Bop! Brandon Cantu Wins WPT Shooting Star!
Many a pro turned out for this year's Bay 101 Shooting Star but they all went down in flames before it was over, save one. Brandon Cantu finished his Day 1 heat as chip leader and only relinquished that title momentarily on his way to victory. Racking up a total of six bounties as well as the $10,000 bonus for his early chip leader status, Cantu comes out more than $1 million ahead for his time here in San Jose.

Czech Yo' Self: Final Table Is Set In Prague
After six more hours of play at the PokerStars EPT Prague main event we're down to our final table, as a starting field of 555 has been reduced to the ultimate nine contenders.
