The UK's John Kabbaj might not be as active on the live tournament scene as he once was but when the WSOP rolls around he always seems to pull something out of his hat.
Having last bagged a bracelet back in 2009, the London based pro managed to claim another piece of WSOP glory last night after he took down Event #25. The $2,500 Omaha/ Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Split-8 or Better tournament attracted 470 runners on Tuesday and after two days of grinding it was Kabbaj who managed to scoop the $267,327 top prize. As expected many of the game's "old school" were out in force in the non-Hold'em event and as the field thinned the likes of Mike Matusow, Tom Schneider and Erik Seidel all made it deep. However, when it came down to decided a winner it was Kabbaj and Thomas Keller left playing for the title. A 2:1 chip lead for Keller at the start of the match put him on the front foot and after two defining hands during a round of Stud he was able to take full control and finish Keller offer just a few minutes later. The victory signified Kabbaj's second WSOP title and another notch on his already impressive résumé which now boasts almost $3 million in live earnings. Event #25 Final Result:1st. John Kabbaj - $267,3272nd. Thomas Keller - $165,1773rd. Christopher McHugh - $105,0004th. Terrence Hastoo - $75,7135th. Joe Tehan - $55,4516th. Erik Seidel - $41,2307th. Mike Leah - $31,1158th. Tom Schneider - $23,833
