An excellent win for Omar Zazay who before this had only won $300,000 live tournament winnings in his poker career so he must be extremely happy to add a cool million on top after just 4 days of playing.
Posted by doubletop777: Many congratulations to Omar Zazay on winning the $1,000,000 first prize and the title. Daniel Colman deserves extra praise for going so deep in the defense of his title, well done to all
Also congrats 2 the runner up - that Phillis guy will never have to work as a dealer again in his life.

What a huge boost on Omar Zazay's lifetime poker tournament earnings this victory represented. He just multiplied by four everything he had won until now. Puting the hands to $1M in a poker table must be a huge feeling, even more when it's the first time. This would be that kind of moment of which i would like to have a photo from, but with the money on the table!

wow, omar zazay is a real menace at the poker tables, nevermind that i hear the first time about him- that doesn't make his win any less amazing. zazay has become one of the hottest properties in the online and offline poker world. girls are shouting his name and surname on the streets and children are crying from joy that they had a chance to peek at zazay...
