Nguyen tees up World Series Circuit title
Fittingly, on a weekend overshadowed by another prominent search for a "master," one of poker's did the namesake proud.
And at the end of the day, <a href="/poker-player_men-the-master-nguyen">Men "The Master" Nguyen</a> held off a tough final table for the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship at the <a href="/live-tournaments/wsop">World Series of Poker</a> Circuit (WSOPC) series event at Caesars Indiana.
Among those left in his wake: pros Mimi Tran and fellow final table participants Young Phan and Scott Fischman, who all surprisingly made the trek to Indiana to play for the $238,756 top prize, the 2007 WSOP Main Event seat and the championship ring.
The final table was a back-and-forth affair between the three pros and some of the lesser-known qualifiers, but in the end it came down to the gregarious Nguyen and the tough Phan heads-up.
And despite starting heads-up play with a 2-1 chip disadvantage, Nguyen turned the tables around quickly and polished off his victory just before midnight when his pocket sixes held off Phan's ace-ten off-suit for the win.
Fischman finished ninth, being the first to exit the final table, and Greenstein finished 17th.
The rest of the final table results are as follows:
|1st||Men "the Master" Nguyen||$238,756|
|7th||George "Joe" Lusby||$29,476|
