Vilandos and Ivey headline WSOP June 13
It's been more than a decade since his last WSOP win, but for Panayote "Pete" Vilandos, a bracelet in 2009 is just as sweet as it was in 1995.
Vilandos outlasted a field of 2,506 players in Event 24, $1.500 No-Limit Hold'em, snatching the bracelet after taking out youngster Andy Seth heads-up.
The two players got all-in with very deep stacks early in the heads-up match, with Vilandos's A-5 besting Seth's A-J thanks to a gutshot wheel draw that got there.
"I played my best poker today," Vilandos said." I played very carefully and I knew how they played."
"The entire time I was watching how they play. I got lucky at the end of course."
Seth brings in $372,855 for second, while Vilandos goes home with the first-place prize of $607,256.
Event 25 - $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Eight or Better
The name on everyone's lips today is Andy Black and John Racener all within striking distance.
