The winner of the first-ever World Series of Poker $2,500 10-game mix six-handed event is Chris Lee . Lee beat out his final two competitors after Sunday’s restart to capture his first bracelet and the $255,000 first-place prize.In his first career WSOP cash, Lee outlasted an elite field of 431 entrants and survived a tough final table which include the likes of John D’Agostino , Shaun Deeb , and eventual runner-up Brian Haveson . Deeb, who is a regular in the big mix cash games at Aria, held a massive chip lead at one point during the final table, but he hit the rail in fourth during the no-limit hold’em round.The mix, which included no-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, deuce-to-seven triple-draw lowball, limit hold’em, Omaha eight-or-better, razz, seven-card stud, seven-card stud eight-or-better, badugi, and no-limit deuce-to-seven lowball, was a success for the finalists, as well as the WSOP , and should return in the future.Below are the elimination hands, as featured in Card Player’s live updates:John D’Agostonio Eliminated in 6th Place ($32,200)PLOJohn D’Agostino began the official six-handed final table as the short stack and was the first one to go in 6th place.John D’Agostino got it all in before the flop with A Q 10 7 against Chris Lee’s K K 10 5 .Lee was ahead before the flop with a pair of kings.
