Game Highlights
Bob Paura, Winter Season 06/07 Champion reeks havick at the tables this season naming him top money maker again this Winter Season, heading into the final match, surrounded in chips and looking for his second bracelet. Scott Lazarek, the "Evil Knievel" of Hold'em strides into second rank for a try at bracelet number three. Ranking third this season, Ryan Yu, making his second appearance at a final table looking for his first bracelet. Fourth rank, Tim Entwistle Winter Season 05/06 bracelet holder, seeks his second bracelet after his sixth consecutive attempt at a final table. Rene' Rodriquez squeaks into fifth in the ranks after a second place win in game 10 of 10 which bumped Brian Hengstler and Eric Smith out of their seats. Sandy Hengstler holds her ground and surrounds herself with bracelet winners, finishing 6th in the rankings this season, having been bumped from 4th after a major shuffle in game 10 of 10.

Paura having trouble moves in with QQ only to be crushed by Hengstler's QQ accompanied by an ace kicker. He finishes in 6th place. Rodriguez finds herself on the short stack after pushing chips to Entwistle and moves in against Lazarek with 22. Lazarek's 88 holds and Rodriguez joins the cash game. A minute later, Lazarek finds a pair of kings, however so does Hengstler, but Hengstler holds the ace kicker and Lazarek crashes in fourth place. Ryan Yu, yanks chips from Entwistle after catching a set of 10's against Entwistle's QQ. Yu cannot hold on against Hengstler however, loosing a race, 66 vs AQ after the board spikes an ace. Hengstler ends up stacking Yu's chips like a child making an Empire State Building out of a Lego set. At 10:19PM, the tournament is heads up: Sandy Hengstler, with a Heads Up Tournament title, vs Tim Entwistle, bracelet holder, DPL Champion - Fall 2007, and respected as one of the best tournament players in the League. Hengstler holds an enormous chip lead. The two battle it out for one hour and ten minutes, giving Entwistle enough time to harvest the honey. At 11:29PM, Entwistle moves all in after catching a pair of aces. Hengstler calls after making a pair of kings. At the time of call, Entwistle has Hengstler by only 25 chips (a single pink chip!). Entwistle's aces hold up and he takes his second bracelet.
