Ultimately, there was no stopping Friedman and he celebrated the victory with his parents on the rail. For his efforts, Friedman receives a top prize of $248,254 and becomes one of only 30 players to have earned at least five WSOP gold bracelets as he starts to enter some more and more exclusive territory in poker history.

Winner's Reaction

Friedman is one of the most dedicated and now also one of the most decorated mixed games players out there and in particular, seven card stud as he talked how much this particular title means to him.

“It is a real honor to be able to win this title with the players who have won it before me. Winning the stud high means more to me than winning my fifth in total for my own personal satisfaction. This is in my top three or four events. I have played thousands upon thousands of hours of this game. I have had really bad success in this event over the last several years and to close it out in my first real shot I have had is amazing.”

He also added, “To win bracelets in four straight years is incredible” alluding to his amazing run he has had in recent years to catapult himself higher up in the echelons of poker history discussions.

Friedman also promoted the game of seven card stud in his post win interview. “Two-card poker is boring like I keep saying. My ROI initially went down playing stud but I was enjoying playing poker again. Seven card stud is the most complicated limit game that has ever existed. There are more nuances than almost any other two games combined. It is a beautiful game. It is really a shame that it is dying more and more each year. I think if people really gave it a shot, people would enjoy it and see all the cool things that can happen. I don’t see a seven card stud renaissance happening, but I truly hope I am wrong.”

Action of the Day

The day began at the final table of eight players with seven of the final eight already having at least one WSOP bracelet to their name, many of them with multiple ones.

Yueqi Zhu was the first to exit after about 30 minutes, as he could not get anything going and bowed out in eighth place.

James Paluszek was the next to go in seventh place and Marco Johnson followed him out the door in sixth place just ten minutes later.

In fifth place was Ben Diebold as he was able to ladder up a couple of spots with his short stack.

From there the stacks evened out as the remaining four players had some play in their stacks. Yuval Bronshtein went out in fourth place after he had been knocking on the door of the top two stacks at one point but a string of lost pots saw him go from that high to the short stack and eventually out the door.

Three-handed play gathered a large rail as most of the onlookers were watching Phil Ivey aim for his eleventh bracelet. Ivey had entered the day as the shortest stack but fought tooth and nail to raise his stack to the middle and eventually last all the way till three-handed. He was able to rake in some pots three-handed to make things interesting but he would soon lose a few big pots to Friedman to kill his momentum and eventually end his bid to end his eight-year bracelet drought.

Heads-Up play would then commence as Friedman had a huge chip lead over Gaspard, who at one point was close to being neck and neck in chips with Friedman but lost some ground in three-handed play that got him down to a big chip disadvantage entering heads-up. Gaspard was not able to gain much traction as his brief resurgence was quickly squashed by Friedman who then finished it off in about 40 minutes of heads-up play.

That wraps things up for the PokerNews coverage of this event. Continue to follow as there will be plenty more WSOP action to come.

Adam Friedman raised on third street and Jean Gaspard said "let's get it in" and raised enough to put himself all in.

Friedman had the lead with a pair of kings. The cards were dealt to each player. At the river, Gaspard was needing an ace for a better pair or a three for the wheel. But it was the {j-Diamonds} to miss everything and just like that Friedman was the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Champion.

Adam Friedman: {x-}{x-} / {9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{a-Spades}{k-Spades} / {x-}

Jean Gaspard completed with a queen and Adam Friedman called with a nine. Gaspard bet fourth and fifth street to earn a call and then checked sixth, as did Friedman. Gaspard check-called seventh and was shown the {q-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a pair of nines by Friedman.

"Nines as well, ace kicker ..." Gaspard told his rail as he sent the cards into the muck.

What followed were half a dozen hands that didn't go past fourth street including one in which Gaspard was the bring-in with the {k-Clubs} and Friedman folded the {a-Spades} while adding "tight is right" with a smirk on the face.

Jean Gaspard: {x-}{x-} / {9-Clubs}{4-Spades}{q-Spades}{10-Spades} / {x-}
Adam Friedman: {x-}{x-} / {8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{2-Hearts} / {x-}

Friedman then completed and Gaspard called. On fourth street, Friedman bet and called a raise by Gaspard, who then bet his lead on fifth and received a call. They checked sixth and Gaspard bet seventh street, triggering a raise by Friedman.

While grabbing his cards and studying them with a smile on the face, Gaspard "tanked" the longest in the heads-up duel so far for around ten seconds before paying it off. Friedman announced a flush and tabled the {k-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades} in order to further increase his lead.

Gaspard On a Roll to Reduce Friedman's Lead

[user38873] • Nivo 21

Jean Gaspard has won three hands in a row to cut into the large lead of Adam Friedman and even taunted his opponent in the process.

Two hands in particular stood out and happened as follows.

Jean Gaspard: {x-}{x-} / {9-Spades}{j-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Adam Friedman: {x-}{x-} / {5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{10-Spades} fold on fifth

Gaspard completed and Friedman called. Gaspard bet his lead on fourth to earn a call and then bet fifth. Friedman raised and snap-folded when Gaspard made it three bets. "Oh man, are you for real?" Gaspard joked.

Adam Friedman: {x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{q-Spades}{2-Diamonds} / {x-}
Jean Gaspard: {x-}{x-} / {5-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} / {x-}

Friedman then completed and called a raise by Gaspard, who bet fourth and received a call. Friedman then bet his lead on fifth to seventh street and two quick calls by Gaspard were followed by a reluctant one.

Friedman didn't table his down cards but instead pointed to the other side of the table.

"You can't beat two fives? Oh wow, he is done ..." Gaspard joked to his rail while flashing his {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}. He then followed that up with a "I don't like your odds now ... I don't like your odds."

In the next hand thereafter, a similar pattern emerged but Gaspard folded a pair of fours this time with his open cards showing {4-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} against the {4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{q-Hearts} of Friedman.

Friedman Pulls Further Ahead

[user38873] • Nivo 21

Adam Friedman won two of the first three bigger hands in heads-up play against Jean Gaspard to extend his lead. The first one was with a pair of nines and the second was with a pair of fives only as Gaspard showed he had faded a straight and flush draw.

Adam Friedman: {x-}{x-} / {4-Spades}{2-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} / {x-}
Jean Gaspard: {x-}{x-} / {k-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{q-Hearts} / {x-}

Gaspard completed and Friedman called to then call a bet by Gaspard on fourth. Gaspard bet fifth for Friedman to raise and receive a call. On sixth, Gaspard check-called a bet with three hearts showing and they checked seventh.

Friedman exposed the {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs} for just the pair of fives but it was good enough to win the pot.

Moments after losing the big pot and being left with fumes, Phil Ivey was all-in and at risk on third street against Jean Gaspard. While he started with random cards only, Gaspard made running two pair until sixth street while Ivey failed to improve with his pair of kings. Gaspard bricked seventh but so did Ivey in order to finish in 3rd place.
