:: Event #7 ($1,000 NLH) – Perhaps the best final table ever for a $1k buy-in event saw Matt Waxman defeat Eric Baldwin in what we’d call an “epic” heads-up battle had Epic Poker not forever ruined the word “epic” as it relates to “poker” for the industry. Maxman earns just over $305k and his first bracelet. With the second place finish, Baldwin falls just short of his second bracelet. He earns $189,200. Get full final table results here.
