The end of the Spring Season 2007 brought new faces to the final table. Nadia Flynn finds her way through her first ten weeks, in 6th position, joined by Scott Youngman, the second "summer guy" ever to see a final table. Youngman's Spring Season play won him two consecutive first place wins and later in the season, a second place win, which combined, kept him in first place in the rankings until a ruthless redhead, Maryann Paura, pulls ahead with a third first place win in the tenth game, accompanied by a fourth place win. Paura slices and dices her way to the top of the rankings, starting her off with the biggest chip stack when the clock at the final table begins to count. The three are confronted by three bracelet holders at the final table; Tim Entwistle, Winter 05/06 Champion, Scott Lazarek, Spring Season 2006 Champion, and Rene' Rodriguez, Summer Season 2006 Champion. The question in everyone's mind was, will one of the three champs win a second bracelet and be the first to hold two? The first deal is delt and 6:41pm (Rodriguez holding it up for 11 minutes - but still failing to win the Phil Helmuth look-a-like contest). By 8:23pm, Flynn pushes with her pair of aces but Scott Lazarek finds a third 3 on the flop and eliminates Flynn to the 6th place. Youngman, tilting because the last break lasted an additional 23 seconds, thinks his pair of eights are good, but Lazarek proves him wrong. Lazarek catches an ace and eliminates Youngman at 9:27pm. Rodriguez is Lazarek's next victim. She moves in with a big ace, Scotty with a smaller ace. Lazarek hits his 6 kicker and breaks Rodriguez at 10:47pm. Tim Entwistle catches a pair of aces against Lazarek at 11:06pm, but Lazarek makes a full house and sends Entwistle packing. Heads up, Lazarek and Maryann Paura go to war. Back and forth the chips fly. The bracelet may be one hand away for either of them as they slow things down. Lazarek moves in with an ace in the hole and is called by Paura who holds a king. Lazarek hits an ace, making a pair that proves to be the best hand at the river. Scott Lazarek wins his second championship bracelet and is the first player to hold two braclets.
