Thursday, 21 July 2011

With the November Nine dominating the poker world these past few days it was easy to overlook the latest edition of the $10,000 Bellagio Cup where the not so small matter of almost $2.3m was up for grabs.

In the end it was Elio Fox who outlasted the stacked 224-runner field to take home the $669,692 first prize as well as a seat in the WPT Championship worth $25,000. The Californian outfoxed a final table that included Ted Forrest and regular EPT casher William Thorson before beating Hafiz Khan heads up.

Other notables to make the money included Isaac Haxton (26th), David Benyamine (24th), ElkY (23rd), Tom Marchese (15th), Nick Schulman (13th), David Williams (11th) and Brandon Cantu (9th).

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1 Elio Fox $669,692
2 Hafiz Khan $379,460
3 William Thorson $288,350
4 Brandon Meyers $150,311
