Scott "gunning4you" Seiver just missed making his first final table of the 2008 World Series of Poker just over a week ago, when he placed in 13th place of the $1,500 pot-limit hold'em event. He followed that up by taking 22nd place in the $10,000 mixed game world championship a few days later. Seiver made the third try the charm tonight when he beat out a tough final table featuring online professionals Scott "SCTrojans" Freeman and Adam "csimmsux" Geyer, and red hot Jacobo Fernandez, who was making his second final-table appearance for his fourth cash this summer. Seiver came in with the large stack, and he never relinquished the role of chip leader. He held the lead wire-to-wire and claimed his golden prize.

Here were the chip stacks at the start of play:

Scott Seiver: 2,512,000
