$10K Championship Horse Player Field Full of Gold Makes First-Time Winner

Written by Beatrix | Sunday, June 29th, 2014

Winner of Event #22 $10K H.O.R.S.E. Chris Wallace is now half a million dollars richer after besting a 200-player field and bringing home the bracelet. This was the fifth of 13 $10K championship events at the  2014 WSOP in Las Vegas, Nevada’s Rio All Suite Hotel Casino. And the competition wasn’t soft either. The final table was full of bracelets, six in fact, and only one player had never made it to a WSOP final table—Wallace.

The heads up was short and sweet as Wallace took the gold from Randy Ohel, though the final table spanned a long six-hour duration. Two-time bracelet winner Max Pescatori finished in fifth place, while Richard Ashby, who had just finished second to Brock Parker a week prior in the $10K Omaha Hi-Lo event, finished in fourth place, making his second championship final table appearance this year. Ashby is now in the running with Player of the Year leader Justin Bonomo, who cashed in 15th place in this event. Six-bracelet-winner Daniel Negreanu wasn’t far behind, landing an 18th-place finish, followed closely by Greg Mueller, 23rd, who has two bracelets as well.

Forty-year-old Wallace, who hails from St. Paul, Minnesota, said after winning, “When I would go on break and relax my hear would be racing. When I would get back to the table, I would be calm and focused.”

He continued, “If I was going to pick an event to win, this would be it. If feels great.”

With no more than 200 of the finest poker players in the business, which this event is known to attract, $1.88 million was amassed in the prize pool with only the top 24 finishers seeing a paycheck. Other notable finishers included one-time bracelet winners Nick Kost, 10th-place; David Benyamine, who finished in 11th place;  Tommy Hang, 13th; Bertrand Grospellier, who finished in 16th; and Calvin Anderson, who finished in eighth place. Finishing seventh was two-time bracelet winner Bill Chen, whose career WSOP earnings total more than $1.65 million and fellow two-time-winner Nick Schulman finished in 14th place.
