It took three days of play for a field of 345 players to be narrowed down to a winner in Event #34: Seven Card Stud ($1,500 buy-in). Eric Buchman, who's probably best known for his 4th place finish for $2.5m in the 2009 Main Event that was won by Joe Cada, received his second bracelet along with $118,785 in prize money for wining the tournament - less than 24 hours after the 2009 Main Event Champ Joe Cada won his second bracelet.
"Late last night when I got home and I looked online, I saw [Joe] won the bracelet. I didn't think it really had anything to do with me, but I did think it would be sweet if I won one also. Even though he's won a lot more money than me, we're still two bracelets to two bracelets," Buchman said with a smile.
