Amnon Filippi Wins Bellagio Challenge Cup

For those of you constantly refreshing your browser in eager anticipation of discovering the winner of the Bellagio Challenge Cup (kidding), here you have it…Amnon Filippi.

Ok so Filippi, in our best consultant-speak, wasn’t the "sexiest" name in the field.  While he has cashed in a number of WPT events (and one WSOP event this year), he’s no Phil Ivey, Scotty Nguyen, T.J. Cloutier, Cyndy Violette…heck he’s not even a Tobey Maguire.  But you know what he is?  About $364,200 richer than we are (not to mention proud owner of an actual Bellagio crystal cup). 

Quinn Do finished second, earning $228,850.
