The bracelet, for me, is a dream," said the delighted German, who plays "for fun" and is a retired investor from Dusseldorf. This is the greatest day of my life.
He had reason to be pleased - among the final table aces he bested were professional players Josh Arieh and Nicolas Levi, along with Vincent Maglio, Dan Owen, Sergey Lebedev, Kirill Rabtsov, Nicolas Faure and Sebastien Comel.
The event was one of several this year that had to run to extra time as Tiechert and Vincent Maglio battled it out in a taut heads up that ran to an extra day.
After the fourth day restart the German quickly leveraged a slight chip lead to finish Maglio off and send him home with a consolatory $452,008 after about an hour of intense action.
It was Tiechert's first WSOP bracelet and his biggest prize money yet, although he has competed and cashed in World Poker Tour and European Poker Tour events in the past.


LATEST WSOP RESULTS
2013-06-26

Norbert Szecsi and Jesse Martin have become the latest players to take home a WSOP bracelet.

22-year-old Szecsi was the first to feel the cold press of a winners bracelet on his wrist after he finished top in Event 42, a $1,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em affair.

Having outlasted more than 2,000 players to get to the final table, the Hungarian pro managed to survive the early pace set by chip leader Rory Mathews to snatch the chip lead and take down the title.

Indeed, while Mathews slipped away in fifth place, Szecsi was able to scoop chips from the likes of Kirby Martin and Chris DeMaci before halting Denis Gnidashs progress. Despite requesting a 90-minute dinner break, the pair was told to play on and after just seven hands the match was over.
While Szecsi was celebrating, Martin was busy besting a tough final table in Event 43, the $10,000 buy-in 2-7 no-limit draw lowball event.
Despite being the smallest field of the Series so far at just 87 players, an elite selection of pros were among the runners competing in the specialised event.
The start of the finale saw Martin flanked by top talent but he was able to solidify his position at the top of the chip counts as the likes of Layne Flack, Jon 'PearlJammer' Turner and Jeff Lisandro slipped away.
By the time Konstantin Puchkov had hit the rail in third, Martin was able to overcome David 'Bakes' Baker to claim his first WSOP bracelet and $253,524.
Final results from WSOP Event #42 ($1,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em):
1 Norbert Szecsi $345,037
2 Denis Gnidash $214,760
3 Chris DeMaci $149,281
4 Kirby Martin $107,512
5 Rory Mathews $78,576
6 Bryce Landier $58,126
7 Ariel Celestino $43,564
