The Omaha Pot-Limit event in 2009's World Series of Poker attracted not less than 295 players who paid the buy-in of $10,000. Matt Graham came to be the last man standing after knocking out Vitaly Lunkin. For the win Graham received $679,379 and a well deserved WSOP bracelet.

When there were only 25 players left out of 295, it seemed like it would be a long, long day before the final table could be played. But player after player got knocked out and it didn't take long before it was time for the final table. A final table that included some great poker players (Vitaly Lunkin the most notable one) and also 2 poker players from Sweden (Ferit Gabrielsson & Stefan Mattsson) that could give Swedish poker some well deserved attention instead of only hearing about their neighbour country Denmark's great success in the world of poker lately. Once the final table started it came to be a tough battle that took enormous amounts of concentration and focus. Matt Graham and Vitaly Lunkin came to be the last men standing thanks to their aggressive style that worked out well for them although the tournament. But as we all know, there can be only 1 winner, and this time it came to be Matt Graham who recived $679,379 in first prize. Vitaly Lunkin got $419,832 for his second place and he continues to impress in WSOP 2009.

very good players ,, they are both very good =)
i saw matt graham some days ago in german tv, i like how he plays , i mean every pro who is shown in tv is good but he is one of my favorit =)
i want also to know if they start playing poker like most of us do in the internet or if most of them have rich family background to spend so much money on poker ???? if someone could tell me ,, that would be fine
