This is the first event of the 2008 WSOP, which has been dubbed "The Year of the Pros." This table exemplifies just that, as the stacked final table included Kathy Leibert, Mike Sexton, Chris Bell, Mike Sowers, Phil Laak, Patrik Antonius, Amit Makhija, Andy Bloch, and Nenad Medic. For those who don't know who the winner is, the final results, as well as photos, updates logs, and videos, are available on CardPlayer.com.
