Hevad Khan Wins 2008 Caesars Palace Classic

Friday, 31 October 2008

A total of 311 players entered this year's Caesars Palace Classic, with 19 returning for the second day of play. When the cards went in the air at 2pm, it took a little over three hours of play to reach the final table of ten, with none other than WPT announcer Mike Sexton the bubble boy in 11th.

The final table had a strong line-up, with Hevad Khan joined by John 'World' Hennigan and Adam Junglen. Khan did have a dominating chip lead over the next nearest competitor, with his 8.675 million stack dwarfing second-place Daniel Schreiber's 3.625 million. The eliminations of Hennigan and Junglen in 6th and 7th respectively left the way open for Khan to seize the title, which he eventually did after beating Michael Kamran heads-up at 3.15am local time. As far as we know, Khan didn't partake in any crazy dances involving chairs.

Here are the final-table results:

1st: Hevad Khan - $1,000,000
2nd: Michael Kamran - $520,320
3rd: Gary Freidlander - $266,073
4th: Jonathan Aguiar - $206,946
5th: Joseph Cordi - $177,382
6th: Adam Junglen - $147,818
7th: John Hennigan - $118,255
8th: Daniel Schreiber - $88,691
9th: Michael Fantini - $59,127
10th: Michael Katz - $35,746
