Poker : Wsop Event 16

6/10/10 – Event 16 – the $1.500 buy-in Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em competition saw American young gun Carter Phillips (21) leading the field into the final day of play, opposed by 16 other hopefuls, with only Samuel Gerber of Switzerland and Mikhail Lakhitov of Russia hailing from outside the US.
Lakhitov was Carter’s nearest rival but failed to make it through to the heads up as the young American demolished the opposition on his way to the heads up, which saw Phillips confronting Samuel Gerber after Craig Bergeron departed in third place.
Phillips banked $482,774 and his first WSOP bracelet for the win, whilst Gerber took home $298,726, and Craig Bergeron’s third placing was worth $189,661.
