The $5,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em event at the 2014 World Series of Poker attracted 696 entrants and created a total prize pool of $3,271,200. The field was so large that an unscheduled fourth day of action was necessary to determine a winner.

After all was said and done, David Miscikowski emerged with the victory, his first gold WSOP bracelet and a massive payday of $719,707. The 28-year-old online grinder hasn’t had much success in the live arena, but all of that changed Saturday night.

“It feels great,” Miscikowski said. “This is one of the biggest sweats I’ve ever had. It feels nice to come through.”

Miscikowski overcame a 4-1 chip deficit during heads-up play against Hungarian bracelet winner Norbert Szecsi. Other notables at the final table included Blake Bohn (9th), John Dolan (8th), Jean Gaspard (7th), Kevin MacPhee (6th) and Manig Loeser (3rd).

Other notables to make a deep run in the event included Josh Arieah (12th), Jason Koon (13th), Jeremy Kottler (15th) and Tony Gargano (16th).

Here is a look at the final table results.
