Men Nguyen and Pascal LeFrancois Wins the Seven Card Stud Championship and Event#8 Titles

This weekend, some of the top players in the poker circuit arrived in Las Vegas to try and have a good run at the 2010 WSOP (world series of poker). The poker action was moving on at a fast pace and on June 6th, 2010, Sunday; Men Nguyen won the Seven Card Stud World Championship title.

The Seven Card Stud event is considered as one of the smaller poker events during the WSOP, with only 150 participants. The buy-in cost was $10,000 dollars but it was worth it for Nguyen, who won $394,807 dollars for his amazing run. Brandon Adams finished in 2nd place, taking home $243,958 dollars.

Michael Mizrachi had been the focus of spotlight for most of the poker tournament. Mizrachi was trying to win his 2nd World Championship event after winning the Player's Championship title earlier in the World Series of Poker. He finished in 6th place in the 7-Card Stud event.

Canadian poker pro Pascal LeFrancois also finished a successful run on Sunday when he won the title for Event#8, a No-Limit Holdem event with a $1,500 dollars buy-in cost, Max Steinberg finished in 2nd place and Kevin Howe in 3rd place.

LeFrancois won $568,974 dollars in the event that had 2,341 participants. Event#9 was the third poker event to reach its conclusion on Sunday, with James Dempsey taking home the Pot-Limit title. More than six thousand players paid the $1,500 dollars buy-in and Dempsey won $197,470 dollars.

Steve Chanthanbouasy had the chip lead for much of the event but finished in 2nd place in the end. Two poker events that started on June 4th, 2010, Friday and two more events from Saturday, June 5th, 2010 are still in progress.
