Game Highlights
Rick Quaranto, qualifying in the 5th place this season, wins his first Championship Bracelet, making him the first "Summer Guy" to win a championship title in this League! Quaranto began his journey facing two champs, Bonnie Yu Summer 2008 Champion, and Scott Lazarek, three time bracelet winner who has been on the fast train since the beginning of Winter Season 08/09 when he qualified 1st in season, then 1st in the Spring Season 09, winning his third title on February 5, 2009. Among the group, newby Harry Hartman, his first full season and his first pass into a final table. Hartman was fused into the League when he was appointed head cashier this season. Hungry for the cash he had been collecting over the past ten weeks, Hartman was among the top of the player favorites list to win this match. Quaranto knew he had to face his demons, one of them being Ryan Yu, a name welded into the final table roster, so it would seem. Quaranto was well aware that Yu's turn was up and sat armed and ready to put an end to the yellow man's dream of finally winning a bracelet. Contender Sherri White, qualifying in the 6th position proved to be Quaranto's worst nightmare as the two battled it out heads up for the bracelet in the final minutes of the tournament. White flops top pair (queens) and moves in for all of Quaranto's chips, but Quaranto calls faster that a cell phone speed dial with two pair, sevens and threes. Quaranto doubles up and leaves White in the red. The final hand: White moves it in with a pair of sevens in the hole. Quaranto peeks down at A8s and calls. History unfolds at 11:08PM EST when an ace hits the board, pairing Quaranto's ace. Quaranto swims in a pool of glory, winning the race, sending White to the sidelines, only to be back again soon to take revenge.
