On the button, Cho decided to push with J 3 . Little did he know that Stucke would catch a playable hand with 7 7 . Stucke quickly called the all-in of Cho.

Stucke's pocket 7's held up, and he claimed victory in this hard-fought battle for the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em WSOP tournament!
David Stucke won the tournament, the coveted WSOP bracelet, and a whopping $603,069!

David Stucke and Young Cho tangled in a hand when Stucke limped in the small blind with pocket K's, Cho raised all-in from the big blind with A-Q, and Stucke quickly called. The board didn't help either player, and Stucke doubled up to become the new chip leader with 3 million in chips.
Several hands later came an oppportunity for Seth Weinger to attempt to get some chips back. He raised in the small blind, and David Stucke called from the big blind. When the flop showed 9 9 4 , Weinger bet 175,000, Stucke raised to 1 million, Weinger countered with an all-in move holding K 10 , and Stucke called with Q 5 .
The turn brought a 6 to give Stucke the flush, and the river was an inconsequential 4 .
Seth Weinger, the chip leader throughout most of the final table action, goes home in 3rd place with a nice payout of $246,478.
Going into heads-up action, the chip counts are:

Ium came back from the break with an aggressive attitude and took it into another hand with a raise on the button, but this time, Young Cho reraised all-in. Ium went into the tank for approximately five minutes, and someone finally called the clock on him. Before time ran out, he called with A 9 against Cho's 8 4 . The board came Q J 2 8 6 , and Cho's 8's win the hand to double him up. Ium was left with only 250,000.
On the very next hand, Ium moved all-in with J 5 , and Cho called in the small blind, but so did Weinger in the big blind. The flop came J 9 8 , Weinger bet with his J 8 , and Cho folded.
The turn was a 7 and the river an A , and Weinger's two pair won.
Michael Ium was eliminated in 4th place and left with $164,319.

Players have returned from a break and sit with the following chips:
Blinds are now 60,000/120,000 with a 15,000 ante.
Prior to the break, it became apparent that Weinger switched to conservative mode, even saying to his opponents that he wasn't getting any good cards. In light of this, he has continued to lose blinds and antes and now sits in second position after dominating throughout most of the final table thus far.
And Cho, on the other hand, has become more aggressive by picking his spots and building up his stack.

David Woo seemed to be ready to make a move. He moved all-in with pocket 3's but got no callers.
On the very next hand, Woo looked down at pocket Jacks and moved all-in again. This time, Michael Ium called with a better hand - pocket A's.
The board came 4 4 2 K 2 , and Woo's pocket Jacks are the ticket to the payout room.
David Woo leaves this final table in 5th place and goes to collect the $115,339 that he earned today.
