We love cheesy/obvious newspaper headlines, and often try to think of what kind of headline a major event will have (it’s practically how we make our Kentucky Derby picks).
Anyway, we figured it was about 100% that “A masterful win…” would be somehere in the lead for Men “The Master” Nguyen‘s victory in Event #10 ($10,000 7CS), and the wsop.com obliged with the sub-head: “A Masterful Win in the 2010 Seven Card Stud World Championship.”
The victory gave Nguyen $394,807 and his 7th WSOP bracelet (crazy, right?), meaning he’s now just as good of a poker player as Phil Ivey* and Billy Baxter, tying them for fifth most overall.
Nguyen defeated the recently-on-60-Minutes Brandon Adams ($243,958) heads-up for the title.
Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi finished sixth ($68,949).
