Jason Gooch has won the latest online bracelet of the 2019 World Series of Poker. The 34-year-old poker pro from Texas outlasted a field of 1,333 entries to emerge victorious in the $1,000 WSOP.com Double Stack no-limit hold’em event, securing his first gold bracelet and the top prize of $241,493 for the win.

Playing under the screen name ‘TheBigGift’, Gooch battled it out for 10.5 hours to make the final table as the runaway chip leader. Gooch sat with over 12.2 million with nine players remaining, while his next nearest competitor Anthony ‘Scrotile’ Augustino had just over 6.3 million.

Max ‘MaxSparrow’ Pescatori was the first to fall at the final table. The Italian four-time bracelet winner earned $17,349 as the ninth-place finisher. Justin ‘Margarete’ Liberto lost a classic race with QHeart SuitQDiamond Suit failing to hold against the AClub SuitKDiamond Suit of Augustino. Liberto took home $22,541 as the eighth-place finisher.

Gooch did his best to keep pace with Augustino. He scored a huge knockout with AHeart SuitJClub Suit besting the KSpade SuitQSpade Suit of Dario “Sirio87” Sammartino. Neither player improved and Gooch’s ace high earned him the pot and the elimination. Sammartino was sent to the rail with $75,095 as the fourth-place finisher.

Brian ‘Pure__Reason’ Wood battled his way into the lead during three-handed play, then furthered his advantage by eliminating Augustino in third place ($104,980). Gooch was able to close the gap early on in heads-up play, and eventually took the lead. In the final hand, Gooch got all of the chips in holding trip fours for the best hand. Wood failed to improve and was knocked out in second place ($148,543).
