By: Andrew Burnett

Canadian Hempel was among 697 players who produced 987 entries between them, combining to make a $937,650 prizefund that would see the top 143 cash.

Among that number were two bracelet winners over the past week,  Jonathan 'art.vandelay' Dokler (107th for $1,687.77) and Ryan 'joeyisamush' Depaulo (84th for $1,969.06), with all-time bracelet record-holder, Phil 'Lumestackin' Hellmuth, finishing 97th for $1,781.53.

The PokerBrat’s exit came at the hands of Alex Rocha, pocket aces delivering a double KO…

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Alex 'rip_neiko' Rocha: A♦ A♥
Darryll 'passtheshuga' Fish: K♠ 9♠
Phil 'Lumestackin' Hellmuth: 8♥ 8♠
Flop: 9♥ 3♥ A♣
Turn: 3♦
River: 6♥

Come the final table, and for Hempel it was two in a row, having finished 7th in the $777 buy-in event 17, worth $22,250 to the Ontario man.

Things would get even better, producing big hands when required…

Scott 'BudLightLime' Hempel: K♥ K♠
Harrison 'harrisond33' Dobin: A♥ K♣
Board: Q♠ 6♥ Q♦ 6♠ 4♠

…knocking out Dobin in 7th, and then taking out Barry Hutter in 5th when the river completed his flopped gutshot…

Scott 'BudLightLime' Hempel: A♠ Q♠
Barry 'puigmyfriend' Hutter: J♠ 10♠
Board: 8♥ 7♣ K♦ K♠ 9♠

Not content with that, Hempel rampaged his way through the final three opponents, hitting whatever was required, finishing things off with a heads-up battle against Myles Kotler

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Myles 'Shipthemoney' Kotler: K♠ 10♣
Scott 'BudLightLime' Hempel: 10♦ 10♠
Board: J♠ 8♥ 6♠ J♥ A♣

That was enough for the gold bracelet and $181,060, with Hempel also having the WPT L.A. Poker Classic Main Event final table to look forward to when live poker tournaments resume.
