At noon today we'll see the opening hands dealt in the Max Pescatori (15th) would cash, with the eventual final table featuring both William Thorsson (3rd) doing battle for the top award.
In the end, however, it was LHE specialist Saro Getzoyan who would take down the award, winning his first WSOP bracelet after defeating Geoff Sanford in heads-up play. Getzoyan collected his $333,379 in prize money and dashed off to the airport, fully intending to return to work in Boston the next day, but got sidetracked a variety of disreputable establishments, instead launching on an eighteen-hour, booze-soaked bender with a number of PL.com staffers and a contingent of girls named after precious minerals.
