Recap For Event 3 ($500 + $60 No-Limit Hold'em)

Matthew Klein of Tiffin, Iowa, is the winner of Event 3, $500 + $60 No-Limit Hold'em, earning $48,844. Klein started the final day in the middle of the pack, but by the time the final table started with 10 players, Klein had taken the chip lead, and cruised to the victory. At one point at the final table, Klein had more than twice as many chips as anyone else.

Winner Matthew Klein (Tiffin, Iowa)

The tournament began on Friday with 373 players. The total buy-in for the event was $186,500, and the top 36 players would finish in the money. The field reached the money bubble shortly before midnight.

The biggest hand of Day 1 came during hand-for-hand play with 37 players left. Eugene Kleyman and Cedric Corum both checked to the river on a board of 6c 4 4 2 4. Then they got it all in -- both players had flopped a full house. Corum had 66 for sixes full, but Kleyman's 64 rivered quad fours to win the pot. Kleyman cashed but didn't survive the day, while Corum came back to make Day 2, finishing in 17th place ($1,538).

Day 2 began with 23 players, and Josh Emerson was in 22nd place. But he did much better than expected as he made the final table, finishing in 5th place for $10,492.

After Emerson's bustout, the tournament wrapped up rather quickly, with Matthew Klein coming out on top. Here's a look at the results for the final table:
