In ended up being a very exciting final table in the Spring Championship of Online Poker #6-High ($1,050 NL Draw) event as both Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier were on it.

Negreanu, who has reached several final tables both online and live this year but failed to win, didn't win this time either and instead it was Roberto Greco who laid hands on the title and the first prize of $22,890. Negreanu received $15,330 for his efforts.
