WSOP -- Panayote Vilandos Wins Event No. 24
Vilandos Takes Home Second Bracelet and $607,256
Panayote Vilandos can add his name to the list of the biggest stories of the 2009 World Series of Poker. Vilandos took down Event No. 24 ($1,500 no-limit hold’em) late Saturday evening.
Vilandos is no stranger to making his way through huge no-limit hold’em fields at this year’s WSOP. Vilandos out lasted all but one player in a field of 6,012 when he finished second to Steve Sung in Event No. 4 ($1,000 no-limit hold’em). Saturday’s victory required him besting a field of 2,506 players.
Outlasting a combined 8,515 opponents in those two events, Vilandos has cashed for $1,080,539 this summer at the WSOP. Vilandos quietly sits in third for money earned, trailing only Isaac Haxton and Vitaly Lunkin.
Currently sixth in Card Player’s Player of the Year Race, Vilandos’ win in Event No. 24 was his second bracelet. The other came in a 1995 pot-limit hold’em event.
Here are the final results:
1. Panayote Vilandos – $ 607,256
2. Andy Seth – $372,855
3. Michael Greco – $248,855
4. Glenn McCaffrey – $176,165
5. Dean Hamrick – $132,380
6. Alan Jaffray – $105,699
7. David Lerman – $88,937
8. Ronnie Kevin – $79,017
9. Brian Fitzpatrick – $73,886
Here is a look at the elimination hands as featured in CardPlayer.com’s live updates
Brian Fitzpatrick Eliminated In 9th Place ($73,886)
Brian Fitzpatrick moved all-in and Panayote Vilandos looked him up.
The flop left Fitzpatrick drawing slim but the turn gave him a gutshot straight draw. The river bricked, however, and he was eliminated in 9th place.
Ronnie Kevin Eliminated In 8th Place ($79,017)
Andy Seth raised to 155,000 and Panayote Vilandos reraised to 300,000. Ronnie Kevin then moved in for 550,000 total and only Vilandos made the call.
Kevin never got any help on the board and he was eliminated in 8th place.
David Lerman Eliminated In 7th Place ($88,937)
Glenn McCaffrey raised to 115,000 before the flop and Alan Jaffray made the call. David Lerman also came along and the flop was 1043. Lerman was first to act and moved all in for 415,000. McCaffrey then reraised to get Jaffray out of the pot. Jaffray obliged by folding and the hands were shown.
Lerman was in bad shape and the K on the turn left him with very few outs. The A on the river sent Lerman home in 7th place.
Alan Jaffray Eliminated In 6th Place ($105,699)
Alan Jaffray moved all-in for 950,000 from early position and was called by Panayote Vilandos. The players then showed down their hands.

Dean Hamrick Eliminated In 5th Place (132,380)
Hamrick raised to 150,000 preflop and action folded around to Panayote Vilandos in the big blind. He proceeded to move all-in, having Hamrick covered. After some thought, Hamrick called his final 980,000 into the pot and the showdown was on.
Hamrick was racing preflop but was drawing stone-dead on the turn as Vilandos filled up. Hamrick made his exit in 5th place.
Glenn McCaffrey Eliminated in 4th Place ($176,165)
Andy Seth raised from the button and Glenn McCaffrey moved all-in behind him. Seth called and both players turned over their cards.

Michael Greco Eliminated in 3rd Place ($248,855)
