World Series of Poker -- Trevor Pope Wins $5,000 Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Pope Earns First Gold Bracelet and $553,906


Trevor PopeThe final table of event no. 2, the $5,000 eight-handed no-limit hold’em tournament at the 2013 World Series of Poker was a murderer’s row of top, young poker talent, but seven of the eight competitors really never stood a chance.

Trevor Pope entered the final table with roughly half of the chips in play and utilized them brilliantly en route to eliminating six opponents, making quick work to earn his first gold bracelet and the $553,906 first-place prize.

The 26-year-old poker pro topped a field of 481 players who created a total prize pool of $2,260,700. The final 56 players made the money, banking at least $8,432.

Pope was nice enough to acknowledge his star-studded final table in his winner’s interview.

“I knew every person at the final table, except for the player who was heads up with me (David Vamplew),” said Pope. “D-Fish (Daryll Fish) is one of my best friends. A couple of weeks ago, we were living together. It was such a cool moment to be able to share this final table experience. He’s a good friend and a good person. DJK (Dan Kelly) was also one the players I feared the most, so I was glad to see him bust out early. DJK is definitely one of the top five tournament players in the world in my opinion. He is wiling to do things other people don’t do and put you in spots you don’t see very often.”

Here is a look at the final table results.
