and Big O. Le thwarted Gavin Smith's comeback attempt. Smith finished in fourth place, while Le marched to victory.

Meanwhile, it's the Fourth of July holiday, so it's a holiday Monday in America. The Crazy Eights event should play down to a winner. Plus the 50K Poker Players Championship has hit its third day of action. Justin Bonomo is the chip leader with 42 players left in the hunt for the PPC crown.


Event #52 $3,000 NL - Final Results


This 3K NL event needed a fourth day to determine a winner.

The final day was a heads-up bout between: Andrew 'Lucky Chewy' Lichtenberger vs. Australia's Craig Blight. Chewy held a 3-1 edge over Blight at the onset and was never really in jeopardy. The Aussie busted in second place and Lucky Chewy finally shipped his first WSOP bracelet, much to the delight of his friends on the rail.

"It feels amazing to win this," Chewy said. "I've been playing the World Series since 2009 and I've been watching it since I was a kid when I saw Chris Moneymaker win is so it feels amazing."
