With The EconomyTM still taking it’s toll and the 2009 WSOP depleting everyone’s bankroll, there’s a decent chance you’ll see registration across the board continue to slide for WPT events.
The Bellagio Cup V concluded yesterday, with Alex Gomes winning his first WPT title and banking $1,187,670. Still another new WPT millionaire, but those top prizes are dwindling. Gomes, who won a WSOP bracelet last year, is a Team Poker Stars pro from Brazil.
In second was Faraz ‘The-Toilet’ Jaka with $774,780. Erik Seidel, who dubbed this the “toughest final table” in WPT history, finished sixth for $164,640.
