William Brindise Wins the 2009 United States Poker Championship

Poker player William Brindise won the 2009 US Poker Championship (USPC) Main Event at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City on November 26th, 2009. But winning the $261,800 dollars 1st place cash prize was no easy task.

Brindise, who is a resident of Rumson, New Jersey, about an one and a half up the Atlantic shore from the Trump Taj Mahal, had to outwit one of the poker circuit's decorated players to take home the title.

But as if defeating Men "The Master" Nguyen and his $9.5 million dollars in total poker career earnings was not enough, the final table of the USPC also featured 2009 WSOP (world series of poker) bracelet winner Brian Lemke an WSOP final tablist and Deep Stack Extravaganza III $5,000 dollars champion Nick Binger.

Lemke and Binger finished in 5th and 6th place respectively. The $5,000 dollars four-day event attracted 154 participants creating a cash pool of $770,000 dollars. Brindise now counts almost $400,000 dollars in total poker career earnings including a win in the $500 Trump Classic in 2005 and a good run in the World Series of Poker Main Event in 2004.

Unlike the 2008 USPC edition, the 2009 United States Poker Championship was once again covered for television and is set to air in January 2010 on Spike TV.
