WPT Festa al Lago will be going on for 6 days and the main event final table will be played next Wednesday.

There are lots of side events for those who don't do so well in the main event or simply decide not to play it. For some strange reason there is no high roller event this time, but the WPT crew has promised many $5,000 events.

Tommy Vedes from New York had a really tough fight for the win on the final table. Many times he almost went out, but then got very lucky on the river. In one of the key pots that brought him to the top, he was all-in with A-10 versus A-J and got a 10 on the river. Down to heads-up Vedes had a massive chip lead with over 13 million chips against his final opponent Jason Lavellee's 2.5 million chips.

This is how the final hand was played out (Blinds: 100,000/200,000 - Ante: 20,000).

Lavellee moves all-in with 2,775,000, and Vedes quickly calls with K[d]Q[d]. Lavellee shows 8[h]6[h]. The flop comes A[d]9[s]5[c], and Lavellee picks up a gutshot straight draw. The turn card is Q[c]. At this point Lavellee only have four 7's that can give him the pot. The river card is a Q[s], and everything is over. Tommy Vedes received $1,218,225 for the win, and Jason Lavellee $795,150.

Final table results:
1st: Tommy Vedes - $1,218,225
2nd: Jason Lavallee - $795,150
3rd: Craig Crivello - $477,090
4th: Freddy Deeb - $278,300
5th: Jason Burt - $208,725
6th: Shawn Cunix - $168,970
