Former WSOP Main Event runner up David Williams has $1.5m reasons to celebrate after winning the $25K WPT Championship event at the Bellagio over the weekend.
Williams steered his way through an exceedingly tough looking final table before beating Eric Baldwin heads up to seal the title. Irishman John O'Shea was the first of the six players at the final table to be eliminated but almost $200,000 in prize money should prove some consolation for the Dubliner.Billy Baxter went in fifth, his two pair running into Williams' Broadway straight. David Benyamine was the next to hit the rail, eliminated by Shawn Buchanan. The long time chip leader didn't survive much longer though. He looked in good shape holding pocket Queens to Williams' pocket nines but a nine on the flop gave the 2004 WSOP runner up a massive pot and eliminated the unfortunate Buchanan.Williams had a 4 to 1 chip lead going into heads up play with Eric Baldwin and once again a set would play a big part in the proceedings. Williams holding pocket deuces raised 500,000, Baldwin went all in for 4.765m holding Ah5h with Williams, after going into the tank eventually making the call.It looked like game on after a Ad7c6s flop but a 2h gave Williams a set and the victory. The former Magic The Gathering player collected $1.5m for the win with runner up Baldwin taking home $1,034,715 for his second placed finish.Faraz Jaka's 14th place finish earned him the WPT Player of the Year Award. The WPT heads to France next month for the Grand Prix de Paris at the Aviation Club from 8th to 15th May 2010. There are rumours of a WPT event in London later in the year but they're yet to be confirmed. We can but hope.
