A 417-player field was narrowed down to 8 after 4 days of poker at the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California. These 8 players played the final table last night and battled for some serious cash! After many hours of poker, Joe Hachem and Victor Ramadin were the last two men standing.
It was a very interesting heads-up match where both players played extremely well. However, after some time of play, Ramadin took the lead with 8.5m against Hachem's 3.7m chips. Then it didn't take long before Hachem was eliminated - after losing an all-in (pre-flop) with AK vs AJ. Ramdin flopped 2 pairs and the turn and river card was to no help to the 2005 WSOP Main Event Champ.
A big congrultations to the Victor Ramadin, The Big Event Main Event Champion ($500,000).
