World Series of Poker -- Martin Finger Wins $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Austrian Pro Banks $506,764 For The Victory


Martin FingerEvent no. 21 of the 2013 World Series of Poker, the $3,000 buy-in six-handed no-limit hold’em tournament, drew a field of 807 entrants, creating a total prize pool of $2,205,840.

After three days of play, it was Austria’s Martin Finger who came out on top, scoring a $506,764 payday and his first career gold bracelet. Finger won the EPT Prague main event in 2011, meaning he is now two-thirds of the way to earning poker’s triple crown.

The 22-year-old poker pro defeated a stacked final table that included David Pham, Matt Berkey and eventual runner-up finisher Matt Stout.

Finger, who says he will now use this prize money to play in the $111,111 buy-in Big One For One Drop, was ecstatic to win the title after a long heads-up battle.

“It was really tough,” he explained. “I feel really tired after all this. It was like a dream for me. It was a long way to get from there to here and first place. It feels good.”

In addition to the bracelet and the prize money, Finger also received 1,368 Card Player Player of the Year points. When added to the 800 points he got for finishing runner up in a Aussie Millions preliminary event earlier this year, he now has 2,168 points, good enough for sixth place overall.

Here is a look at the final table results.
